**Please RSVP in order to ensure you can park and to help us estimate how much food to order.**
For our July meeting, we will have small group discussions (table topics). We have planned for these 6 topics. If the group is smaller than anticipated, we may find it better to drop a topic or two and save them for a future meeting.
1. Promoting user-centered design in your workplace 2. IA & Interaction Design: The same or different? 3. What types of prototypes for different situations 4. How to describe/document interactions for Flash/RIAs 5. Annotations v functional specs 6. Working with developers/coders
FOOD Pizza, pasta, and salads.

After parking, walk north on Spring, cross 2nd Street, make a left on 1st Street, and enter the building at 202 W 1st Street. The guard at the reception area will have a sign-in list and will direct participants to the meeting room on the 5th floor.

Los Angeles is home to one of the largest volunteer-run User Experience (UX) professional development organization in the world. The Los Angeles User Experience Meetup has more than 3,000 members. Since the organization was founded on April 21, 2007 by Lynn Boyden, Chris Chandler, Craig Nakano and Weston Thompson, over 50 events have been held for User Experience Designers, Information Architects, Interaction Designers, UX Researchers, Usability Analysts and Engineers and others interested in UX-related topics. Our events are open to the public, are usually free and range in size from small gatherings to events with 400 attendees. Some of the topics covered since 2007 have been accessibility, taxonomy, internet technology, lean UX, Customer Experience (CX), mobile design, prototyping and much more. The group also partners with other local UX groups to put together events. A listing of the other UX organizations in the area can be found on this Quora thread.
Throughout the years, many UX professionals in the Los Angeles area have contributed substantial time and effort to grow the community. In particular, these leaders played a crucial part in the group's history:
