For those of you who are on the fence about whether to come to the next SandCHI meeting, let me give you three good reasons to come. =)
??? 1. We have three great panel members for you:
Jonathan Kies, Sr. Director of UX, Qualcomm
Cody Frew, UX Designer, Mitchell
Anna Kaufman, UX Designer, Nokia
Each company takes a different approach to organizing UX departments, doing development projects and what types of products to build, so it should be a good discussion. More on the talks and meeting can be found at sandchi.org.
??? 2. We have moved the time to 7pm so that you don't have to brave the evil SD rush-hour traffic. And you have the convenient excuse that you're just going out for a drink after work with your colleagues, and you can have a bite to eat at the same time! For those that prefer to drink earlier, some of us will show up at 6:30. (Location is the La Jolla Brew House in La Jolla)
??? 3. We need to show that we can bring in larger crowds or we will lose our very own bartender and have to order in the main room <shocking I know>. So please come show your support for the SandCHI group and get to meet some leading UX experts from these well known tech companies. Also, there are happy hour specials on drinks and food!
PLEASE FORWARD this announcement to other local tech groups and friends who may be interested.
See you all there,
