The User Experience Professionals’ Association supports usability and UX specialists from all aspects of human-centred design, and the broad family of disciplines that create the user experience in promoting the design and development of usable products.
UK events run monthly, it’s a great place to meet friendly like-minded people. I have been to a few events now and I find them both useful and very inspirational. All speakers have a vast amount of both experience and knowledge. Speakers share valuable information about UX techniques and methodologies. I always leave the events feeling both inspired and completely out of my depth, however this isn’t disheartening, it simply motivates me to keep learning and developing my skills.
