This little online business that Matt and I started a couple of years ago is heading offline—but in a good way.
Don’t worry—uxmastery.com isn’t going anywhere. What I mean is that we have a ton of in-person UX training workshops and social gatherings in the pipeline.
It turns out that there’s a huge demand for in-person training on the topics of user experience, sketching, and innovation, as well as a need for people to meet face-to-face and chat about this stuff over a beer.
This year, in addition to our popular Introduction to UX Design workshop, we’ve expanded our offering to include other topics:
- UX Sketching: Supercharge Your Visual Thinking, an advanced version of the Sketchnoting 101 course, with a specific focus on pictorial problem-solving
- Inspiring Innovation, a full-day course on how to encourage collaboration and creativity in your workplace, and how to harness those ideas once they materialise.
If you missed out on a workshop last year, now’s your chance to reserve your seat, at early bird prices. And if you need to convince your boss that you should attend a UX Mastery workshop, we’ve prepared a PDF that you can show them:
We’re teaching in Melbourne, Sydney, Manila, and Hong Kong. Check out all of the dates for 2015 on our training page.
“Wherever possible I’ve tried to implement the UX principles you guys showed me … this, along with all your reading materials and the great resource of your site has been invaluable in learning the ropes on UX.”
“Great! Engaging, excitable, personable.”
“You engaged the group very well and helped to guide them through exciting but also challenging waters with just the right gentle touch. I noticed a lot of enthusiasm and energy amongst the groups, flowing over into the lunch breaks, which was great to see.”

We’ve also reinstated our UX Mastery meetup group in Melbourne. If you’re UX-curious, looking for specific guidance, or just want to connect with other UX designers and share a beer and a laugh, come along and get your questions answered. Details for the next two meetups are as follows:
- Meetup on Thurs, April 9, 2015: UX Portfolios + beer
- Meetup on Thurs, April 30, 2015: UX Sketching + beer
To stay in the loop, join our free group on meetup.com.
We hope to see you at the pub, or in class, soon!
