UXCB16 is this Saturday!
Can you believe it's almost here? UX Camp Brighton 2016 is only a few days away!
After unprecedented interest and a change of venue, we have now sold over 200 tickets! With your help this is going to be the biggest and best UX Camp Brighton ever. We can't wait to see you on Saturday at the Central Campus of City College Brighton & Hove on Pelham Street for Registration from 9.30am.
We have attendees coming from all over the UK and also from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Republic of Ireland - even the United States. In no particular order, we have UX designers, art directors, teachers, lecturers, students, developers, data analysts, UX researchers, product people, content strategists and writers, information architects, managing directors and customer experience designers. We know we'll all make sure everyone feels welcome on the day.
Don't forget, your entry ticket gets you a free breakfast (coffee, pastries and fruit), lunch and tea and coffee on the day. This year we've tried to source all our suppliers from ethical backgrounds:
The coffee and tea service will be provided by the Professional Barista Apprenticeship in Speciality Coffee - the first coffee apprenticeship in the UK. The scheme, run by One Church Brighton, links unemployed young people with mentorship and coffee jobs through high-level training. For UX Camp Brighton, trainees will be making three different filter coffees and a selection of teas designed to be both simple and super tasty.
Lunch is provided by The Real Junk Food Project Brighton, which is part of the Real Junk Food Project network. It is a national and international movement of cafes, projects and pop-ups with one core objective: To intercept food waste destined for land fill and use it to feed people who need it.
If you are running a host session and need to project anything, all projectors have a VGA connection. We'll have a few adaptors on the day but if you want to bring your own just in case, that's good too! Also, don't forget to fully charge your devices and bring chargers!
At the end of the day we'll be running the annual UX Quiz, which will be accompanied by free booze and snacks, plus great prizes donated by our quiz sponsors.
After that, the Party starts from around 5pm until late, in a private room at the nearby Eagle pub with some more free booze and food!
See you on Saturday!
