What is UXCamp?

An un-conference where UX professionals and enthusiasts can teach each other in an open, fun environment. Anyone who has something to say / demo / teach can pitch to the crowd. If the crowd approves, the pitcher gets a session and a time slot to host a session in.

At UXCAMP, there are no spectators. If you’re not presenting, you’re participating and learning actively. You participate by joining the hands-on workshops and discussions, entertaining the crowd, writing blog posts, sharing experiences on social media or demoing something cool.

What to Expect

200+ people sharing knowledge about design, design systems, UX, product design, UI design, strategy, and just about anything else.
