Always Be Closing

Whether you want it or not, you're the constant victim of neuro-marketing. Understand the unconscious reasons for your online actions, and how to apply psychology-meets-UX to your own apps.

The rationale behind this proposal is that I assume there will be quite some attendees who work on their own startups, have to advice on UX or are just interested in the human mind. Is it a Ruby talk? No. Is it interesting to web developers and humans in general? Definitely!

Disclaimer: I am a Rubyist, not a psychologist. I've been interested in (online) influence and persuasion for a while though and have read pretty much all the standard works on the subject. I may not be an expert, but I do teach some useful tricks.

    Hello there author! :)

    Even though the topic is really interesting to me, I can't understand how it relates to Ruby. Would you care to expand a little bit the description addressing this?
