Westley Knight,

With over 20 years experience working in web and digital, both as a developer and a designer, Westley helps teams to design and build user-centred experiences across any platform, and has done in almost every industry you can imagine. Westley has a passion for sharing his experience and knowledge directly by integrating with multi-disciplinary teams, or to a wider audience by speaking at conferences, and writing articles. His book "UX for Developers" (Apress, 2018) aims to close the gap between designers and developers and integrate user-centred practices in day-to-day development work.
