What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in learning more about UX. I started this group to meet other UX enthusiasts in my area, and because I felt that most of the UX meetups I'd been attending were in San Francisco, and I was meeting more UX designers from San Jose who had also made the journey north!

Things I'm hoping to accomplish by starting this group:

- Opportunity for peer review (ie: bring your portfolios or work and we'll take time giving you honest feedback)

- Opportunity for mentorship (maybe you are a mentor! maybe you are a mentee!)

- Place where you can bounce ideas around

- Place for potentially finding employers/talent

Upcoming events (4+)

UX Job Seeker's Support Group

Needs a location

Hello Wizards! On the hunt for your next UX role? Join other job seekers to talk about what's going well, ask your questions and share notes!

Job seeking can be dehumanizing so this is a chance to have feelings, support each other, make plans and get new ideas!

UX Small Group CoWork (Sunnyvale)

Needs a location

Hi all, welcome to the subtle return of the in-person Co-Work!

We're back at it with another live event this upcoming Thursday.

As a reminder, we do want to be mindful of the current situation occurring, so these in-person events will start out with a few small stealth launches.

We want to keep the numbers relatively lower as to be mindful of pandemic curtesy. I'll host a few of these myself maybe, once or twice a week, as they are already venues that I travel to regularly. Also, looking into making table reservations if this continues to be an ongoing event.

For those interested please see below and DM me for more details.

UX SOCIAL: PICNIC (Sunnyvale - Baylands)

Needs a location

Hey all, we're back again with a new social event! This time we are taking part in a social picnic. This is a relaxed laid back event for fellow UX members to get a chance to network in a new environment! Hey maybe bring a game or topic to break the ice.

Please note the following:

  1. Bring a blanket for your group to sit on, water, snacks, and a maybe game (quick and easy to play like Uno, Cards Against Humanity, Mouse Trap, Red Flag, Slap it etc...).

Amazon Blanket Link:

Conclusions: This event is for anyone to put themselves out there, meet some new faces, make friendly/professional connections, and to possibly find great people to add to your circle of friends and UX network. There has been a lot of positive feedback with this type of event. To set yourself up for success, come with an open mind, open eyes, and a friendly/warm demeanor. You make this what you want it to be. 🙂
