March Meetup Recap

This past Tuesday, Tulsa UX had their first Lightning Talk series of 2018.

Every six months the meetup switches formats from feature-length speakers to Lightning Talks. This has two purposes — First, it gives new speakers a chance to present without having to commit to a full keynote. Additionally, it provides the group with a diverse set of topics presented within a single meetup! As always — If you’d like to become more involved or present at a meetup, please contact us at hello@tulsaux.com!

Lightning Talks

“Lorem Ipsum Can Burn In Hell“ by Josh Rich

“Safari can’t do UX“ by David Svezhintsev

David — a freelance web designer and developer — presented a case about how iOS in Safari has some technical limitations that prevent users from creating very basic and expected UX elements on their web applications. See his full presentation here.
