UX in Action, Usability Workshop and UX Portfolio Reviews
Hey fellow designers and innovators. We have a great Usability Workshop planning for you and more. First timers to this location please check the map link for the general location and to find the front doors of the meeting room that can be hard to find. All are welcome to bring your own dinner and drink or snacks as there are plenty of tables and chairs - even a frig and nuker if needed. We will start things up just after 6p but come any time. We will be having fun all night.

I will then cover Don Norman's (famous father of UX) 10 Usability Criteria or Heuristics that help make everything more user-friendly. As a group, using the Heuristics we just covered, we will put them into action and evaluate the LinkedIn Mobile App. Learning to identify and apply these Heuristics will help improve your UX Design, Evaluation, Expert Reviews and help you advise others to avoid many common UX mistakes. I will try to save plenty of time for Q&A. Level: Beginner to Intermediate Prerequisites: Have a LinkedIn account and have the app downloaded on your mobile device.

Sell yours skills to stir up some side business or just get some valuable feedback on your project to get it moving forward, maybe something to add to your UX portfolio. Last, I will give an update on our UX Mobile App Design Project - Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station App. By the time we get through this UX Design Series we will have completely gone through the entire UX Design Process.
