Delve into the future of AI and accessibility with Hernan Arber, AI Product Strategy Lead at UserWay.
Could you please tell us about your background and how you entered the industry?
I am an entrepreneur, musician, and software engineer. I’ve had an extensive career in the startup industry spanning nearly two decades. I began my journey in the industry as a junior developer, and over time, I worked my way up to engineering director. Now, I lead the AI product strategy at UserWay.

While attending university, an interest in artificial intelligence sparked, so I focused on AI-based technologies and their applications. My thesis, “An AI-based Musical Sequencing System,” served as the culmination of my studies and earned me my Bachelor’s degree in computer science, and I’ve been delving deeper into AI ever since.
When it comes to product strategy and development, what is your approach? Can you guide us through your process, starting from the inception of the idea to the execution of FixMyCode.ai?
My approach to product strategy is relatively straightforward. I need to understand the data inputs and how we can optimize the sources. After processing these, I need to understand the required processes for this data and, finally, how we want to present the output in a user-friendly way that produces the WOW-Effect to offer a world-class experience. FixMyCode.ai originated internally at UserWay to help developers enhance website accessibility using AI. Over time, it evolved into the FixMyCode experience that is now available for everyone to use and enjoy for free. My involvement in FixMyCode focused on optimizing the processes, organizing the team, and working on the deployment stage, which included working on the UX and delivering the product to the world. Ultimately, the credit belongs to the team at UserWay.
