What user experience (UX) and web professional events are happening this month in southeast Michigan?
Find out in my monthly events calendar!
If you work on the web, you know it’s 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 our area.
I include events open to the public in my calendar; no need to join a group to find out what their event is about.
In this month’s calendar, you’ll find an accessibility in WordPress discussion, mobility design gathering with networking, learn about the UX effect for the automobile and mobility industry, and more.
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!
