Event Description

This month's topic is: User Experience and Privacy Software: An Interactive Workshop

Join us to make privacy software better. We believe that privacy software should be usable for the general public, and to start the effort, we need your help! 

The goal of User Experience (UX) it is to make products as usable as possible for people. In this workshop, you'll learn about UX, download privacy software, and learn how to critically analyze the user experience to make it better. We hope to file some bug reports/feature requests to projects, and make a positive impact on their usability!  

This is your chance to get a sneak-peek of an Open Source Bridge talk and meet other folks who will be attending Open Source Bridge.

This session will be lead by Jen Davidson, a Human-Computer Interaction PhD candidate from Oregon State University, and Sean McGregor, founder of The Privly Foundation and Machine Learning PhD student from Oregon State University. 

What should I bring?

  • A willingness to learn or to teach
  • A laptop
  • (optional) A current news story that you want to discuss with the group related to privacy/security/surveillance/censorship
  • Flux accepts donations so consider bringing a few bucks to show your appreciation for their support of this and future events.
