    Romy, It's generally hard to find the perfect spot convenient to everyone. However, from all of our meetups, this current location seems to fit the best: Quiet, personal, wi-fi, ample parking, etc.

    The only suggestion that can be given is either come early to account for traffic, or if it's a problem for multiple members, suggest time changes to accomodate those who have to fight through traffic from work. We've tried downtown areas, and frankly, parking has been a problem.

    Wow! great turnout.

    I have a suggestion--would you be open to scheduling the meetups closer to downtown San Jose, downtown Mountain View or downtown Palo Alto, somewhere walkable?

    The Techmart has lots of parking, but it's not an energizing venue. You'd also have to swim through some of the worst South Bay traffic to get there around 6:30pm. I might be the only person with these needs--if this doesn't match what everyone else wants, so be it!

    Glad to make the meet up yesterday. The discussion was an eye-opener to me. Not having worked in the enterprise space, I was baffled to hear that UX-ers have to justify their existence to engineers. I'd like to learn more about the various methodologies and best practices. Is there any interest in any mini hands-on workshops? How about getting speakers?

    It was an illuminating discussion, great participation. We can go forward with mutually beneficial topics.
    Of cause my interest is to research on quantifying ease-of-use to save cost, time, and effort in product/app development.

    Hello Romy,

    Thank you for suggested about the place.
    I also have interest there as a candidate site on next meetup.

    Could you please tell me the details?

    July 24, 2012

  • Romy I.

    Would you be able to work somewhere closer to downtown San Jose? There's a coworking space (Citizen Space) that might be interested in holding the meetings there.

    July 23, 2012

  • Masahide B.

    Thank you for your proposal.
    Fortunately, I was able to get a conference room from Kristen who is this meetup new member.(Near of Great America)

    I think I can announcement of the place soon.

    Also, If you already have any details of the discuss, please let me know and please share for the members.
