What an amazing experience! We just completed another two incredible days of insights, learning, and conversations at Front Salt Lake City 2017. Thanks for joining us — especially those that traveled so far (650 UX designers, product managers, analysts, researchers, developers, and leaders, from 29 states and 4 countries). Inside that beautiful hall and outside in the warm sunshine, it was an absolute pleasure to be with you.

We hope you noticed that this is a different kind of conference. We hope that that difference resonates with you. We hope that you returned home with new ideas, friendships, and opportunities. We hope that you take this knowledge and energy back to your teams and are able to affect positive change and progress.

This is an amazing time for designers, product managers, and anyone involved in innovation and technology. There is so much opportunity for us to take and mold into killer products and experiences. Let’s use these resources and our talents to make the lives of those around the world better.

It’s always sad to see it come to an end. Waiting another year to see you again is a long time. We encourage you to continue these great conversations in Slack, Twitter, LinkedIn, at local meetups, and to join us for the UX & Product Management Bootcamp in January.

UX & Product Management Bootcamp

We hope you’ll join us at the Front. We invite you to become part of this growing community of talented product managers, designers, researchers, and leaders. You don’t have to wait an entire year though. We’re excited to announce that our next UX & Product Management Bootcamp will be held 4–5 January 2018 at the Utah Olympic Venue in Park City, Utah.

Join us in the majestic mountains of Utah for an intimate, one-of-a-kind UX and Product Management training experience. Select 5 half and quarter-day workshops, for 2 intense days of learning and practice. No passive education here. This isn’t for the faint of heart. We’ll be working together, at 7,000 feet and atop the greatest snow on earth, in small groups of six, where you’ll be expected to collaborate and engage.

Each workshop will be limited to 48 students and taught by internationally recognized industry leaders and some of tech’s most skilled practitioners. Breakfast and lunch are provided each day. And yeah, we certainly expect that you’ll stay an extra day — or two — for some time on the slopes.

Reserve your seat now!
