Whether you’re a user experience or web professional, you know it can be a challenge to keep your skills up-to-date, learn about new methods, and network with fellow web workers.
And it takes time to find interesting local events.
That’s why I publish a monthly calendar of user experience and web professionals events for southeast Michigan and northwest Ohio.
A free coworking day, privacy talk for startups, and a celebration of multicultural designers and organizations are a few of the events you’ll discover in my August 2018 calendar.
While I don’t attend every event on the calendar, I usually make it to one or two events each week. I’d love to meet you.
When you see me, stop by and say hi!

I ask that you only share events that have already posted their event info with date and time, thanks!
