Hey everyone!

We had some great feedback and interaction after the ethics meetup in January, so we decided to organize a series of events dedicated to ethics in the tech industry. Yes, tethics :)

We'll organize one event each month, focused on a particular area of the industry where we will talk about the ethical side of things. Each meetup will have a 20-30 minutes exposition or intro and an hour long discussion in an open format, on the topic at hand.

For the second event we're focusing on design ethics and UX patterns. The two speakers will present a couple of so-called dark patterns, or pretty common patterns that are used by companies and products at the expense of the user. We welcome everyone to join the discussion and showcase their own examples of unethical design.

Meet the speakers:
