The Tampa Bay User Experience Group is one of the largest volunteer led user experience professional organizations in south central Florida. Krissy Scoufis created the group in August, 2013 with the goal of providing a network of design practitioners, product owners, web developers and product strategists who could share UX methodologies, principles and techniques. Mike Gallers and Beth Galambos joined the leadership team shortly after the group started and together they have hosted over 73 events. The group’s foundational pillars are to provide free mentorship, education and community to evangelize the User Experience discipline. Frequently partnering with other regional technology meetups, the Tampa Bay UX Meetup group has fostered a cross functional network of professionals dedicated to putting users at the center of product strategy and design.
Our monthly meetings are casual, informative and fun. We have an active and growing slack group that keeps us connected as well. You are welcome to join us!
World Usability Day is Thursday, November 20, 2020, and we're getting ready to celebrate in Tampa Bay!
The 2020 theme will be announced soon.
World Usability Day is single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.
It is about celebration and education—celebrating the strides we have made in creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better. It is about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and that human error is a misnomer.
***No one should have to suffer through products and services that get in their way. People should not be made to feel stupid by technology.***
