Details

Have you ever wondered what others in our UX community are working on? What challenges they've wrestled with, and what accomplishments they're proud of? Join us this month to satisfy that curiosity while connecting with your peers in the region.

Event Format

We'll schedule a series of short presentations followed by round-table discussions with the whole group. Presenters will show examples of their work with the purpose of either:

• receiving useful feedback, or

• sharing effective solutions they've created to design problems.

If you don't want to bring anything to show, you're more than welcome to attend and contribute to the discussion.

Presenters

Presentation slots are open to anyone who RSVPs. We may not have time to accept all applications, so please tell us a bit about what you have in mind when you RSVP (Meetup will provide a place for you to do this). We'll then select presentations to ensure a good variety that sparks interesting discussions.

Note that people of all experience levels are invited to participate: you don't have to be a seasoned expert to show off what you're working on!

What to Present

Feel free to show deliverables from your current work, old jobs, side projects, or anything else you need help with or think could benefit others.

Drafts, work in progress, and finished products are welcome from across the UX spectrum from research through design in all its flavours. All we ask is that you have something tangible to show and that it will be of general interest (in other words, your demo won't require knowledge of a niche domain).

Examples include but aren't limited to:

• Personas, scenarios, and other research artifacts

• Concept and mental model diagrams

• Journey maps

• Wireframes

• Visual comps

• Prototypes

• Finished products

If you have paper artifacts, we suggest capturing digital versions (even photos) so they can be displayed on a projector for all to see. Wireless internet will be available.
