I am now coming to the end of my PhD in HCI with an a11y and UX focus so I need to update my UX portfolio which I found a challenge i.e. asking myself questions like: What should I add? How should I sell myself appropriately? what should it look like? how long should it be? etc.
Over the last couple months I have put such questions to many professional UXer’s and attended a few events that attempted to answer said questions. However everyone seems to have different opinions/expectations of what makes a successful UX portfolio.
So I propose @UXsurgery an interactive workshop-based meetup for professional UXer’s to attempt to tackle these questions. The meetup will be structured as a creative workshop, taking place at City University London. It will begin with clear/concise presentations from strong UX people with experience creating successful UX portfolios, followed by a surgery where attendees can share and comment on each other portfolios (within a roundtable/creative/friendly setting) and also ask questions from the expert presenters. The aim is for attendees (including me) to leave the meetup feeling confident about the future directions of their UX portfolios.
My question to you is: would you be interested in attending this event? (please vote below):
If you have any questions please tweet me via twitter @UXsurgery.
