Build things that people connect with, are intuitive and are a pleasure to use. UI and UX design are key to bring together business requirements, form and function.

We will cover a little intro of UI/UX concepts and popular tools of the trade. We will build out a prototype together using Figma, a free, but very powerful and full-featured design tool similar to Sketch and Illustrator. This will be hands on and we will likely work on the code to bring this UI to life in future meetups. We will also pass along with some great resources and next steps to expand your knowledge.

Our special guest speaker is Gary Meyer, a passionate creative professional working in product design, UI, UX, Industrial Design, and photography. Gary has experience working with human factors, user interaction and user experience, product research and development, rapid prototyping, and rendering both by hand and with a variety of software applications.
