About This Class

Whether you’re looking to expand your tech skills, or thinking about starting a career change into UX, this class is the perfect starting point.

Join us for a free, 2-hour class to get hands-on practice with the basics of UX Design. We’ll answer questions like, "What’s the difference between UX and UI?" and "What is it like to actually be a UX Designer?" Then, you’ll go through the full UX design process and along the way get hands-on experience with key UX Design skills like user research and sketching.

Bonus: there will be time at the end for live Q&A with the instructor.

See you in class.

  • Note: your mic and camera will be off for the duration of the class.
  • A recording will be shared via email after filling out our in-class survey.
