Register on Eventbrite

OVERVIEW

Google defines User Experience (UX) as “the overall experience of a person using a product such as a website…especially in terms of how easy or pleasing it is to use”.

– Is your website easy and pleasing to use? 

– Are you visitors able to accomplish tasks with ease and leave with a positive experience? 

– What are your options for improving website UX? 

This event will help answer those questions.

We will discuss 3 elements of website UX:

• What makes for good website user experience, including mobile web

• How to evaluate your website UX and do basic user research

• What changes you can make to your website to enhance usability and UX

AGENDA & AUDIENCE

We begin at 6:30 with wine, beer, soda and light appetizers. Presentation at 7pm.

This event is focused on people who manage and build websites, as well as those interested in user experience.
