Next Meetup

May Nebraska UX at Spreetail in Lincoln
We're excited to host the May Nebraska UX meetup at Spreetail and unveil our latest office expansion on Nebraska Innovation Campus. Join us for networking, food, drinks, tours, and two presentations from UX Engineers @ Spreetail, Mike Jensen and Patrick Jackman. PRESENTATION 1: Is a hotdog a sandwich? A case for clarity in conceptual design From "ope" to "oops", and "hoagie" to "hero", vernacular changes between states, cities, companies, and even squads. Using the age-old argument surrounding the true identity of the hot dog, Mike Jensen will discuss the effect language has on the concepts we design. PRESENTATION 2: A Curious Thing – Maintaining a Sense of Wonder in Design Stagnation is the opposite of progress. No one wants to feel stagnant, yet it can be so easy to fall into a rut if we’re not careful. Our own Patrick Jackman discusses staying curious and creative in our craft with a learner's mentality. Agenda: 6:00 - 7:00: Networking, food, and drinks 7:00 - 7:45: Presentations 7:45 - 8:30: Networking and short tours

What we're about

Public Group

What is Nebraska UX?

• Our group exists to connect anyone passionate about learning and teaching user-centered design.

• We believe we can grow the discipline in Nebraska by sharing intimate stories about our work in the field.

• Our members present case studies that go far beyond what you'll learn on your own, searching Google. It's important to tell authentic stories that you won't find anywhere else.

Who should join?

Whether you're a UX team of one, part of a growing design team, or working within a large corporation, this group is very welcoming to anyone who cares about making products and services work for users first. Our members include designers, developers, project managers, product managers, user researchers, marketing specialists, and company directors—to name a few.

Why join Nebraska UX?

If you're trying to make a difference within your organization, or you're hoping to strike out on your own and build the next great thing, our group can give you real, practical advice from peers who've done the work. Because our group is small (< 40 regular attendance as of 2015), you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions of the speakers and presenters.

What's a typical meetup like?

Pretty casual. We spend the first 30 minutes chatting, drinking and eating usually—depending on the host and evening sponsor. Then, someone gives a prepared presentation, conducts an organized exercise, or leads a group discussion. That lasts for 30-60 minutes. Finally, we chat and network for another 15-30 minutes before people trickle out, or the host closes the night.
