Tired of traveling to other cities for conferences? Bored by their traditional rigidity? Looking for an opportunity to present something cool you've been working on or thinking about?
You're in luck! UX Camp LA is coming to town June 4, 2011 at UCLA. An unconference in the vein of infocamp, UX Camp LA will be an opportunity to network with the Los Angeles design community, talk about projects, and get some coffee and lunch. All for $25.
Join us for a discussion of eye tracking technology: what it is, what
it's used for, how to do it, when to do it, and pros and cons of eye

case studies, and much more -- as well as all the mingling with other
local professionals that you expect from an LA UPA event.
