What we're about

UX Speakeasy is a 501c3 nonprofit group for people in the San Diego User Experience (UX) Community, and is the local chapter of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) (http://www.ixda.org/). Interaction Designers, UX professionals, HFEs, User Researchers, Content Strategists, IAs, Visual Designers, Usability Professionals, Experience Strategists - you'll find them all here plus a few more. If you are a user experience professional and are interested in connecting and strengthening the local San Diego UX community, welcome to UX Speakeasy.

Join us each month for our monthly meetups which are informal events that allows members of our UX community to connect and share with each other. There is usually a short discussion, activity or talk on varied topics but the main focus of the monthly meetup is generally social; networking, sharing ideas, connecting.

In addition to the monthly meetup, look for us to host separate educational events throughout the year like the UX Speakeasy Conference, Sketchcamp SD and MOBd Up (Mobile Design Uprising), as well as IxDA sponsored events.
