It’s alive! It’s alive!
For a while now I’ve been preparing a forum platform on which to launch a new UX Mastery community, and it’s ready to go!
As a professional community manager with 10 years experience working in forums, UX Mastery recently brought me onto the team with a view to setting up and managing a new community focussed around an interest in (funnily enough) UX.
With some really experienced members already on-board (Lis Hubert, Donna Spencer and Patrick Neeman, to name a few) there will be plenty of interesting conversations to take part in and knowledgeable people to bounce ideas off.
There are many reasons for joining an online community. You might be looking for help on a project. Perhaps you’d like to find a mentor or someone to collaborate on a project with. Maybe you are looking for advice on putting together a portfolio or you’d just like to find a group of peers to network with. Whatever your motivation, and regardless of your experience, we’ll make sure we hook you up with the right people.
If there is one thing that I’ve learned about the UX community in the short time that I have been working in it, it is that it’s rich and diverse. Practitioners have come to their roles from such a wide range of angles that everyone has a different and interesting story. What is your interest in UX? How did you get started? Did anyone play a fundamental role in helping you get there? We’re collecting UX Stories and we’d love to hear yours.
While we understand that participating in yet another online community may feel like it could become a big time suck, we’re really passionate about making the UX Mastery community forums something special. We’d love for you to be a part of that.
Welcome to the UX Mastery family.
