MADISON , CONNECTICUT, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —


All-Star Poets Headline 2019 Poetry by the Sea: A Global Conference

Madison, Conn. Feb. 20, 2019 – No matter the sport, aspiring professional athletics flock to training camps for invaluable instruction from coaches, players and former players that can help improve their game.
Poetry by the Sea, a Global Conference, is the same for poets, with this difference: everyone, faculty and students alike, is still in the game, each laboring to bend words to their will.
Held May 21 to May 24 at the 33-acre Mercy by the Sea Retreat Center on Long Island Sound in Madison, Conn., Poetry by the Sea offers four days of immersion in the art form with some of the top poets writing and teaching today.
National Book Award and MacArthur Foundation grant winner Terrance Hayes will deliver the keynote address.
Alicia E. Stallings, National Book Critics Award finalist and director of the Athens, Greece Poetry Center, will give the annual conference lecture.
“I Can’t Talk About the Trees Without the Blood,” collection author Tiana Clark, Milton Kessler Poetry Book Award finalist Sean Thomas Dougherty, Pushcart Prize winner and Stanford University Stegner Fellow Richie Hofmann, and National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist Adrian Matejka will give featured readings.
You can see the full Poetry by the Sea schedule by clicking here. You can also visit their webpage, http://www.poetrybytheseaconference.org/schedule.htm.
“It's a jewel of a conference – several days of eating, breathing, and sleeping poetry in one of the loveliest spots on the East Coast,” said Able Muse Book Award winner Melissa Balmain, who will lead a three-day workshop.

“I love how diverse the attendees are, and how even the most famous poets there seem to care very little about hierarchy,” Balmain said. “Last year I was chatting with this funny, friendly woman at one of the cocktail receptions, and it took me a couple moments to realize, holy cats, she's (former US Poet Laureate) Rita Dove.”

“Poetry by the Sea weaves an unusually diverse collection of poetic ideas and communities into a gracious tapestry,” said poet and writer Annie Finch, who will provide metrical consultations at the 2019 gathering.

“There are superstar poetry readings; panels on a range of topics spanning formal craft, free verse, and performance poetry; good food; and unforgettable moments,” Finch said. “I don't know of any other poetry conference that is at once so serious and worthwhile, so inclusive and open-minded, and so fun.”

“Poetry by the Sea gives us a community and sense of solidarity,” said poet Martin Espáda, who will lead one of several three-day workshops. “It offers a sense of urgency. We’re all there to accomplish the same thing, acting in concert to find a voice.”
“Poetry by the Sea is a significant event because it is a conference where writers gather to be in each other's company in service to an art,” said Michael Shewmaker, the Jones Lecturer in Poetry at Stanford University. Shewmaker has attended Poetry by the Sea as a participant, reader and faculty. “There is space for everyone–beginners and experts alike.
“As someone who grew up largely without that sort of community, it is truly a gift.”

Creating a diverse and supportive community was one of Poetry by the Sea founder Kim Bridgford’s goals with the first 2015 conference.
“I love to balance ethnicity and gender so that many constituency groups can be honored and represented,” Bridgford said. “I dreamt of bringing the best people together for days of poetry and conversation, to discuss the poetic wonder, that magic. I wanted to have different ages and voices. We have about every age in the audience. High school students have presented.”
Bridgford is also editor of the Mezzo Cammin Women’s Poet Timeline Project, which aims to create the world’s largest database of women poets. She said Yale University professor and friend Dolores Hayden suggested the Mercy by the Sea Retreat Center location.
“If you were imagining the perfect setting for a conference, it would be this gorgeous place,” Bridgford said. “We even have our own chef.”
The location is a poet’s dream.
“The Sound is beautiful and it invites a certain type of introspection that is conducive to the writing process,” said Shewmaker. “I always come away from the conference feeling energized.”

“Did I mention the food,” said Balmain. “The kitchen staff deserves a Michelin star.”

Poetry by the Sea offers several attendance packages, with on-site and offsite housing rates. A limited number of scholarships are available. Evening attendance tickets are also available.

Rooms at the Mercy by the Sea Center are limited, but there are a variety of housing options available nearby, including Bed & Breakfasts and hotels.

Craig Schoenfeld Understands the Power of Storytelling

Craig Schoenfeld

DES MOINES, IOWA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you want to succeed in politics and business, you have to utilize the power of storytelling. For years Craig Schoenfeld has helped clients in politics and beyond to utilize this powerful tool.

If there is one thing Craig Schoenfeld has focused on in his twenty plus years in politics, it’s the importance of telling powerful and meaningful stories. There is no doubt that every great business owner, public speaker, politician and activist from Martin Luther King Jr., to Steve Jobs understand the art and power of great storytelling.

“People get caught up on the big picture and they often forget to start with the why,” explained Craig Schoenfeld. “I always remind my clients that if you don’t know why you are doing something, your audience won’t either and they can’t get behind someone they don’t believe in.”

People today connect to others more than ever before and your potential target demographics are all drawn to captivating leaders and organizations that can communicate a meaningful and engaging story. This form of storytelling can connect your audience to an idea larger than ourselves and gives your audience the chance to feel like they are a part of the story on a deeper level.

This kind of storytelling is especially powerful in political messaging and you see it clearly whenever a politician announces a run for President of the United States.

“They tend to focus on a specific type of messaging that will resonate with their base and take their message to new heights,” explained Craig Schoenfeld. “Politicians focus on this type of messaging because it’s the most shareable and a conversation starter.”

All great companies and leaders understand the importance of crafting a story that people want to share and talk about. This type of evangelism is something that great companies and leaders focus on when crafting stories for the public. You want your target audience to feel so moved and so connected to the story you are sharing that they talk about it everywhere they go, from the grocery store to college campuses.

Another great example of utilizing the power of storytelling was President Barack Obama’s meteoric rise during his first Presidential run. More than ever before, people all around the country all felt connected to the same story so much so that they had to share it with everyone they came in contact with.

If you can tap into the power of storytelling, Craig Schoenfeld believes you can take your company and message to new heights. To learn more and to connect with Craig Schoenfeld, click here.

Learn 4 Popular Painting Styles with Marcula Stauffer

Marcula Stauffer

Experienced artist, Marcula Stauffer, explains common themes used in fine art.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Museums and galleries hold a vast array of magnificent artwork from different artists around the world. Each professional has a unique perspective and a preferred style of painting.

As a viewer, art can become even more fascinating with a background on some popular painting styles that can help you better understand the landscape. After years of experience, Marcula Stauffer shares four common painting styles found in fine art galleries.

1. Realism

This form of art is also commonly called naturalism. Realism can be identified when the painter tries to create something that realistically depicts natural life. A viewer will typically find this type of artwork without large distortions. This style of painting generally applies to outdoor landscapes, portraits of people, and real-life situations. Marcula Stauffer also notes that realism is a very popular form of sharing history, dating back hundreds of years.

2. Abstract

At first, the viewer may not know exactly what they’re looking at. The beauty of abstract art is that it’s a very expressive form of painting for the creator. According to Marcula Stauffer, abstract art does not need to follow any guidelines or depict any real life situation. That means the canvas is truly open to interpretation and embodies a pure form of creativity. Many famous artists like Pablo Picasso are known for this expressive style of painting.

3. Surrealism

Back in the 1920’s, a French writer named André Brenton started the concept of surrealism. This style of artwork is inspired by fantasy and dreams, or the subconscious, where you can find common things outside of their usual element. Spanish artist, Salvador Dalí, is well known for his unusual artwork, some of which depict melting instruments. Marcula Stauffer best explains surrealism as life that tries to be weird and break out of reality.

4. Pop Art

This style of art dates back to the 1950’s and is inspired by consumerism in American culture. You can find this both inside and outside of the museum in things like advertising, comic books, and food labels. Marcula Stauffer notes that there is really no hidden meaning to this colorful technique, and it is currently one of the most popular styles of modern art. Pop art can be described as quirky and fun, and is one of the most recognizable styles of art due to its unique characteristics. used this style regularly and is very famous for his contributions to the art community.

Coping with stress is a real dilemma for everyone. Physician Matthew Bogard explains how effective stress management can improve the quality of your life.

Matthew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

you should get proper sleep, consume a balanced diet, moderate your intake of alcohol, and manage your time efficiently. If this doesn’t help, consult a medical doctor to help you manage stress”

— Matthew Bogard, MD in Iowa & Nebraska

CHARITON, IOWA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — People may be affected by stress at any stage of their lives. Usually, adults suffer from stress because of problems related to their family and workplace. Teens stress out due to academic and social pressures. They might find it difficult to study and score good grades. They could also have difficulty acclimating to their school’s environment and making friends. Moreover, people suffer from stress because of difficult relationships, bullying, unemployment, the loss of a loved one, among many other causes. Matthew Bogard, MD, shares his thoughts in a new article, which is available on his blog at https://matthewbogardmd.blogspot.com/

Stress greatly affects your health in a number of ways. This may include frequent headaches, difficulty sleeping and concentrating, fatigue, unusual mood swings, and an upset stomach. The effects of long-term stress include high blood pressure, heart attack, abnormal changes in weight, depression, skin problems, and fertility problems.

Stress management is a tool that can help you cope up with the trials and tribulations of life and decrease your chances of developing health complications. Here are some useful stress management tips that help you set your stress aside.

Avoid Over-analyzing

If you’re facing problems managing the office workload or going through a difficult relationship, do not let it affect your health. You should learn to accept some things as they are and understand the fact that excessively worrying about an issue and letting it overtake your mind won’t make things better. All you need to do is stop thinking and take action.

Talk to your boss and colleagues about the problems that you’re facing. They will help you find a way to overcome those problems. If you’re in a difficult relationship, talk to your partner and try to solve your problems by putting your differences aside. Taking action will solve problems and save you from over-thinking and getting stressed unnecessarily.

Ask Yourself “So What?”

Whenever you face a difficult situation in life, think of the worst that can happen. Ask yourself the “so what?” question. Thinking about the worst case scenario can help you maintain an optimistic attitude and accept life’s problems. You’ll understand the fact that there are certain events in life that you do not have power over. You cannot control those things or prevent them from happening.

Control Your Anger

Feeling upset and being furious over petty issues in life can cause you to suffer from unnecessary stress. Remaining calm and solving problems logically instead of getting aggressive can sort out a lot of problems in your life that cause stress.

Similarly, you don’t need to say everything that you think. Sometimes, you need to let go of things and suppress your inner voice and beliefs. Arguing needlessly will do nothing else except further complicate things and cause stress.

Exercise, Yoga, and Meditation

Meditation and yoga can help you gain control over your feelings and lower your chances of developing stress. Yoga helps in connecting your mind with your body. It will help you in dealing with stressful situations calmly. Moreover, daily exercise can help you fight stress by releasing chemicals in your brain called endorphins that soothe your brain and lower stress.

Apart from these tips, you should get proper sleep, consume a balanced diet, moderate your intake of alcohol, and manage your time efficiently. If this doesn’t help, consult a medical doctor to help you manage stress and live a better life. Don’t ignore stress thinking that it will go away on its own, advises Dr. Matthew Bogard. Following the above-mentioned stress management tips or seeking professional help are the best options that you have.

Aerospace Shapes the Future of Students through Online Mentoring

TryEngineering Together’s eMentoring program provides a platform for students and Aerospace volunteers to communicate on STEM topics.

Our focus is to inspire and nurture the next generation of engineers and scientists, some of whom will work in supporting our nation’s space enterprise one day.”

— Chuck Gustafson

EL SEGUNDO, CA, USA , February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Demonstrating an ongoing commitment to innovation in STEM education, employees of The Aerospace Corporation (Aerospace) will provide online mentoring to fifth grade students from Kujawa Elementary School, a Houston, TX school where 89 percent of these students are economically disadvantaged. TryEngineering Together’s eMentoring program provides a platform for students and Aerospace volunteers to communicate throughout the school year on a variety of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics.

“We’re thrilled to serve as STEM mentors to these students,” said Chuck Gustafson, senior vice president for Aerospace’s Engineering and Technology division. “Our focus is to inspire and nurture the next generation of engineers and scientists, some of whom will work in supporting our nation’s space enterprise one day.”

Students and Aerospace volunteers were matched one-on-one in eMentoring relationships to create powerful STEM learning experiences. Guided by a curriculum designed to be engaging, interactive and thought-provoking, students and their eMentors read short, timely articles related to STEM subjects and discuss related hands-on engineering challenges that students are experiencing in class. Throughout the academic year, students and mentors communicate regularly online through a pen-pal exchange to ask questions, share ideas, investigate new developments and complete projects together.

“Our employees jumped at the opportunity to mentor these fifth grade students,” said Lianne McGinley, associate director of Aerospace’s Corporate Social Responsibility program. “Our volunteers include a diverse group of the nation’s top engineers and scientists in space, each one offering to make a difference in the life of these children.”

The focus on delivering STEM mentorship in third through fifth grades is intentional. Once students reach fourth grade, research shows one-third have lost an interest in science, and by eighth grade nearly 50 percent have lost interest or deemed it irrelevant to their education or career plans. Reaching and inspiring elementary school students is critical to building young people’s confidence and acumen in STEM.

“As the demand for diverse STEM workers continues to outpace supply, forward thinking companies like Aerospace realize that eMentoring will excite and prepare their next-generation workforce,” said Nina Zolt, founder of Cricket Media and co-creator of TryEngineering Together program. “We need to start early if we want to ensure that there is a diverse talent pool of scientists, engineers and technologists to drive the future of innovation. But we can’t do this alone. We need corporate support like Aerospace is providing to reach all of the students who can benefit.”

Aerospace’s Corporate Social Responsibility program aligns with TryEngineering Together program to support the future of innovation and creativity in the STEM fields. Aerospace volunteers engage with local communities where they live and work to inspire STEM education opportunities for those students who need help the most.

San José – Evergreen CCD Fills Key Leadership Roles

We are very fortunate to be adding two people with extraordinary skills and experiences and visionary leadership to our District.”

— Dr. Byron D. Clift Breland, SJECCD chancellor

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD) recently welcomed new leaders to two key roles within the District's administration, appointing Jorge L. Escobar interim vice chancellor of administrative services and Dr. Beatriz Chaidez associate vice chancellor of human resources.

"These are very important leadership positions within our District and will help move our District forward. Following our robust search process, Jorge and Beatriz were the clear top candidates for their respective positions," said Dr. Byron D. Clift Breland, SJECCD chancellor. "We are very fortunate to be adding two people with extraordinary skills and experiences and visionary leadership to our District."

Before his appointment as interim vice chancellor, Escobar took on the role of acting president at San José City College (SJCC) where he had previously served as vice president of administrative services since 2014.

Before joining SJCC, Escobar held various leadership positions with Princeton University, Laureate International Universities, the National Hispanic University, and Merrill Lynch. He has extensive experience in strategic planning, business reengineering, fiscal management, business development, technology implementation, online education, and oversight of construction projects.

During his tenure at SJCC, the college opened an extension site in Milpitas, a welding lab, and a physical education building and gymnasium, among other projects, all of which were built under Escobar's leadership.

His educational background includes a Master of Science in education from Walden University, Bachelor of Science in business administration-finance from Rider University, Bachelor of Science in business administration management from Thomas Edison State College, and an Associate of Applied Science in business administration and accounting from County College of Morris.

"I take this opportunity as a way of exercising all my experience and knowledge with the ultimate intention of making our colleges the top choice for higher education in Silicon Valley," Escobar said.

Dr. Chaidez has spent more than 20 years in education, a career which began as a classroom teacher and saw her most recently serving as assistant superintendent for human resources with Salinas City Elementary School District (SCESD).

She has held numerous positions within education, including director of pupil personnel services and special education—also with SCESD—assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction with Sacramento City Unified School District and superintendent/principal with Raisin City School District.

Dr. Chaidez has extensive experience with worker's compensation, classification, and compensation of job descriptions, employment law, labor negotiations, California Educational Code, and Title 5, all of which will inform the work she does for SJECCD. She has also served as an executive board member for both the Association of California School Administrators and the California Association of Latino Superintendents and Administrators.

"I'm very pleased to be joining San José – Evergreen Community College District. My personal values align closely with the District's mission and values, and I look forward to using my skills and experience to help advance our mission and serve our students and community," Dr. Chaidez said. "I understand and appreciate the vital role that community colleges play in our educational system, particularly for many individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups."

Chaidez holds a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of California, Davis; a Master of Arts in educational administration from Fresno Pacific University; and a Bachelor of Arts in liberal studies from California State University, Fresno.

"Both Jorge and Beatriz have shown unwavering commitment to our District's core values of Opportunity, Equity, and Social Justice throughout their careers," Dr. Clift Breland said. "I look forward to working closely with both of them as members of our Executive Cabinet."


About San José – Evergreen Community College District

Digestive Disorders can happen to anyone, anytime. A new easy-to-understand article by Dr. William Lee Matzner explains in detail.

Healthcare Analytics, LLC (N/A:N/A)

Keeping a strict check on the food that you eat can reduce your chances of developing digestive disorders. If you experience severe abdominal pain and diarrhea which lasts for weeks, consult a doctor”

— Dr. William Matzner, California (Healthcare Analytics, LLC)

SIMI VALLEY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Physician and analyst William Matzner, MD has published an informational article on the issue of digestive disorders. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. William Matzner at https://drwilliammatzner.blogspot.com

Digestive disorders are among the most common diseases. People all around the world develop these problems regardless of their age or gender. Your eating habits play a significant role in maintaining the health of your digestive system so you should keep a check on what you eat.

Your digestive system consists of your digestive tract and organs that help in breaking down food that you eat. Your digestive tract can develop problems which make your body unable to digest food properly. People who do not take care of their eating habits are more likely to develop these problems. Here are the most common types of digestive disorders and the factors that increase the risk of developing them.

1. Acid Reflux

Do you feel a burning sensation in your chest after you’ve eaten a big juicy burger loaded with lots of cheese? This condition is termed as acid reflux. The medical term used for it is Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD. The ring-shaped muscles on top of your stomach become weak, resulting in the stomach acid leaking back into your food pipe. You can reduce the risk of developing GERD by eating low-fat foods and decreasing the size of your meals.

2. Constipation

We all know what it feels like to be constipated. It happens when your diet lacks foods that contain fiber, resulting in difficulty passing stool. Your intestine does not contract enough to allow stool to pass out of your body. Eating fruits and drinking adequate amount of water will help you reduce the chances of developing constipation.

3. Gastroenteritis

Gastroenteritis, commonly known as stomach flu, is a condition caused when bacteria or viruses enter your stomach. This condition results in severe stomach pain, diarrhea and vomiting. It happens when you eat food that contains bacteria. Gastroenteritis is more common in children than it is in adults. You can reduce your chances of developing stomach flu by eating meals prepared at home and avoiding eating unhygienic foods. Eating unwashed fruits, undercooked meat and unpasteurized dairy products are the common causes of food poisoning which results in stomach flu.

4. Gallstones

Your liver has a small sac attached to it which stores bile – a fluid that helps in digesting fatty foods. This sac is known as the gallbladder and it often develops solid deposits called gallstones. They develop as a result of eating high-fat foods or sometimes if your gallbladder is unable to clear out all of the bile present inside it. You’re at a high risk of developing gallstones if you consume too much fatty foods or if this condition runs in your family.

5. Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) is the condition in which you feel a long-lasting burning sensation in your abdomen. Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are two conditions that fall into this category. The symptoms of IBD include diarrhea, severe stomach pain and weight loss. Your doctor will prescribe drugs to treat IBD or suggest that you go for a surgery if the medicines don’t work.

Keeping a strict check on the food that you eat can reduce your chances of developing digestive disorders. If you experience severe abdominal pain and diarrhea which lasts for weeks, consult a doctor immediately. Ignoring these symptoms will worsen your digestive problems and weaken your digestive system, notes Dr. Matzner.

Like many medical issues, Parkinson’s disease is a complex matter and difficult to comprehend. Medical researcher Paul Norwood, MD, explains in layman's terms

Valley Endocrine and Research (N/A:N/A)

The origin of this disease is unknown but there are some factors which increase a person’s risk of developing it, such as one's family history”

— Physician Paul Norwood, Valley Endocrine clinic, endocrinology

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Is one of your loved ones suffering from Parkinson’s disease? Do you find it difficult to understand what they’re going through? Physician and researcher Paul Norwood, MD has published an informational article on this subject. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Norwood at https://PaulNorwoodMD.blogspot.com/

This article will tell you all about this disease and how it affects the human brain. It is not easy to watch your loved ones go through a disease that has no cure. All you can do is help them manage their life and help them improve their condition. Parkinson’s is one such disease which has no cure. It is a long-term disease which deteriorates the performance of the human brain over a long period of time. The symptoms of this disease show up slowly but the scientists haven’t found a cure for it yet.

What Is Parkinson’s Disease?

Your body is made up of two nervous systems – central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). The central nervous system consists of your brain and the spinal cord. The minor nerves and the grey matter of your body make up the peripheral nervous system. Your brain sends signals to your body organs through the spinal cord so that your body functions properly.

Parkinson’s disease affects the central nervous system. It slows down body movement because the brain is unable to properly send signals to the body organs. At first, Parkinson’s patients experience symptoms such as shaking, slow movement and difficulty walking. Later on, they develop behavioral and cognitive problems. This condition worsens over time and issues such as dementia, anxiety and depression take over.

We take our body movement for granted. Right now, you must be using your fingers to navigate through this article. To move your finger, your brain sends a message through nerves present in your spinal cord called motor neurons. These motor neurons connect with the muscles in your fingers and allow them to move. This process of sending signals from your brain to your organs occurs within a fraction of a second.

In Parkinson’s disease, the neurons die and therefore your body is unable to move. With the passage of time, patients develop difficulty swallowing and chewing food. Furthermore, they are unable to control their bladder and pass stool. These difficulties cause patients to become bed-ridden.

The origin of this disease is unknown but there are some factors which increase a person’s risk of developing it. If your family has a history of this disease, you are more likely to develop it. A genetic mutation develops this disease and if it runs in your family, you are at a risk of having it. Apart from that, exposure to certain toxic chemicals can minutely increase your chances of developing Parkinson’s. Also, people over 60 years of age and men are more likely to develop this condition, notes physician Paul Norwood.

How to Deal with It?

As of now, there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease but certain medicines can help control the symptoms. These medicines contain substances that increase production of dopamine – a chemical released by the neurons to transmit signals in the body. Doctors recommend aerobic exercise, yoga and physical therapy to improve the body’s balance. Moreover, if the patient is unable to speak properly, a speech therapist can be hired to help them cope up with it. Keeping pets can also improve Parkinson’s symptoms.

So, now that you know what causes Parkinson’s disease and how to deal with it, you can help your loved ones cope up with this disease and make them feel better.

— Neen James

DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Paying attention to the things that matter and the difference that makes in professional and personal life will be the focus of the address by Neen James, MBA, CSP, at PMI Mile Hi’s 21st Annual Project Management Symposium, coming April 19, at the Colorado Convention Center, Denver, CO.

An internationally renowned speaker, James is the author of “Folding Time—How to Get Twice as Much Done in Half the Time” and “Attention Pays-—How to Drive Profitability, Productivity & Accountability.” (www.NeenJames.com)

BM Interactive Group & Piloto 151 join forces to bring User Experience Training to Developers & Designers in Puerto Rico

Training workshop for UX Decoded for Developers on March 30th at Piloto 151

UX + DEV Process Decoded Workshop - March 29th

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO, February 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — San Juan, Puerto Rico – BM Interactive Group, LLC, a user experience and product design services business headquartered in Miami, FL, and Piloto 151, Puerto Rico’s top cutting edge coworking facilities for tech and entrepreneurs, are teaming up to bring a two-day event of affordable user experience professional training for all techies, developers, designers, product managers, and local business owners looking to learn or further enhance their knowledge in UX.

At the event, from Friday, March 29th thru Saturday, March 30th, 2019, a total of two UX workshops will take place. “UX For Developers Decoded” is tailored to the developer looking to not only understand and learn about UX but also understand how to quickly apply UX to their day to day practice. It will assist them in further bridging that gap between technology and design.

Sofia Stolberg, Co-founder and CEO of Piloto 151, stated that “although Puerto Rico’s startup and tech ecosystem is burgeoning, most companies have failed to prioritize user interfaces and experiences as crucial elements to developing world-class products and services. Educating startup founders, tech leaders and the general population on the importance of user-centric designs to drive sustainable business growth will take us further in fulfilling our mission of continuing to strengthen our tech ecosystem.”

The second workshop, “UX+DEV Processes Decoded” is tailored to product teams or business owners looking to not only understand and improve their internal process to maintain user experience but also execute and deliver products quickly and efficiently. This workshop will address pain points teams face throughout the product journey, allowing teams to create and develop rich experiences effortlessly.

“Puerto Rico has an upcoming tech scene today, which is why I definitely see the potential and value in helping companies and professionals realize the importance of UX, as well as understanding how UX is a must-have to remain competitive in today’s digital landscape,” said Ignacio Garcia-Huidobro, founder of BM Interactive Group and co-founder of UX+DEV SUMMIT.

Invision App, a worldwide leading design tool used by many product teams, recently published a “2019 UX Trends” article which states:

“From a consumer perspective, good UX is no longer considered a unique selling point. It’s gone from being a novelty—something that really helps a product stand out—to an expectation. We’ve reached a point where, if a product or service provides a sub-par user experience, the user will discard and replace it in a heartbeat.”

“We’re passionate about Puerto Rico and we love to see how the tech scene is growing, which in turn will provide great opportunities and jobs to the area. We’re hoping to contribute in our own unique way with education” says Ignacio.

Lastly, attendees that participate will have a chance to meet and network with like-minded individuals, while visiting the wonderful facilities Piloto 151 has to offer. They will also have the opportunity to learn about Piloto 151’s Codetrotters, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean’s first coding boot camp, along with their newest course in UX Design.

The event will take place at Piloto 151’s Old San Juan location. You can learn more about Piloto 151, BM Interactive Group, and the upcoming workshops at:
