About The Smash

UX+DEV SUMMIT and FLUX, Yeah! invite you to spend an evening on Fort Lauderdale’s pristine beaches to compete in the ultimate UX+Dev smash session! Participants will design solutions that impact the world! This event is going to be off the hook!!!

Unlike our traditional “Design-A-Thon” challenge we’ve had the past two years, where attendees apply design solutions to improve a product, we’ll be pushing the bar this year by presenting two real-world problems that affect the greatest ecosystem of the world.

Attendees will be presented with two overall eco-challenges that must be solved to save the planet from destruction…and we mean it!!

Did I mention we’ll have tasty cold beverages and killer pizza?

What To Expect

Attendees will works in teams (made up of designers, thinkers, developers, and innovators). They will define the key aspects of the problem, asking critical questions, ideating, strategizing and, finally, presenting a compelling solution. These solutions will be judged by experts in the field and scored on the usability, feasibility and viability of your solution. Did anyone mention we’ll be giving away prizes? Hint…YES!!!

What You Will Learn

Using a design thinking process, you and your team will be given tools to create an innovative solution to a problem. Apply your skills to problems in a high-pressure environment that will challenge YOU to push your limits to a new level. This session is NOT your regular design jam or hackathon…that ain’t UX+DEV SUMMIT.
