I decided to start this group because I see a need for more UX expertise in Arizona. The purpose of this group is to create a community that will support and learn from each others UX Experience in Web, Mobility and other platforms. We can all contribute, no matter, if you are seasoned professional or just starting out in the field.
As UX practitioners, we understand how our work connects user needs, business goals, and technology. Join us for a discussion that goes beyond those areas, as we talk about how our work can have outcomes that impact society and the environment.
We will look at some resources available, and participate in a brainstorming activity to help us to prepare for effective impact.
• eat, drink, and network
