The Gray Classic was founded in 2009 by Herb and Felicia Gray as a golf tournament. The main purpose of this four day event is to raise community awareness and money to support the mentoring efforts of the 100 Black Men of Greater Charlotte (“The 100”). The Gray Classic has become the major fundraising event for The 100, to date raising more than $736,000 to support the programs benefitting the youth in The 100 programs.

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 weekend is made up of over 2,500 participants including many business, civic, and political leaders.

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

Whether you are building an app or a website it's important to get feedback from the right audience at the start. In this workshop we will focus on two important parts of building your MVP. Creating your prototype and then testing it with users.

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.
