If you plan on attending please RSVP.

Join us for a join meeting with the Dallas UXPA group to celebrate World Usability Day. This year's theme is Engagement.

You have probably seen alot of UX Engagement Models like the Five Planes of User Experience, UX Pyramids, UX Funnels, UX Honeycombs, and so on.

All of these UX Models talk about the work that UX Designers perform, which is great. And....it is not enough!

For this year's World Usability Day, we will break into teams of 5 or 6 people. We will work as teams to talk about how UX Designers can engage with other parts of the business.

It will be a highly-interactive, highly-engaging session. Each team will create a quick persona, discuss how this person can engage with UX, how UX can engage this person, and how we can work together.

Ready, set, engage! <said in a Captain Picard voice>

Grunt.js and Node.js has quickly become a mainstay for UX designers working in front-end development. You don’t have to spend weeks or even months learning Grunt.js to optimize your workflow. With a little thought and creativity you can use it to make complex every day tasks trivial. From compressing your less or sass to ftp’ing your files to server. Grunt.js can do all of this and more. In this quick walk through we are going to give you an overview of the Grunt.js framework and how it works with Node.js. Don’t worry this will not go into the major technicalities of theses frameworks. Our focus is on getting stuff done.
