Join Tech in Motion for our 14th meetup where we will be bringing you an evening all about design and networking. We will be meeting for a fun filled evening of networking and learning at the beautiful Infinity Club Lounge by the Embarcadero. We will be providing complimentary drinks and light snacks. Come along to this modern style venue and let's talk technology.

The interface as we know it is fading away. As technological advancements such as wearables, IoT, and contextual software rapidly seep into the core of our daily lives, these new systems are pivoting traditional user experience thinking toward dynamically, relevant experience design.

Join us to learn some of the principles and best practices in this new era of UX & UI design. User experience strategist and presenter, Thom Milkovic, will discuss topics such as:

- Designing a UI no one will see, touch or click

- Contextual content as a new form of UI

- Fundamentals of adaptable information design

- The war between personalization and relevance

- Predicting user behavior and fulfilling specific needs

- Using the power of Invisible Design responsibly

Bring your questions, ideas, and concerns for the Q&A following the presentation.
