ModevUX Coming to McLean in May / RUXers Get a 15% Discount

We plan to write more soon about plans for RUX in 2014, but for now we’re just going to keep on posting about UX events we think you’ll find worthwhile. Along those lines, Richmond UX is one of the event sponsors for ModevUX 2014, which takes place May 19-20 in McLean, VA. As an event sponsor, RUX’s members are entitled to a 15% discount on registration using the discount code UX14RUX. (Apparently, the best pricing ends tomorrow, so get to it!)

What is ModevUX, you may ask? In their words (and some of mine…collaboration!):

modevUX 2014 - May 19-20 in McLean, VA

Now in its 3rd year, ModevUX is a 2-day conference, featuring more than 40 speakers—industry experts including Josh Clark, Lea Verou, Carolyn Chandler, Steven Hoober, and Sian Morson. (It just so happens that next month’s speaker, Jen Bergstrom, will be there too.)

There will be premium workshops and breakout sessions, where you can get your hands dirty, as well as industry case studies and insights from the main-stage talks and keynotes. Mingle, recruit, and network with hundreds of other UX professionals. ModevUX offers a superior conference experience and unbelievable content, at an unbeatable value. [Ed. Note: I haven’t been, so I can’t vouch for this claim.]
