  • Ask Why!

    If you are interested in design methodologies, UX Design, Product management or all of the above, then this is your opportunity to learn and share.!

     

    The great thing about the jam is, that there are no boundaries. Design enthusiasts will be able to apply their methods and tools in a process to make the world a better place. Sustainability experts will be able to share their knowledge and be inspired by new ways of working. Students of all professions will work in an inspiring environment and learn more about both topics.

     

    A design jam can best be explained when it is compared to a music jam. For music jams people with various skills come together to play music. It is all about playing with each other, creating a unique atmosphere and learning from each other. The goal is not so much to produce a fantastic studio album. As an outcome some music jammers will form a band after the jam, others simply learned new ways of playing music.
