Topic: A Web for Everyone - Designing Accessible Experiences
Location: PixelMEDIA, Portsmouth, NH
Welcome to the New Hampshire UXPA
The New Hampshire Chapter of the User Experience Professionals' Association (UXPA) provides networking and professional development opportunities for usability professionals, information architects, interaction designers, and other user experience professionals and students in the Seacoast and Southern NH regions. Our mission is to foster the growth of the local usability community and to provide an environment for members to exchange information on tips, tools, methodologies, and technologies related to usability.
NH UXPA meets every month in various locations around the Seacoast and Southern NH regions. We work hard to rotate event locations to try and make it possible for all members to attend a meeting. Our meetings include invited speakers, group discussions, workshops, demonstrations, local studio tours, and social gatherings. NH UXPA meetings and events are ALWAYS open to anyone who is interested in attending. Membership to the UPA is NOT required.
Joining our mailing list ensures you will receive timely information and reminders of our events and activities. This mailing list is also the best way to communicate with other NH UXPA members. We invite all group members to post their experiences, challenges, job opportunities, and other UX related conversation to the group.
In March 2009, we tried a “Design Slam” format to our meeting where attendees teamed up to help solve the design problems of a local not-for-profit.
