The Origins of PRODDUCT:

I'm a young product designer of 3 years, currently running a funded startup at 500 Startups in SF. I'm simply into UX and learning about people in order to make amazing products. I got other product people together once I realized there wasn't a quality club of us out there somewhere to meet with each other. This is for us, the sincere product designers.
