Come join us at a monthly nexUX meetup! We gather local UX researchers, students and professionals to learn about current and emerging UX issues. Our meetups are not "sit back and listen" events, but a chance meet a diverse and cross disciplinary group of people and think about the issues facing UX, technology, and design. Coffee and snacks perk us up.
Meetups happen monthly September through May in Hunt Library's Duke Energy Hall at 3pm, usually on Fridays. You can find our latest upcoming and recent meetups as well as details on our regular venue below.
Attendance is free, but please register to help us plan the event.
Technology is transforming public dialog in alarming and unintended ways — a stark contrast to the optimism of the early web. What would technology supporting a healthy dialog look like?
Friday, Sept 29: Jason Broughton, VP of UX at LexisNexis — Revitalizing UX at Lexis Nexis
Friday, November 17th: Steven King, professor of Interactive and Multimedia at UNC's School of Media and Journalism — Journalism & UX
Friday, December 8th: Jay Dawkins, CEO of Cityzen — Emerging technologies for public storytelling
How is storytelling changing, as the technologies for delivering stories change so rapidly? How should technology change, as it becomes so deeply intertwined with storytelling?
How does a successful knowledge company built on software products pivot toward a more agile, responsive, and user-centered way of working?
In many applications of contemporary technology, emotional impacts on users can be just as important as functional outcomes. How can we reliably measure and understand human emotional states in interactive systems?
Whether you are part of a startup, or an employee in a large enterprise company, the best products will be the result of effective collaboration. This talk will share real-life experiences and techniques for collaboration with the goal of inspiring how you approach interactions with peers and coworkers.
We all have stories to tell, and data makes any story more engaging. At this talk, we will look at good and bad data visualizations, examine how they simplify information, and explore how incorporating the good ones can clarify and strengthen stories.
