The thing I love about Portland is that it’s usually got a little something for everyone. The thing that’s frustrating about Portland is that there are usually a bunch of awesome—and often overlapping—events to attend. Like this Wednesday, for instance. Where you’ll have to choose between hearing from awesome people talking about virtual reality user experience or equally awesome insights on product user experience.
As a young girl, Alysha Naples wanted to be an astronaut, a dinosaur or a Solid Gold dancer. Instead, she studied graphic design, moved to San Francisco (Method, Blurb and HP Labs) and became obsessed with interaction and experience. Until recently, she was Magic Leap’s Senior Director of User Experience and Interaction, a position which felt a lot like she’s was going back to kindergarten and getting a PhD at the same time.
The event will be held Wednesday, August 31, 2016 at Instrument. Doors open at 5:30PM. There is no cost to attend.

Expose UX is the web TV show where startups compete for prizes while getting feedback from user experience (UX) experts. It’s Shark Tank for UX design. Learn from the experts’ advice and improve your own product!
This one will be held Wednesday, August 31, 2016, at CENTRL Office. Tickets are free. If you’d like to purchase VIP access, you can hobnob with the participants and judges for $12.00.
