Keeping up with the latest trends and industry developments is a big part of my job as a UX writer working on technical projects such as platform enhancements and machine learning features. In between work, learning new technical subjects, and other adulting tasks, I find myself getting burned out pretty quickly. If only there were a place for me to meet folks, gain industry knowledge, and learn from other people’s experiences…
Wait a minute. A conference is a great place to do that!
Upon researching, I found that there are a lot of interesting conferences happening next year. To help me (and you!) decide which conferences to attend, I’ve compiled a list of conferences that I want to share with you.
Who is this list for?
This list is for content designers, UX writers, and content strategists interested in learning more about UX, research, design thinking, information architecture (IA), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), system design, and human-computer interaction (HCI).
