We are trying to foster and build the Voice UX community of the New York area! It's an opportunity for UX designers and product folks working on voice interfaces to meet and learn from each other.
Are you working on design around voice? Are you having a hard time finding a great place to ask questions or share new ideas? We are too. So we've decided to create this Voice UX meetup to empower and shine a light on the advancements being made in the conversation design space.
Food, snacks, and drinks will be offered!
Can't make it? We will post the link to the live stream right before the event.
