In Jun 2013, I joined Perforce Software as the UX Design and Research Intern for 3 months. During my internship, I assisted the UX designers on the interaction design and visual design for Swarm, a collaborative coding platform, and Commons, Perforce documents management system.

Interaction and UI Design

I assisted another UX designer in interaction design and UI design for Perforce Swarm, an online collaborative coding platform, and Perforce Commons, a cloud-based document management system. I was responsible for creating high fidelity mockups with interaction notes and visual specs for engineers.

I assisted the user researcher with contextual inquiries and usability testing to study developers’ behaviors and needs in collaborative coding and version control. I also designed and launched a survey on online document collaboration and looked at competitor products on version control and file management.
