Senior User Experience Manager

Full Time

Pacific Northwest US

Are you a hands-on kind of manager who can lead cross-functional teams and
usability people; interact with teams and device vendors to brainstorm,
analyze, evaluate, and improve interfaces; and infuse passion for UX
improvements into your enterprise from the researcher to the boardroom?

This is a great opportunity to build long term program initiatives and
carries the authority to effect change.

Your degree in HCI or psych gives you a head start.

Tools for prototyping asp.net pages?

We have recently adopted ASP.NET as our standard platform for web
apps. We also have settled on a 3rd party suite of controls to use.
What are the available tools for a web designer for
designing/prototyping ASP.NET applications? So far I'm evaluating
Visual Studio and Expression Web. Visual Studio obviously can get
the work done, but its not very "designer-friendly". However, the
3rd party tools installed themselves nicely into the toolbox, so that
is a plus. Expression Web OTOH, operates very similar to
Dreamweaver, which is comfortable for the designers.

We'll talk about different types of browsers (not just iPhone and
Webkit), design for different screen sizes in the mobile environment,
and refactoring your web site for mobile access.

Content of Cooper vs Beck

Hi all,

While looking interaction design in an agile context, I'm constantly
coming across a certain very landmark public discussion from 2004
between Alan Cooper and Kent Beck (of Extreme Programming) mentioned
across the web. It seems this was a very insightful discussion and I
am very curious to read it.

The original link to the content however is dead -

Would anybody have a copy of it stored with them and be able to share
it with me?
