Are you working in, or interested in, User Experience (UX) and User Research?
UXMK is a group dedicated to discussing and learning about all things UX and related areas.
Every 2-3 months we will host at Meetup in Central Milton Keynes, with key speakers sharing their knowledge and hosting Q&A sessions on a whole host of UX topics and strategies; giving you an insight into how great user experiences are created.
This group is perfect for anyone working the UX field, looking to move into it, or interested in learning how they can apply it to their business.
If you’re interested in creating better user experiences through design and research, join this group and come along to the next Meetup.
UX MK is hosted by Snap Out (https://www.snapout.co.uk/) a user and market research consultancy, specialising in emerging technologies and markets, and New Socks Media (https://www.newsocksmedia.co.uk/), a design and development agency specialising in the strategy, design and development of software and applications.
