AI-Driven UX: Unleashing Creativity


Designers Professionals of Canada and Iterate UX Foundation collaborate to bring back our UX & Design Hack in-person event to Vancouver. Each participant and winning team will be awarded a certificate for their participation.

UX & Design Hack is a code-free creative jam for designers. We are going to have participants work collaboratively on a creative project. Participants will have the opportunity to get some hands-on experience and work alongside with your fellow participants to build a working prototype and have some fun. No experience required. We will have senior designers in different disciplines to mentor the process.

1What is a UX & Design Hack?
UX & Design Hack is an Hackathon organized by the association of two Non-profits such as Designers Professionals of Canada and Iterate UX Foundation. A hackathon is an event where participants come together to collaborate on a project, typically within a limited time frame. It's an opportunity to brainstorm, design, and create innovative solutions to specific challenges or problems.
2Who can participate in UX & Design Hack?
UX & Design Hack is open to anyone with an interest in UX design, including professionals, students, and enthusiasts. Whether you're an experienced UX designer or just starting out, you're welcome to participate and contribute your skills.
3How do I register for the Hackathon?
Registration details and instructions will be provided on the event website or platform. Keep an eye out for announcements and follow the given registration process to secure your spot.
4Do I need to have a team to participate?
You will require a team to participate as long as the team member has registered in the registration period. We allow registration by individuals, so if your team didn't buy the ticket you might need to find a different group because the spots are limited. Check the Hackathon guidelines.
5What should I bring to the hackathon?
It's a good idea to bring your laptop or any other tools you usually use for UX design. We will provide sketching materials, sticky notes, and any other physical or digital prototyping resources you prefer working with.
6What will be provided at the hackathon?
The organizers provide a venue at Emily Carr Hall, breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages. We also offer basic amenities such as Wi-Fi, power outlets, and refreshments. Check the hackathon organizers for further details you will require.
7Will there be mentors or experts available during the hackathon?
UX & Design Hack provides mentors and experts to give guidance and support throughout the event to participants. Mentors can help answer questions, provide feedback on your designs, and assist with technical challenges. Each team will have one assigned mentor but you can ask any question to other available mentors in the event.
8What is the judging criteria for the hackathon?
The judging criteria will be communicated by the organizers before or at the start of the hackathon. It includes factors like innovation (AI), user experience, problem-solving, presentation, and teamwork. Be sure to understand the criteria to focus your efforts accordingly.
9Can I showcase my existing projects at the hackathon?
Generally, hackathons encourage participants to work on new projects during the event. However, rules may vary, so it's essential to review the hackathon guidelines to determine if showcasing existing projects is allowed.
10Can I use specific software or tools during the hackathon?
Most hackathons are flexible regarding the software and tools you can use. However, if there are any specific restrictions or requirements, the organizers will communicate them in advance. It's best to clarify any doubts beforehand to ensure a smooth experience.
11What happens to the projects created during the hackathon?
The organizers will inform you about the post-hackathon process. Some hackathons allow participants to retain ownership of their projects, while others may have different terms, such as open-sourcing the projects or taking ownership. Make sure to understand the terms and conditions before participating.
12How will updates and communication be shared during the UX Designer Hackathon?
We will provide information about the preferred communication channels for updates and announcements. Typically, email and Slack are commonly used for communication during hackathons. You may receive important updates, reminders, and guidelines through email. Additionally, Slack channels or groups may be created for participants to connect, ask questions, and share progress updates in real-time. Make sure to check your email regularly and join the designated Slack channels to stay informed throughout the event.
