Last Friday started for me with friendly smiles of people who care about user-friendly solutions, which make our lifes better. I was happy to be among 60 attendees of the first UX Brunch Zürich 2015, organized by Valérie Vuillerat, Rahel Vils and Marc Steffen. Event took place in Impact Hub, which is known as a space with a good vibe. Being there is already enough to love the world around you even on an early Friday morning. But greeting and meeting people, who understand your challenges and the big meaning of those small victories on the way to great designs, is even better.

We don't know about you, quite frankly, but it seems that most of us on the team live our lives online, for the most part. I for example start my computer first thing in the morning and shut it down last thing before I go to bed, well, sometimes after I've gone to bed.
