Oct 2 meetup

IMG_1291Our next (4th) Sunshine Coast tech community meetup will be Thursday October 2 at the Seaside Center in Sechelt, 7:00-9:00 PM register here.  No cost.  Registration just helps us know how many people are coming along.

Traditionally design hasbeen the last stage of innovation. The designers role was to come up with the attractive wrapper to increase brand awareness and make the product more desirable to consumers.

Now the design role has shifted from this late stage tactical involvement to upfront strategic lead. Design is recognized as being key to tech innovation. Steve Jobs knew this. Organizations like ideo.org are leading this today.

At tech meetup #4 we will explore with a panel of designers how design thinking, human centered design, UX/UI design, rapid prototyping can add real value for each of us working in the digital space (writers, developers, managers, designers, hardware, infrastructure, …).
