💥 UpLevel and PowerUp with top Ux & Design tips, insights, actionables, inspiring talks, events & more 🖖 Curated by @jdallcaps

46 Spreadsheets, 1800 entries, hundreds of coffees, mails, calls, and 1000s of whatsapp, sched, slack messages and tweets later—DesignUp 2017 Conference wrapped-up on Saturday 10th.
560 attendees in the 2nd edition, over 800 unique Designers who came to the conference and pre-events—all of it goes on to make it the largest (and youngest) Ux/Design-In-Tech conference in India. Though being the biggest is not our goal.
Our success comes from warm smiles, the audience engagement (we were trending at #3 on twitter), the animated discussions, and a room full of awake audience in the post-lunch sessions. And the discussion continues. We also announced the Designers Retreat - The DesignUp Reboot (more details below).
DesignUp had an ecclectic lineup of speakers—and in this edition I am joined by the wonderful Alysha Naples as co-curator—Alysha (AN) shares the links she mentioned in her talk. Will share more annotated links by other speakers over the next few weeks.
