In memory of Dick Horst

With great sadness we share the news that Dick Horst has passed away. Cory Lebson and Chris Hass share their memories of Dick. Cory Lebson “I don’t know if things can be made better in heaven but if so, I’m sure Dick is up there doing research and telling God what to improve” said the pastor at the memorial service for Dick Horst.

So I relayed the …

Meet Abby Goodrum

We sat down with Abby Goodrum, Director of Education at UXPA International to learn how she got started in UX, her advice for people starting out in the field and what song makes her get up and dance! How did you get started in the field of UX?
