About the instructor - Ian Fenn
Thousands of designers have obtained work after following my advice or using my tools. Some say I invented the UX portfolio. It would be more accurate to say that I created a style of UX portfolio that has worked effectively for UX designers and researchers ever since I debuted it publicly in 2012. Since then, I've continued to research hiring manager needs and presented my findings at conferences such as SXSW, Big Design, and CanUX.

Weren't you writing a book about this?
I was, and still am. It's late because I hit the perfect storm of illness, relationship and career instability, and quite a lot of imposter syndrome. This course is a way of testing much of the book content before committing it to print. I will get it done.
