"The Long and Winding Road into UX" - Breaking into UX

Thursday, August 17, 2017 - 18:00
UX Community


There seem to be more UX schools and courses than they are Byron Burger joints in London at the moment. With a plethora of courses, a buoyant and saturated market where experience is key - how does one break into UX?

Well if you want to hear from someone who has broken into UX, someone who assists people in breaking into UX and someone who employs people in sometimes their first gig in UX then this is the event for you.

The first part of the event will be a panel discussion and the second half we hear from Oliver Breuer from HUGE Agency, who will be introducing the Huge Schools programme, how it started, how its all going and what they can offer to future candidates aiming to break into UX!
