I want to add that even if you've only been to one conference/workshop,
please fill in the survey -- that will be an extra data point for that
specific
conference!

Axure - Questions...and more questions

Thinking about using Axure for prototyping as there are many great benefits
from a documentation point of view.
However I am wondering about the learning curve and the ability to import
previously documented high level page structures (Visio)

Questions
1. What would be your estimate regarding the learning curve (timewise) to
becoming productive with Axure without feeling like you are blowing the
project timelines for deliverables?

2. Can you import Visio drawings into Axure?

3. My understanding is that Axure produces html code.

Use case patterns?

Is anyone aware of a library of use case patterns for ecommerce sites? I am
looking for basic and expanded use cases, not the long formal ones.

ID vs email address

The email address as user id is becoming the preferred way in my
opinion.

Pros:
an email address is unique;
an email address is easy to remember;
in many cases the system requires the email address also for sending
messages.

Cons:
still not everyone has an email address;
an email address may change over time.

Did you consider OpenID?

Help me categorize UX-related conferences/workshops

I've been asked numerous times to recommend conferences and workshops to
designers
and usability professionals.

I've decided to create a matrix to categorize the various events on two axis
-
1) practical to theoretical
2) non-visual to visual

If you have 5min, please take the following survey and help me create an
accurate
matrix:

*http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/99033/ux-conference-map

*I will of course publish the results as soon as I have a reasonable set of
data.

Best regards,
Russ

P.S.
