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 night of user experience case studies, WordPress Q & A, and a free coworking day are a few of the events you’ll discover in my July 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!

July Happy Hour at Dominick’s
You’re invited to join the Ladies That UX Detroit group for their happy hour. Meet new ladies working in the UX field and catch up with your UX colleagues and friends.
It’s impossible to include every event happening in our area. If you know of any southeast Michigan or northwest Detroit events not on the list, share them in the comments.
I ask that you only share events that have already posted their event info with date and time, thanks!
