[EVENT] IxDA NYC: Tues May 12 - Cindy Chastain on "Experience Themes"

RSVP http://tinyurl.com/ixdanyc-may09

IxDA NYC invites you to our May event:

CINDY CHASTAIN
speaking on
"Experience Themes: An Element of Story Applied to Design"

As designers we too often neglect to define a common vision, or coordinating
force, behind the scope of what we’re designing, making or building. Without
some means of unifying our efforts we can easily end up with a product or
service that falls short of its potential of delivering an optimal user
experience.

refreshements!

[EVENT] IxDA-SF Presents: When UX Research is Evil - Tuesday, April 28th

*When UX Research is Evil*
Usually when you design and conduct a user research study, you're focused on
keeping the methods sound, recruiting good users, and asking the right
questions, which is already a tall order. Unfortunately, no matter how well
you conduct your studies, your methods have little to do with how the
research ultimately gets used.

How to get better results from developers

Earlier this week at the local Utah IxDA meeting and over the last
while at various places I've heard the topic of how to deal with
developers come up. I was thinking about it and realized I had a lot
to say about it. Sorry for the length :)

I currently work at a very small company, less then 20. But compared
to the other stories I've heard lately from Interaction Designers
like myself in Utah, our company gets surprisingly consistent results
from our developers in regards to design.
