Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah! MKEUX.com is live!
A bit of history
We (@yellowledbedder & @michaelseidel) have been mulling over the idea of starting a really informal UX group in Milwaukee for the past several months. Why? Because we we learn most when the walls of formality are smashed—when we can pop the tops on a few beers and let the ideas ping-pong.
That’s what mkeUX was born out of. A need to learn and hangout all at once.
What is mkeUX?
We’re a people in the Milwaukee, WI area who care about collaborating and sharing knowledge in order to create killer user experiences.
Our driving principal is that there are no experts. Everyone knows something. Or lots of things. Or can come up with an new take on things.
Our meetings are a place for Milwaukee’s UX community to swap ideas in order to grow our collective understanding of how to create soundly-built websites and apps that users get.
We really hope you’ll join us and contribute to make this thing more awesome than we alone could have imagined it being.
There’s a ton more I want to say about our philosophy, etc, but I know you don’t want to read it all in one blast! So keep your eyes open for upcoming posts.
We’ll dish it all, ya’ll.
In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions! The best way is to follow us on Twitter and send a DM. We have short attention spans.
