    PDXAUX Happy Hour

    Help us close out the year at the patio of Green Dragon for happy hour to network and discuss accessibility and the user experience!

    The Portland Accessibility and User Experience Meetup will address how to incorporate accessibility and universal design principles into project planning, user research, and UX evaluation. The purpose of this meet up is to host an ongoing conversation about how to design and build tools that are inclusive to the greatest number of people possible - meaning those with and without (dis)abilities.

    We intend to discuss topics related to accessibility policy and regulations, incorporating people with disabilities into an iterative project lifecycle, how to conduct UX research with diverse populations, automated and manual tools for UX evaluation, building accessibility into company policy and practice, and much more!

    A UX Universal and Inclusive Design meet up is timely as we see the Dept. of Justice handing down ruling after ruling requiring digital products and services to be accessible (i.e. Netflix, Redbox, Target, etc...). This meet up will provide a much needed resource for Portland based companies and individuals interested in accessibility, universal design, and inclusive design.

    Startup Happy Hour!

    Startup Happy Hour! is a friendly, informal gathering of like-minded people from the Portland Startup Scene.

    There are no pitches, no nametags, and no agenda – just hanging out, making new connections, and enjoying each other's company.

    We're meeting this Friday at 4:30 PM at the Green Dragon.

    When you arrive, please gather in the area by the back bar. We request that guests mingle around freely rather than clustering around a single table - this makes it easier for everyone to meet each other and network effectively.

    You are welcome to arrive and leave at leisure -- the start and end times function within a fluid continuum. That said, we find that the event works best when most people arrive within the first 15 minutes or so.

    Hope to see you there!

    Please RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/StartupHappyHour/events/224904021/

    UserOnboard Ice Cream Party!!

    Hello friends!

    Let's celebrate the glorious Portland summertime together by eating ice cream in a park!

    I just reviewed Eventbrite's onboarding experience (http://www.useronboard.com/how-eventbrite-onboards-new-users/) and in order to do so, had to come up with an event to post.

    Ice cream and beer in in the sun sounded like a great idea, and when the review was published, a lot of people actually RSVPed. So it's on!

    UserOnboard will provide the ice cream and probably some beer and we will all supply the good times with chill people.
