What we’re about
Edinburgh UX meetup invites UX people of all flavours to a monthly meeting of minds – a place to share ideas and indulge in idle banter. Each meeting has general theme - just a suggestion to get things rolling, conversationally speaking anything goes! Whether you be designer, developer, guerrilla, enthusiast or just passing by, come join us on the last Monday of the month.
