We are User Experience professionals and students from Orange County, CA. and the local group of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA.org). Come to discuss about the industry in general, receive feedback from fellow peers, engage with speakers and fellow peers at mixer events. Very informal - Join us not just to learn, but to also spread your knowledge in this industry!
Irvine Ranch Water District - Community Meeting Room
UX Portfolio Review time again. At this Meetup, pending any special guest speakers, we will give first dibs to those who want to present something: a UX portfolio or project, a startup (at any stage), a tech, coding or web project, etc. Sell yours skills to stir up some side business or just get some valuable feedback on your project to get it moving forward, maybe something to add to your UX portfolio.
The second half of the Meetup will be a UX design process iteration of the current Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station mobile app design project. By the time we get through this UX Design Series we will have completely gone through the entire UX Design Process. Jump in any time but monthly continuity is super important. Learn something new or contribute to the project and show off your UX, Dev or Biz Dev skills and maybe stir up some freelance work if desired. The possibilities are endless! No prior UX Experience Needed! Spread the word.
I am also looking for TA's (Teaching Assistants) to help with the Meetup and design project. Again, something great to add to your resume.
• Add this as a portfolio project, add UX artifacts or resume items, get professional references.
• Learn the entire UX Design Process, sharpen and practice with individual UX skills, UX team experience.
• UX and Dev recognition, get your name on a published app if we can get a Dev to code it.
• Practice group presenting and public speaking. Not a requirement but plenty of opportunity to practice in this safe no-pressure environment.
• UX Portfolio, Startup or other project presentations
• Intro to UX Design - for Newbies
• UX Design Project
