SBUX Lunch and Learn: Getting into UX

At this lunch and learn, we'll discuss our various backgrounds and how we made it into the User Experience profession.  This is a great opportunity to share our experiences with UX newbies and those seeking out a new career in User Experience.

Lunch is not included.  This meetup is limited to only 15 people, so sign up fast!

The goal of our SBUX Lunch and Learns is to foster specific, focused discussion in a small and casual group environment.  If there is a specific topic you would like to see for future Lunch and Learn events, please contact us!

    Thank you for the feedback! While its fun to have everyone together, we agree that today's group was a little too big for the type of discussion we hope to foster at these lunch and learns. We'll be making some changes to how we manage these events, including to reinstate the 10 person limit.

    What's great about these L&Ls is that they help our group gauge the collective interest in a particular topic. It's clear that 'getting started in UX' is high on the list, so we're looking into adding more events catered specifically to that theme. So, stay tuned!

    Really enjoyed talking with and learning from the people around me. Only wish I had more contact with people at the other end of the table. :)

    It would helpful for all of us if another one of these lunch and learns could be planned or we could e-mail in basic questions regarding starting out in a career in UX design. Thank you very much.

      Hi Lyle,
      Sorry you couldn't make it today. We encourage everyone to engage in any UX related discussions on our meetup message board. Feel free to start up a new thread and ask the group any specific questions you may have!

    Hi Folks, I just joined this meetup group. I'm a UI developer at a local startup company, Eucalyptus. I see that it's got a waiting list going. Let me know if I can still crash the lunch tomorrow. Thank you all!

    I bet each one of us has a unique path to the UX field and that will be fascinating to hear. This infographic http://www.fastcodesign.com/1671735/infographic-the-intricate-anatomy-of-ux-design#1 shows many of the fields that are related to UX. Which fields have influenced you...and which of them have you influenced?
