For the first UX Design for Startups meetup, we challenge you to a hands-on, interactive and intense experience of Design Thinking, to understand the bigger frameworks behind UX. RSVP here to save your front row spot on December 5, starting at 18:30!
Disclaimer! Please join us only if you’re sure you can make it in time and stay until the end of our workshop, as this is how the workshop works. Design Thinking implies some basic rules that we all must follow, otherwise, it wouldn’t be design thinking 🙂
Why UX and Design Thinking?
Design thinking is an iterative process which seeks to understand users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and identify alternative solutions, which were unseen beforehand. It is a solution-based approach to problem-solving, while being both a framework and a set of tools.
This framework influences the way we do UX, because user experience starts with design thinking. “UX and design thinking seem like two sides of the same coin; the first is the more tactical and build-oriented manifestation, whereas the latter is the more strategic and conceptual manifestation.” (https://interactions.acm.org/archive/view/september-october-2015/design-thinking-and-ux)
What we’ll do
In max. 2 hours, you will learn the process and reshape a digital product with a focus on humans and their needs, through prototyping and testing.
Our guide will be Tudor Juravlea, who is the Design Thinking Society co-founder and an experienced facilitator of design thinking processes for more than 5 years. Tudor applied both User Experience Design and Service Design on real projects in telecom, banking and energy. He also has NGO and startup experience.
Tudor loves tech and creators, but knows that while software isn’t built to last long term, solutions are. Tech can only be disruptive when users are at its center. So the biggest disease for any business is to forget about its clients. Tudor believes that’s also the biggest risk for humanity: to forget what makes us human in the first place – childlike curiosity, creativity and collaboration.

Join this Blockchain Romania meetup, to see what’s the role of trading in the crypto ecosystem. RSVP here to save your front row spot on December 4, starting at 18:30!
About the event
Trading is a perennial hot topic in crypto. Even since the first Bitcoin trade (10000 BTC for 2 pizza) people have been trying to figure out the market mechanisms that are behind any particular coin price. For this edition of our meetup, we’ll try to figure out
– what are the particularities or similarities between crypto markets and other “traditional” currencies and/or commodities?
– are there instruments (such as Technical Analysis) that can give insights into why prices are behaving in a particular way?
– is there anything that affects price except supply and demand?
– are the current price setting environments (i.e. exchanges) transparent enough in order to make the available tools efficient or are there nefarious activities that affect the said prices?

Regardless of the species, parents need to take care of their young ones, make sure they are not exposed to high-risk situations, and can always cry for help. It is the basic need for safety. Traditionally this was achieved by imposing restrictions on the playground area, having an adult or bigger brother around, and being in the reach in case of danger. New devices have come along, offering attractive features for keeping children safe: cellular phones with parental control features, tracking devices, and wristwatches with GPS tracking and phone functionality.
