UXDX Supports Laid-Off Tech Professionals in Ireland with Free Conference Tickets

DUBLIN, 21/08/2023 - The tech world is currently facing an industry slowdown, and many professionals are at a crossroads. Ireland accounts for a staggering 40% of all tech redundancies in the EU between 2020 and mid-2023, equivalent to 120,000 jobs, as reported by Eurofound. UXDX is offering help to those professionals affected by layoffs by generously offering 50 free tickets to the UXDX EMEA conference, scheduled for 11-12 October at RDS. The primary objective? Empower them to reinvent, upskill, and take control of their future career.

Scott Belsky, CPO Adobe, recently highlighted the competitive edge teams gained when the 'talent stack was collapsed'. In layman's terms, this means a designer who is also a great copywriter, or a developer who also has good research skills. When roles blend and skills diversify, decision-making becomes more streamlined and products benefit. This 't-shaped' skill is the way forward, and UXDX is committed to leading the way.

UXDX’s unique approach to improving software development is to promote product teams and these t-shaped skills. By fostering an environment where Product Managers, UX Researchers, Designers, and Developers not only coexist but deeply understand and value each other’s roles, UXDX ensures a more holistic and efficient process from idea to execution.

"Having faced layoffs myself, I understand the challenges ahead. We're offering these tickets as a commitment to continuous learning and adaptability, hoping to empower professionals to not only find new roles but excel in them."

For those who have recently faced job cuts, this is more than just an event – it's an opportunity. An opportunity to reshape one's career, broaden one's skill set, and to be at the forefront of a tech evolution that prioritises adaptability and interdisciplinary knowledge.
