About the UX Edmonton Speaker Series
Starting in Fall 2021, UX Edmonton will be hosting an ongoing monthly speaker series. We will be welcoming local and international industry experts to share their thoughts, projects and research with the UX Edmonton community. Each event will be held virtually and will be a shorter length of around 45 minutes (no more Zoom fatigue please!), including time for a Q&A and group discussion.
While we’re all getting used to doing things differently, UX Edmonton looks forward to being able to host our usual in-person UX Camp event as soon as possible.
