CalgaryUX is joining up with Pixels and Pints for their next get-together on Tuesday, April 9.
Some CalgaryUX folks are already regulars at Pixel and Pints but if you haven’t been to one before, Pixels is a monthly intermingling of Calgary’s designers, writers, analysts, and developers… and everything in-between.
It’s a pretty casual group: just grab a drink, have a chat, listen to some announcements, and make some new connections!
You can arrive any time during the evening, but things get started at 5:30pm at the Rose and Crown Pub in Beltline (1503 4 St. SW). We’ll have a reserved section at the back.
