More than often, UI and UX are used interchangeably.
But actually, UI is a part of User eXperience, by means of which a user interacts with a software.
Along with a comprehensive coverage of Adobe Experience Design and UI/UX principles, these are the highlights :
introduction to the general software development process
links to external resources for fonts, colors, icons, images, vectors, etc., wherever appropriate
all the examples explained in the course can be downloaded as a part of the course content
various techniques for testing your prototype
things to keep in mind before building the final product
compiling a bunch of designs which work as an inspiration throughout the design phase with the help of a mootboard
unputdownable assignments to keep you engaged
Here's a quick analogy. You might have noticed the Login/Sign Up button, no matter how fancy it looks, is mostly on the top right corner of a website. The design of the button, the color, the font, the size, is UI. The reason that button is placed there, however, is UX. That's because when we open a website, we have a tendency to look at the corners first and not the middle portion. This is a very brief example of how UI and UX differ.
When it comes to implementation, Adobe XD, which has quickly become the industry standard for UI designing, is an obvious choice. So here we provide a comprehensive course that includes everything right from installing Adobe XD to exporting and sharing your design. We begin by taking a look at how to quickly download and install Adobe XD, followed by a quick overview of the general software development process. Then, we talk about UI and UX in detail, including various principles and how the UI/UX process fits in the general software development process. After we are acquainted with the principles, we visit a few popular websites and try to identify certain patterns and trends. Next, we build our own mock-up and prototypes, for a website and an app, followed by a few testing strategies. Then, as we approach the end of the course, we look at how to export and share these designs and how to use them further for the development phase.
What will you learn in this course:
- Get thorough in using Adobe XD (Adobe Experience Design).
- Differentiate between a good and a not-so-good design by identifying with the UI/UX principles
- Build Prototypes and Mock-Ups of Websites and Apps with Adobe XD
- Explore various Design Trends and implement them for yourself

It took me a little over 3 months to build my first Snakes and Ladders game in C++. This happened in class 12th. I think I can hack it together over a weekend now. Programming, you see, is my superpower. I start from a blank file and literally create anything I can dream of. It's like magic. I just need to type the spells using my keyboard instead of saying them out loud while waving a wand. Crazy as it sounds, it just clicks.
I was introduced to programming in a very fascinating way, and I will never forget that day. (PS : You can drop me a message on LinkedIn - (https://www.linkedin.com/in/codewithaquib/) to listen to the full story!) Since then, I've always wanted to become a Software Engineer. I enrolled for the 5 years integrated course and eventually completed my M.Tech in Software Engineering from Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT University), Vellore in 2019 with a 9-point CGPA.
Being a technopreneur myself, I love to work with startups where I can be actively involved in the product development process. I currently Mentor students in Web Development and other Programming Frameworks and tools with UpGrad and MyCaptain. I also take up freelance Web/App Development projects.
In addition to programming, I have a knack for teaching. It started with explaining concepts to a few friends after class, then led to conducting seminars for the entire class and it just took off from there. I have mentored over 50,000 students in various Programming Languages and Web Development frameworks so far with several startups including UpGrad, Hero Vired and MyCaptain. I have also taken several on-ground bootcamps in universities like IIT Jammu and SCSVMV University, Kanchipuram.
An entrepreneur by passion, you can find me reading a crime thriller, writing philosophical poems about life or catching up on some brilliant cinema when I am not working!
