This month we're doing something new and interactive. UXDTN member Nadav Zohar will be running a collaborative workshop where your strategic thoughts will help him improve what he's working on. We can't tell you too much about it ahead of time because we don’t want you preparing or thinking too much about it before the meetup. We want you to come to the UXDTN meetup unbiased so Nadav can see your first reactions.
Nadav is gathering data on what kinds of decisions get made by design teams given a set of starting conditions. Because UXDTN members are a thoughtful group of people from a variety of disciplines and industries who make design decisions about technology, Nadav said you would be the perfect audience to provide that data. He'll describe the starting conditions, then break us into groups to play with the process, then we will have a chance to discuss it and the larger ideas it fits into. A side benefit is that you'll learn how your process differs from others in the breakout group!
Nadav will be collecting information at the workshop and reporting it in a lightning talk in August.
This should be an exciting new process for UXDTN members to take part in, and a way to make a positive contribution.
As usual our meeting will start at 5:30pm with refreshments and networking. At 6:00 we'll kickoff iwth announcements and introductions by our sponsors. Nadav will run his workshop until about 7:00 after which people are welcome to hang out and ask questions for a while until our space sponsors kick us out.
