Career Reboot from UX Designer to UX Developer

As a UX designer, I'm constantly hitting the wall with regard to not being able to "actually code what I want to do" and lacking the luxury of working in a large org where one can be a specialist I've resigned myself to learning to write code. I've scoured pretty much every book on learning C or iOS for dummies but I'm at the point where a formal education would probably be my best bet.1. Does KCC offer any continuing Ed courses?2. Should I just bite the bullet and go back for a CS degree?3.…See More

What is a User Experience Designer's Job Description here in Hawaii?

I had the luxury of being able to hire interaction designers, visual designers, prototypers, icon designers, illustrators, sound designers etc. when I was at Microsoft but my feeling is that here in Hawaii a "UX Designer" needs to be a jack of all trades... true? Typically, my role at Microsoft was to create a set of wireframes that then got translated and animated into a GUI that I directed but really was an orchestration of specialized talent.Does a UX Designer need to be a jack of all trades…See More

E komo mai Mark! Your user interface job at Microsoft sounds very interesting.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups such as Digital Artists and Renewable Energy.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. See you in the groups and forums!
