UI Design Mini-Boot Camp

Every Website or app that we design is an opportunity to communicate important information to our users, extend our reach and communicate the personality of our brand. Following best practices and standard design methodologies are crucial to its success. In this talk, Jan will walk you through the various design processes from wireframing, actual prototyping and visual design in order to create usable, beautiful and memorable interfaces for the Web.

Our speaker, Jan Cavan is a Designer, Illustrator and Front-End Developer whose work has been featured in various online publications (PBS, Mashable, Smashing Magazine), books and magazines (.NET, Web Designer, Photoshop Design Tools Japan) worldwide. She designs at SendGrid and runs Dawghouse Design Studio, a design blog dedicated to offering tutorials and resources to the design community. Connect with her on Twitter (http://twitter.com/jancavan).

I hear the new Windows 8 phones and tablets have great UI!

    Speaker = great! Food = great! Choice of venue = not so great for the amount of people that showed up.

    Speaker was knowledgable and enthusiastic. Information was valuable and interesting. Logistics of computer/presentation screen was less than ideal. Nonetheless, a great meeting!

    I'm new to this group and MeetUp in general, so a couple of questions :)
    Is this Just on the 30h of August, or is it a part of a series of events?
    Do I have to pay anything to participate?
    How long is this meet up?
    Thanks!

      Hi Vineha, it's just on the 30th. We try to keep the events free (excluding parking if necessary). Plan for an hour and a half to two hours total including pre-event announcements, presentation and Q&A.
