This group aims to be the point of contact between User Experience Professionals (product managers, designers, researchers, front end developers, technical writers, customer support professionals) and the developer community in the Bay Area.
The purpose of the group is to help the User Experience community talk to who needs us, help you network and find new gigs with some exciting startup that need some UX love and care.
Although the main focus will be web application and the related user experience problems and solutions, we're open to all kind of topics related to User Experience and Information Architecture (and the management of the UX-IA process).

In this interactive online training workshop, product management expert and author Dan Olsen will teach you how to improve your product-market fit and make your product more successful. Dan will share product management and Lean Startup advice from his best-selling book The Lean Product Playbook published by Wiley.
Dan will explain his Product-Market Pyramid framework, which is the foundation of his 6-step Lean Product Process for achieving product-market fit.
The Lean Product Process consists of six steps:
1. Determine your target customer
2. Identify underserved customer needs
3. Define your value proposition
4. Specify your Minimum Viable Product (MVP) feature set
5. Create your MVP prototype
6. Test your MVP with customers
Dan will also cover how to use analytics to optimize your product and business.
Unlike other books or talks, Dan's advice is very pragmatic and hands-on. You will walk away with tools and techniques you can apply as soon as you finish the workshop.
Dan will illustrate his product advice with real-world examples and case studies. Highly interactive group exercises let you build experience applying the concepts firsthand.
Workshop attendance is limited to ensure we have an intimate setting that fosters lots of interactive discussion.
