Calgary UX is honoured to partner with General Assembly to bring a new series of events. Join a conversation with Pushkar Patange, UX Lead Designer at Archiact.


Please, RSVP and complete the registration at General Assembly page. Thank you!



About the event:
Gaming appeals to people of all generations: 86% of Generation Z, 84% of millennials, and 80% of Generation X play video games on their gaming consoles, smartphones, and PCs at least once a week, if not every day. If current trends persist, gaming may entice more consumers away from watching streaming TV and movies.

Included in those trends are UX/UI design principles. The complexity of video game graphics has evolved exponentially. This evolution involves the integration of UX/UI design. Join us to discover if this field is meant for you, but most importantly, which components are here to stay in the world of VR.
