As part of this year's vision to create better connections in the UX community we are borrowing a successful idea from our friends in San Diego at UX Speakeasy so you can meet peers and possible mentors right in your neighborhood.
We are hosting a small-scale event using a mock speed dating format that allows you to quickly make connections in your community.
Here's how it will work:
Meet at the venue and socialize. Make sure you connect with Deanna and Eleanor for any directions they might have for you.
You'll be given a set of questions and paired off with someone you don't know, then be given 5 mins to learn as much about each other as possible. You'll have 9 rounds to meet others.
More socializing and continued conversation
A temporary Slack channel will be created so that you can follow up with contacts after the event.
This is a 21 and over, no-host event. You will be responsible for your own food and drink.
