If you’ve wanted an excuse to explore new interaction paradigms and stay ahead of the design pack, this is your chance.

What is the UX Boot Camp?
UX Boot Camp is an opportunity for designers, developers, and project managers with some interaction design experience to take their skills to the next level. Over the course of four days, you’ll take a deep dive into Cooper’s goal-directed design approach and apply what you learn to a real-world problem. You’ll take your ideas from inception to design with the mentorship of our best teachers and active feedback from a real non-profit client.
Curious about what the UX Boot Camp is really like? Don’t take our word for it – hear what the students had to say about it themselves.
