Hi, I’m currently based in Hawaii where the UX community is very small. Therefore, the opportunity to get involved in UX is very limited.
I have been seriously considering a career change into UX (and relocating when I’m ready to make the jump) but would first like to connect with more people in the field in order to get more insight.
I will be going on a trip to San Francisco mid-February and would like to take advantage of that time to connect with the UX community in the Bay Area. So far, I am planning to attend a meetup, but would also like the opportunity to shadow a UX team from either a company or an agency (or bot). I am also happy to take people out to coffee.
Any suggestions on how I can plan my trip so that I maximize my time there?
Any tips on organizations, agencies, companies I should reach out to?
