Registered participants will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this offering will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.


No prior knowledge is required. Aspiring, novice and intermediate product design, development and product management professionals will find this most beneficial.

2-Day Product Design Bootcamp
Reviewed by Apri M. on 5/20/2019
I really enjoyed this class. It was very enlightening and informative of what product design is. I loved the instructor, Carm. She had neat ideas to get us warmed up the 1st day. I also enjoyed the research exercise we did out by the Riverwalk. I recommend this for anyone who wants a better understanding of UX and Product Design. I would be interested in attending other classes in the near future.
