UXtoberfest - An intro and discussion of UX and the Web

We're calling it UXtoberfest! This month we will get together for a discussion on UX, that's User Experience, and how it relates to how you work with the web.

Cynthia Thomas (@deziner) of Translator and Jim Broennimann (@loosedog) of GS Design will join us to talk about the basics of UX, what it is and what it isn't, and open up the group to a discussion on UX.  Bring your questions, ideas, and brains.  This will be a very stimulating discussion of an important topic for any web designer or developer.

C2 Graphics Productivity Solutions will be sponsoring the nights event and providing food and drinks.  Check out c2ps.com for mor information on their classes and services in the design and development industry.

    This meetup had extremely VALUABLE insights into the User Experience and thought processes. My focus has always been on the think, feel and do of online consumers, and Cindy and Jim took that to another level!! Thanks...

    First of all Great presentation last night. Thanks to everyone that made it happen.

    Hope it's not inappropriate to throw in a plug here for Artworks for Milwaukee. If you were at the meetup last night you may have heard a group of kids having a great time in the room next door. They are the present group of interns participating in the program. Rather than getting into the details here checkout their website: http://www.artworksformilwaukee.org/

    Two things: I know this group, WEB414, likes a good time so checkout the 4th annual Night by the River event coming up on Nov. 2nd http://www.artworksformilwaukee.org/night-by-the-river-benefit.html, secondly, this group can really use volunteers with your skill sets. Check with the programs director Terry Murphy on how you can help: Terry Murphy <[masked]>

    Thanks!

    =( I don't think I'll be able to make it tonight now. Too many competing demands. Have fun everyone. Learn lots. Share lots.

    Thanks for coming to talk with us Cindi. Everyone make sure you have your questions or topics ready so we can have a good stimulating discussion.

    Also, be sure to update your RSVP if you can't make it so Erica from C2 knows how much food and drink to bring.

    Should be an awesome even tonight!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight! Excited for the discussion. :) Be sure to bring your questions/topics you'd like to talk about. We'll be going through some high-level thoughts of our own, but would love to spend most of the time on your topics. See you there!
