UX Happy Hour Auckland

Hello fellow UX'ers,

It's been a while since we got together and we (Steve Arnold and I) thought it might be worthwhile to meet up informally over a finely crafted brew and chat, network, swap stories and discuss what we want to do this year for the UX Meetup group. What do we want to do?

One thing I'd like to do is a monthly UX Happy Hour.

So, we are doing this, Thursday April 12th @ 5:30 - 8:30 ish. We have a room at Brews on Quay already booked.

Please RSVP for a headcount. Please offer feedback.

Cheers,
Haunani

    Hi guys, yes it was really good! I didn't get to talk to too many people though. I agree with the things Matt suggested, especially the employment and practice stuff. Great start!

    BTW, did anyone happen to pick up one of my clickable colourful Sharpie pens? I'm missing just 1 :( Check your bags and let me know please.

    Matt Landry gave me a great suggestion for future meetups:
    - Pub meetup frequently, maybe every other time?
    - Meet at a conference room at a host other times
    - 30min talks on various aspects of UX development practice
    - 30 min talks on things that went horribly wrong
    - Solicit hand raises of ppl looking for work/looking to hire at beginning of mtgs

    Great idea for our Meetup group to, you know, meet up regularly. And if beer is involved too then so much the better!

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.
