Lynne Polischuik will be discussing contracting and freelancing for UX at this meetup. Lynne will cover the practical and personal considerations of being an indie designer, including how to get over the fear of making the jump, where and how to find clients, managing the business side of design, and what it's like to work alone.
This meetup group follows this format: 6-6:30 networking, 6:30-7ish, the short talk and questions, 7-8, more discussion in groups or among yourselves about the topic. You can think of this IA/CS meetup as an informal talk with a lot of discussion. There's no slideshow, more like an intimate talk among 20 peers with some drinks and dinner. I hope you'll join us!
