What is UXCamp DC?
UXCamp DC is about bringing together the area’s foremost thinkers and practitioners: sharing the big ideas that inspire great user experience design on the web, on mobile, and in real life.
UXCamp DC is an ad-hoc unconference and is part of the larger BarCamp movement. The focus of this camp is user experience–online and offline. There is no set agenda until everyone gathers. Attendees are required to participate to some degree: either by leading a discussion, showing a demo, or by creating another type of collaborative session.
This event will be held on January 5, 2013 from 9 am – 5:45 pm at Goethe-Institut in Washington, DC.
