CHI 2011 Courses Reminder

(Apologies for cross-posting)

Just a reminder to anyone thinking of attending CHI (7-12 May, Vancouver, BC) that many courses are still available - see http://chi2011.org/program/courses.html

These courses represent excellent value for money since they are virtually free (USD 25 each) for registered conference attendees.

Among the 30+ to choose from, I'd like to draw attention to two that I am running: - Agile User Experience and UCD (full day on 10 May) - Card Sorting for Navigation Design (9:00-12:20 on 12 May)

Agile UX and UCD has attracted a lot of attention from usability

WebVisions Portland May 25-27, IXDA discount code

With only a few days left for early registration, I was looking for the IXDA discount code that WebVisions accepts for a further discount off early bird pricing. Is there anyone here who can help me and other interested attendees find this information?

Many thanks for your help.

"Make it pretty" - My Boss

Howdy, I work at an organization that believes having a "Pretty" skin is all you need to have a good User Experience. Has anyone ever run into this, and how does one overcome this. I am literally at my wits end trying to prototype different layouts, and explaining the need for user research/feedback. All comments are welcome, constructive or not.
