About Calgary UX
Calgary UX is home to a growing community of user experience professionals and aims to bring those professionals together on a regular basis for conversation and camaraderie.
Calgary UX was originally formed back in 2006 when two (then) local practitioners, Scott Weisbrod and Dave Robertson, decided to create a group where people in user experience could connect online. In 2008, a group of local practitioner’s (Scott Baldwin, Scott Anderson and Dave Robertson) evolved and expanded the group’s focus beyond an online community and started planning more frequent events for members to meet in person. In early 2009 Chad Fournier joined the planning committee and shortly thereafter the UX Book Club was added. Since then, the organizing committee has has several different volunteers and organizers. The current list of organizers is listed below.
