Providing the right information in your designs will keep those relationships healthy and productive. _____________________________ Olivia Griggs Communications and Community Engagement Coordinator at Addiction Services of Thames Valley Good UX Starts Good Conversations UX/UI is storytelling; communications is storytelling and those who tell stories effectively shape the narrative of society. The intersection between UX/UI and communications is strong. To understand the parallels between the two processes of each discipline can help develop better products and in tern better serve your publics. This is what we will be exploring, how the two disciplines complement one another, principles of corporate communications strategy that can be applied to UX/UI and how good UX/UI is integral to successful communications tactics. _____________________________ PANEL Moderator: Emily Wyss Product Manager and Designer at Race Roster Greg Smith Sr. Software Developer at Race Roster Damon Muma Front-end Development, User Experience at London Life Himadri Hvyas Front-end Developer at tbk Creative Norm Roussel Senior UX Designer at Media Sonar _____________________________ London Front-end Development Meetup Hang out and discuss JavaScript, CSS and other front-end related tips, tricks, hacks, and frameworks with some of the other local developers.

The group started as the London PHP meet-up (Derek Martin and Brad Brothers) but the scope was expanded to shift from a niched meetup to a community group that is relatively stack agnostic. Sometimes we have talks and sometimes we all meet and hangout. We cover whatever is of interest to the community. Organizers: Eric Drouillard and Joe Lindsay https://www.meetup.com/London-Full-Stack/ _____________________________ Ladies that UX a friendly and informal group of like-minded women and men who get together monthly to discuss hot topics in user experience. If you're a designer, developer, or a member of the tech community, expect to have great conversations around the latest UX/UI methodologies and principles, research, accessibility & so much more! There's no requirement for joining, just enjoying yourself! We love new faces & fresh perspectives. https://www.meetup.com/Ladies-that-UX-London-Ontario/ Photo by Kaleidico on Unsplash

    What we're about

    How might we bridge the gap and see more women leading and influencing the user experience, tech and design fields… right here in London, Ontario?

    That’s the question we’re on a mission to answer. The Ladies the UX, London Ontario chapter is a group of women and men who aim to build a positive space in the UX community to share, collaborate, and build their UX skills.

    We’re a friendly and informal group that fosters an atmosphere of learning, mentorship and support. If you are looking to break into the UX industry, develop your career, collaborate on a project or just interested in what UX is all about, we can help!

    Everyone welcome!
