VOLUNTEERS

CanUX / UXcamp 2010-15

The new CanUX conference (formerly UXcamp Ottawa) is created and organized entirely by volunteers. They volunteer their valuable time, resources, brain cycles and ingenuity to make this event bigger and better every year. Even our renowned speakers have waived their speaking fees to be part of our event. Everyone involved in CanUX is doing it to contribute to the growth of our professional community. The overwhelmingly positive feedback received each year validates that these guys are doing a hell of a job, so this page is a tribute to those that have helped over the years.

CanUX 2005-09

The original CanUX events were created and organized by nForm. The inaugural edition (2005) was originally organized by BNIC. CanUX was an intimate affair, shaped as a combination of workshops and a retreat, taking place at the reclusive Banff Centre in Banff, AB. If you’d like to relieve some of those moments, search the tag ‘#canux’ on Flickr.
