The UX Review Spring Roundup
2017 has been a busy year here at The UX Review and we are only in May!
So much so I thought it was worth doing a quick roundup and telling you more about what’s been happening and where we plan to go next. Here are some highlights:
UX Mentorship Program by UXR
Our free UX mentorship program went from 30 to 125 members in little over 2 weeks since we relaunched and moved it over to Slack. The response has been incredible and slightly unexpected.
Our team of mentors are helping more people than ever get ready for their first UX role and learn how to become better UX designers and User Researchers.
If you would like to join them you can apply here and we’ll get you set up.
We would also like to welcome our newest mentor on board Lara Marsh who joins us with over 10 years experience in the industry.
Mobile UX London
We have partnered with Mobile UX London (MUXL) to give our readers a very special discount of 10% off tickets using our code uxrltd. Just enter it during checkout.
You can learn more about the event and get tickets by visiting them here.
The conference will be covering topics like:
- Connected Cars
- Internet of things (IOT)
Act fast as spaces are limited!
Behind the scenes
We have been nipping and tucking in all the right places meaning the site should now load faster and use less of your precious data.
We want to be accessible to as many of you as possible and this is just the first part of that process.
We have one at last 🙂 So you can now follow us there at https://www.facebook.com/TheUXReview/ to get the latest posts.
Coming later in 2017
As UX designers a big part of our job is facilitating design discussions with our teams. That’s why I created MeetMate to help you run these meetings as effectively as possible.
I am currently working on some great new features for the app including Apple Watch support (hooray!).
If you haven’t already you can grab it over on the App Store at a special sale price.
- We are working on some exciting new things to expand the UX Mentorship Program
- As always more great articles on everything to do with user experience, service design and everything in between
Here’s to a great 2017!
