In San Francisco, Cascade SF holds a monthly meet up called UX Night, an event in which there are two hours of speed design mentoring and presentations. This week, I had the opportunity to attend and speak. It was a pretty great event!
Speed Design Mentoring
When I walked in, I was very impressed. I saw a huge room full of an energetic crowd. At many tables throughout the space, there were attendees meeting 1-on-1 with design mentors. It was speed mentoring, so everyone had a time slot they signed up for to meet. Everyone seemed very talented and passionate. I saw some people getting feedback on their projects, and some just having a conversation. It looked pretty fun.
After the mentoring sessions were over, it was my turn to present. I spoke about the work my Design Systems team is doing at Salesforce UX. I was excited to have many conversations afterwards about what other people are doing in this space.
