Let's talk about coding & user experience

  • August 21, 2012 · 7:00 PM

So, as UX professionals, we need to know about quite a bit - interaction heuristics, visual design, business analysis, concept modeling, usability analysis, concept modeling, and even some marketing. In the last couple of years, there has been more and more talk about UX designers needing to know how to code or, at the very least, understand coding concepts.

How much coding do we need to know? What programming concepts are most important for us understand? Where is the line for us - where does user experience design end and front-end development begin or is there no line? This is becoming an important (and, I've found, heated) topic and I think it would make a great discussion topic for this group. What are your thoughts?

Bring those thoughts to Dino and be ready to discuss this with fellow area UX and IT professionals on Monday, July 16th.

Dino is right across the street from the Cleveland Park metro stop, making it super-convenient. Dino also has their Restaurant Week pricing still available and, unlike other restaurants, they make their entire menu available at the RW prices.

PS - I had to change the venue for our meet up. A bit of a mixup in the email reservation process Founding Farmers made meeting there impossible. Thankfully, Dino came to the rescue. I understand that this last minute change might prevent you from making it - if you have to cancel as a result, please make sure that you cancel your RSVP so the next person on the waiting list will be notified. Thanks in advance!

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Please note: I'm closing the reservations five days before our meet-up. This gives me time to reserve a table for us. This still does not guarantee us a table at the time listed for our meet-up - many locations in DC are booked fully a week, even two weeks ahead. So, the listed time (and maybe even location) may change. I apologize for this inconvenience, but I'll do everything I can to make sure the location and time do not change.

If you have RSVP'd and suddenly can't make it, please make sure to change your RSVP status on the website as soon as you can. This allows those on the waiting list to be notified that there is an open spot.

Please feel free to contact me if you have ~any~ questions or concerns. Thanks!

    I'm sitting at the bar, just inside the front door. :-)

    Okay, I've never been able to master the RSVP system for meetups. Apparently this meetup's RSVP won't auto-add unless I unlock the RSVP cut off... I think...? Anyway, if you were suddenly added from the wait list and are wondering why that didn't happen... heh, now you know.

    Wow! That filled up FAST!!! Whew! If the waiting list gets really huge, I'll see if Founding Farmers can handle a larger group and open the RSVP list to more people.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
