Ready to take your app idea to the next level?

iOS Developers Meetup is excited to offer a 4-hour workshop that teaches you how to design an app that engages your users.

This hands-on course is a perfect introduction to UX Design for anyone with app ideas. The instructor will walk UX design patterns of top apps in the App Store. 

The instructor will also go over three different design tools, an easy tool, and general tool, and an advanced tool.

There will be two hands-on working sections where all students will work through designing an app in small groups and then sharing their designs with the class.  This practical experience will give you the confidence to practice what you learned and increase your confidence in using different UX design tools.

Pre-requisites

• Sketching tools of your choice: pen, pencil, or iPad, etc.

• Mac, PC, or iOS device

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
