Hi Folks, 

Come join me at the June UX Boot Camp! We'll be designing a new interactive experience for public radio listeners and contributors. To sweeten the deal, I'd like to offer all IxDA members a special 15% discount. To cash in, just register here with the code "IxDAMember".

In this UX Boot Camp, participants will redesign how listeners interact with radio content. They’ll conduct this examination through a radio program you may have heard on your local public radio station: Marketplace Money.

American Public Media’s Marketplace Money is a weekly public radio program airing locally on KQED that looks at matters of personal finance with wit and wisdom. UX Boot Camp participants will use this show as a case study to transform the experience of radio by giving listeners and broadcasters new tools and interactive roles to explore a topic that touches everyone – money.

About the UX Boot Camp:

The UX Boot Camp is an opportunity for designers, developers, and project managers with some interaction design experience to take their skills to the next level. Guided by industry experts, you’ll gain the toolkit for solving interaction design challenges while working on a real-world project for a non-profit. Curious about what the UX Boot Camp is really like? Don't take our word for it – hear what the students had to say about it themselves.

Dates: June 11-14

Organized by: Cooper

Lead Teachers: Doug LeMoine and Kendra Shimmell

Location: Cooper Offices, 85 2nd St, 8th Floor, San Francisco, CA
