Where Does Someone New to the UX/UI Industry Learn?

Hello IXDA Forums I am a recent graduate of Illustration at Sheridan College in Ontario Canada. I am interested in the field of user experience and user interface design. It seems to combine art and technology really well. I am not sure where to begin my journey though. Where does one learn the software, theory and get the experience necessary to start a career? Specifically in Ontario, but Distance Education could work as well. Thanks everyone! Jonathan Barker

Looking for a Mobile App UX/UI designer in South Florida to speak to my class.


I am teaching a mobile app graphic design class at Florida Atlantic University this semester. We would love to have someone with mobile app design experience come and talk to us about the design process, careers, and the mobile app industry. I am not sure we have any sort of budget for this yet, therefore I am reaching out to those already living/working in South Florida to volunteer to spend and evening with our class.

Please let me know if you are interested, or if you know someone that might be. Thank you!
