About this event

This will be a highly interactive and collaborative workshop covering User Experience design. UX Design is prominent in the creation of any product including websites and mobile applications. We will introduce you to the principles and process of UX Design.

This workshop will include brainstorming sessions, group projects, and design prototyping. It will be taught with an emphasis on web, however, the principles can be applied to many fields of work.  We will start at 9, have lunch at 12:20, then wrap up by 3. There are no prerequisites for this workshop and a computer is not necessary, however you may find it useful. Come with an open mind and we'll teach you what you need to know to get started with design!

This workshop will be taught by Gwen Brinsmead, a UI/UX designer at Appcelerator, and Sheba Najmi, a Code for America Fellow and former UX Designer at Yahoo!. If you're interested in helping out as a teaching assistant, please let us know.

Thank you to Twilio for the great food and location.

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.
