Experience the UX London vibe with the UK UPA User Experience Clinic
What's the UX Clinic?
If you haven't managed to secure a ticket to UX London, the UX Clinic is your opportunity to meet and throw questions at Kate Rutter, Kim Goodwin, Russ Unger, Todd Zaki Warfel and Nate Bolt.
All five of them are speaking at Clearleft's conference, and have graciously agreed to take part in our panel, providing their unique perspectives to issues posed by you.
How does it work?
Ask a question, specifically for one of the speakers, or all of them. You can do so on the night, but it would be great if you submit them up-front:
- email email@example.com with "UX London" in the subject.
- tweet at @UKUPA using the hash tag "#UXLondon"
Where is it?
What does it cost?
As the UPA won't be providing food or drinks, this event is now free for all!
