The UX Notebook’s 2017 Black Friday + Cyber Monday Deals for the UX Community
After the success of the UX Notebook’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide, I thought it would be awesome to do a special compilation of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals specific to User Experience including products and services related to all things UX and product development.
I will try to update this as I hear about more awesome deals, but I will actually be on a flight to Australia (speaking at StartCon) so check back frequently to see if I’ve been able to add new finds.
And if you have a deal to offer, please fill out this Google Form (though submissions after Nov 22 may not get included, again due to my travel).
Yes .. some of these are affiliate links which means I may get a small kick back or credit if you sign up with my link.
🙌 Please share to help spread the word to your fellow user experience and product development friends.
