Join us on the eve of Valentine's Day to hear from a panel of seasoned developers sharing insights, tips, and stories about working with designers. The panel will discuss their experiences working with Design to create great user experiences… without killing each other!
After the panel we'll have an opportunity for audience Q&A (pssst... designers, this is the time to ask the developers all those burning questions and hear what they really think!) Then stick around for some cheerful socializing, and get to know your fellow UX and AIGA Seattle community members one-on-one.
5:30pm Doors open, snacks will be served, cash bar.
