Whether you’re completely new to UX, or a professional in the field looking for tips, joining an online community is a great place to ask for possible solutions, stay on top of trends, and connect with others with a common interest!
Here are some of the best online user experience communities in my opinion, including LinkedIn groups, Facebook groups and Slack groups.
