In an absolutely epic Slack chat session, Heather Wydeven’s keyboard was on fire as she answered your questions about getting your user experience design career off the ground. We talked about UX internship, transitioning from other careers, important skills, moving abroad, expectations, and much much more.
Heather Wydeven made some big decisions and took some risks to get the career that she wanted. In 2013 she entered the UX field through an apprenticeship program and is passionate about mentoring new UXers into their career.
Here is your chance to pick her brains in order to further your own career.
Yesterday we were honoured to host Erin Hoffman-John (co-founder and Chief Designer at Sense of Wonder) in our Ask the UXperts Slack channel. Erin was inspiring and passionate as she led us through an exploration of our own hidden biases and made us think about how they inform our design decisions. If you didn’t make the session, make sure you read the transcript.
Join Erin Hoffman-John – an independent mobile developer of “smart fun” games – in a dedicated Slack channel to discuss game mechanics, design, ethics and making good choices.
We hope you can make this free session, but if you can’t, we’ll ask Erin questions on your behalf. Read on to find out how it all works.
One of the most popular topics of discussion at our UX Mastery community forums is training. The myriad of online courses (both free and paid), immersion programs, mentored programs, and full blown degrees makes the decision a difficult one.
We decided that the easiest way to help point you in the right direction is to pull together the information and opinions of community members that have taken some of these courses, so you can get it right from the horse’s mouth.
