Over the years it has evolved to 7 events from Thursday – Sunday. Included in those days are a Business Roundtable, Welcome Reception, 2 Golf Tournaments, Women’s Empowerment Brunch, Party with a Purpose and Farewell Brunch. It’s the premier networking event that focuses on the empowerment of the community and a chance for great exposure for business.

The Gray Classic’s mission is to help provide an avenue for young students to achieve a higher education, engage young students with mentor programs and to provide networking opportunities for our youth and adult participants.

Learn UI/UX: Prototyping and Testing Your Next Idea

Hosted by: BLKTECHCLT

Registration: $15 per person

Building a prototype can save time and money by reducing development costs. While testing your idea with actual users will provide impactful feedback that you can use to iterate immediately and cheaply.

In this workshop we will walk through tools and techniques to create an interactive mock-up of your product. Next we will show you how to gather feedback on your designs from the right audience through usability testing.

You will leave with resources and techniques used by professional user experience designers.
