At this month’s Meetup we will be joining forces with Orlando Devs Meetup, and Downtown UX for the Orlando United cause.We all want to volunteer our skills as developers, designers, and civic hackers to help in the wake of the attack at Pulse. It would be amazing to create something that benefits the city, victims, and community of Orlando.
At our meeting we will have an ideation session to generate ideas about what we can create to help. If you have never participated in an ideation session before they are a lot of fun! Our goal is to take ideas we generate at this meetup and apply them to one of our next hack nights in months to come.
It is important to remember user empathy as groups brainstorm ideas for this endeavor. We should strive to be strategic, and empathetic to our potential users’ needs. This is so important because so many were physically and emotionally hurt by this tragedy and loss of 49 beautiful lives. We need to make sure our efforts, positivity, and support reach them where they need it the most.
