    I loved your article!! I have been learning about UX behavior since 2010.. It's not a long road lol... but I really like this way to think projects and because this I studied a lot Information Architecture... But I really think that UX Boot Camp will be very important to improve my UX skills. However I'm Brazilian Designer and speak a intermediate/advanced english ("Good enough english" LOL)... And I don't know if I will understand all... Do you know if are other foreigns?

    thanks in advance for your help

    Teachers SHOULD pay more attention to how students learn. I love that you had a dance routine to figure out participial phrases. Imagine if more schools encouraged unconventional ways of learning like that.

    I like this article a lot. Many of the things discussed here I can see applied beyond design. Thanks for sharing. It's thought provoking.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I agree with your points. Design is about how people function with a thing. Anything omitted from the definition is as important, if not more. And creativity does come at the cost of chaos. However, order does to at the cost of repression. Experiential learning allows a diverse environment for forward thinking. Thank you for being a part of it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this article. We do business development in underserved communities. Our work includes the businesses too small and poor to be considered worth of attention by most. They provide the greatest sense of accomplishment when we help them expand their visions. They also respond well to unconventional approaches. They tend not to need to unlearn “best practices” and respond well to little victories.
