What is it all about?

UXcampNL is an unconference born from the desire to bring together the industry and academic communities to share knowledge in an open environment. It is an intense one day event with presentations, discussions, workshops and demos in the field of User Experience and related disciplines.

Eindhoven as the technology, design and innovation hotspot creates an ideal environment to connect researchers, practitioners and students with each other and with companies.

Active participation

Unlike a traditional conference, UXcamp is shaped by the attendees themselves. Anyone willing to contribute and learn is welcome to join and give a talk, workshop or start a discussion. Slots are 45 minutes, in case of a presentation we advise to leave 15 minutes for Q&A.

Our theme for this year:
"Bridging the gap"

Workshops

11:00 – 12:45 Breaking the Fairy Tale of Wireframes (2 parts)

Wireframing is used abundantly in the early phases of the design cycle. However, its usefulness knows boundaries. In this hands-on workshop, we will show you the pros and cons and suggest an alternative technique.

13:45 – 14:30 A Grand Experiment (of 50 minutes ;) ) in Multidisciplinary Teamwork

At StudyPortals we work in multidisciplinary teams on daily basis. During this workshop our aim is to transfer as many of the lessons we’ve learned as possible through an exciting group challenge. For the best possible effect, we need an as mixed group as possible.

Thijs Putman & Lenka Praxova
CTO & UX Designer at StudyPortals



14:45 – 15:30 Sketching

Sketching is quite easy once you get to know some easy tips & tricks. It is mostly valuable as a great way of visual storytelling for everyone who involved in the design process. Learn the basics in this hands-on workshop!
