Details

For July, we'll be covering Dark Patterns. For this event, we'll discuss what Dark Patterns are, the psychology behind why they work, and look at examples of some of the most common Dark Patterns in use in modern website design.

We'll also host a practical session where we identify dark patterns in the wild and explore ethical alternatives to their use.

Drinks and snacks will be provided because they make everything better.

We will be live streaming this event as well - use the link below to view the event remotely!
