Form is nothing without function, and an app that looks nice, but barely works is proof.

Aspiring designers, take note. The UI and UX Design bootcamp is a six-course bundle that teaches the skills necessary for creating apps with great interfaces, as well as the psychology and design patterns underlying them.

The bootcamp opens with Become a Senior UX Design Strategist, a course that focuses entirely on the professional design workflow. The lessons cover important UX strategies, productivity hacks, user interviews, and how to lead a design team.

Rapid Prototyping with Ionic looks at using AngularJS to create full-featured interfaces, and Android Design covers Google’s highly acclaimed Material Design guidelines. The content is comprehensive, taking in specifics such as typography and color, and showing how to utilize the Android Studio IDE.

Games such as Flappy Bird can seem mystifyingly addictive, but How to Build Habit-Forming Products explores the tactics that keep users coming back for more. Mobile User Experience walks through the design strategy behind mobile apps, including usability testing, while the Mobile UI and UX Design Course looks at cutting-edge interface design trends.

For anyone eyeing a job in design, this bundle is the perfect introduction. The courses are usually worth $995 in total, but you can grab the bundle for $39 for a limited time. The price includes lifetime access to all the content on desktop and mobile devices–now that’s an awesome user experience.
