UX Design Project Intro and TA Training

Irvine Ranch Water District - Community Meeting Room

Hey everyone, start the year off right and get out to a Meetup. Since we are not able to meet again on our regular weekday until the end of the month I thought I would add this intermediate Meetup to introduce the "new" design project we will be working on. This is a full UX design process iteration of the current EV mobile app design project. By the time we get through this UX Design Series we will have completely gone through the entire UX Design Process. Jump in any time but monthly continuity is super important. Learn something new or contribute to the project and show off your UX, Dev or Biz Dev skills and maybe stir up some freelance work if desired. The possibilities are endless! Spread the word. Benefits: • Add this as a portfolio project, add UX artifacts or resume items, get professional references. • Learn the entire UX Design Process, sharpen and practice with individual UX skills, UX team experience. • UX and Dev recognition, get your name on a published app if we can get a Dev to code it. • Practice group presenting and public speaking. Not a requirement but plenty of opportunity to practice in this safe no-pressure environment. I am also looking for TA's (Teaching Assistants) to help with the Meetup and design project. This Meetup will introduce you to volunteer opportunities to help out. Again, something great to add to your resume. If you are new to this location please use this map link or you will get lost. Google maps does not help you find the front doors. The IRWD Community Meeting Room addr is 15500 Sand Canyon Ave., Irvine. Here is the map link. IRWD Community Meeting Room Map http://bit.ly/ocddirwd1 No prior UX Experience Needed! Hope to see you there. Let me know if you have any questions. Best to PM me on Meetup and/or find me on LinkedIn. p.s. I also teach on humanism, philosophy, critical thinking, and social justice issues among other things. Just ask.

UX Happy Hour

Trade Food Hall

Our first UX Happy Hour of 2019! Let’s meet up at Trade Food Hall in Irvine (http://www.tradefoodhall.com/) to get some drinks at Center Hub (http://www.centerhubbar.com/) and talk UX amongst friends and fellow designers, developers, product managers, content strategists and researchers. Look for us in the main seating area of the food hall, grab a drink, some delicious food and chat about design with fellow professionals. Parking: Parking can occasionally be difficult at this venue. There is one main parking lot for the food hall directly out front. Try to carpool or show up early to get a spot! If there's an issue with parking, there is additional parking available at Von Karman Towers (it's $1.50 each 15 minutes)
