Amazing how time flies! This May, we'll speak with another of our fellow Singaporean designer who is coming back home from San Francisco, Xinni C.
Xinni (https://www.linkedin.com/in/xinni/) is a UX designer at Google, currently crafting experiences for over 1 billion people at YouTube.
After graduating from NUS in 2016 with a Computer Science degree, Xinni moved to California to immerse herself in Silicon Valley's vibrant tech culture. She hopes to share learnings during her trips back to Singapore, attend local anime conventions and scarf down lots of fish soup.
Together, we will explore topics like:
- Working in Google as a UX designer (woohoo!)
- Personal journey of applying for a UX design role
- Her learnings on creating impact within the organisation
This session will be very suitable for the curious who wants to learn more about working in Google / YouTube, entering the industry and be inspired by a fellow young designer's journey.
Disclaimer: Xinni will be attending the event as herself. Opinions expressed in the conversation are Xinni's own, and not those of Google or Alphabet.
Agenda for the evening
7 - 7:30pm: Registration, networking, refreshments
7:30 - 8:45pm: Conversation with Xinni
8:45 - 9pm: Open mic
We're hoping to keep the session really informal and casual where it is more conversation centric so bring along some burning questions to the session. The value of the meetup is as good as the questions asked :)
Also, if you would like to ask questions privately, please email me at [masked] and I'll ask on your behalf :) Alternatively, you can tweet us the questions @IxDASG (http://www.twitter.com/ixdasg) and we will have them answered!
As we have very limited space, please only RSVP if you can make it so that others can confirm their attendance. See you there!
