    • UserExperienceAwards.com #UXAwards @UXAwards © 2013 User Experience Awards USER EXPERIENCE AWARDS 2013 GIRL DEVELOP IT! Women Developers and Programmers! Want to learn how to code? Have a great idea? Don’t be shy. Develop it. It can be intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today’s budding developer community is up to 91% male. There isn’t a comfortable place where women can learn at their own pace and not be afraid to ask “stupid questions.” We decided it was time to provide a place where all questions are OK and everyone can learn in a supportive environment. Our courses focus on coding, leveraging existing technology, and having something to show for it (aka building sweet websites). The community is a highly targeted mix of influencers and connectors including Startup Founders & Entrepreneurs, Technology and Media Executives, Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors, Marketers, Product Managers, Analysts, Technologists, Developers, Bloggers and more. meetup.com/girldevelopit COMMUNITY SPONSORS

    • UserExperienceAwards.com #UXAwards @UXAwards © 2013 User Experience Awards USER EXPERIENCE AWARDS 2013 We’ve built The Hired Guns to help the digital creative class expand their potential far beyond the 9-to-5, bringing their expertise to companies in unexpected and exciting ways and guiding their careers through transitions from freelance gigs to fulltime jobs and back again. The Hired Guns was founded in early 2000: an unsettled time for Corporate America, but for the creative class, the start of a new era of entrepreneurship and individualism. It was a scary trend for many, but for us it was just the motivation we needed. Borrowing from the only model that made sense, we started our talent agency in the mold of Hollywood-style representation, hand-picking our talent, growing with them over time and helping them to manage their evolving careers. thehiredguns.com COMMUNITY SPONSORS

We were given a prompt: Create a universal design solution for a person with one arm, to help her to better use her wireless devices. Activ allows a user to interact with their phone without using their hand, while reducing the intrusiveness of current voice-activated technologies. Using electromyography technology, commonly used in prosthetics, the bluetooth headset detects intentional muscle movements in the jaw and uses these signals to interact with their phone without even having to remove it from their pocket. vtwirelessproject.tumblr.com
