UX designers, project managers, start-up founders or anyone who wants to have some software/device/concept tested. You'll need to bring along a user (it's required) and maybe some swag if you have some laying around.
UX Speed Dating (http://uxspeeddating.org/) is a monthly event where tech professionals get to present a product to three users for in-person feedback. It's formatted like a speed dating event with a twist. Product owners sit stationary and the users switch to a new tests every 20 minutes. Users are entered to win a grand-prize (see below) presented at the end of the event. Check out the fact sheet (http://uxspeeddating.org/UXSD_format_and_rules.pdf) for more details.
LaunchDarkly (http://launchdarkly.com/) is the platform that allows you to quickly iterate on your features. Roll out features for feedback from beta users. It's a great tool for feature testing. They've graciously offered us space to use for our event.
*We're looking for a food/beverage sponsor. Sponsors get to make a pitch at the event and are featured prominently on the event page. Please contact us ([masked]) if interested.
