THE FORMAT Bring your deliverables to either get useful, implementable feedback or to show unique solutions to potentially common design problems. Drafts/incomplete work is welcome!
We'll have a round-table discussion where one person can tell the larger group they need help with a design problem, or they can share a unique solution that's worked well for them in the past.
Questions and dialogue from the rest of the group are expected and encouraged--this isn't meant to be one person presenting to an audience!
If you don't want to bring anything to show, you're more than welcome to attend and contribute to the discussion.
We'll decide later where to take the discussions after the workshop is officially over at 8:30 p.m. WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE? As always, all veteran, novice, or prospective user experience designers, information architects, web developers, content strategists, graphic designers, etc. are encouraged to share deliverables or just attend.
Paper deliverables are perfectly acceptable, and we'll also have wireless internet, a projector and a screen available for showing work. Feel free to bring deliverables from old jobs, prototypes, pet projects, or anything else you need help with or think could benefit others.
If you plan to share, please indicate what you're bringing (by posting a comment on uxshowandtell.com) so others can bring their own potentially relevant examples.
