About this event

Want to work on a UX project that creates real impact? Join us for this fast-paced UX Design Hackathon at General Assembly, and work on City of Melbourne's homelessness initiative for Melbourne Knowledge Week 2016.

Teams of designers, budding designers and entrepreneurial thinkers will spend a day redesigning an online experience. You will combine skills in user research, ideation and rapid prototyping, and mentors from the General Assembly community will be on-hand to help flesh out your ideas.

What can I expect on the day?

  1. Form teams, get briefed on the problem statement, and brainstorm a digital solution
  2. Pick up some lean UX techniques from our mentors
  3. Put your new-found UX skills into practice and design a lo-fi prototype
  4. Demo your prototype and present your recommendations to City of Melbourne, for the chance to win prizes

The challenge

The UX challenge will be provided by City of Melbourne, and will involve redesigning an online experience for the homeless community. How can people who want to access support services find the ones that are open and closest to them easily?

Who should attend?

You! Come along if you’re excited about problem-solving, you’re a motivated, sharp, creative technologist who believes that design can be a tool for positive change in the community. No experience necessary. Come with our without a team.

Let’s Keep You Updated
