Name Top Agile UX Consulting Firms

Hello all,

I'm looking for a "short list" of top consulting firm recommendations (Boston, NY area preferred, but US-wide is ok too) to consider from anyone who has had direct experience working with such firms that have really proven their worth to introduce and foster transormative work practice around Agile UX for web design/development teams. To help frame the scope of the consulting, I'm envisioning a 5-8 day cross-discipline/stakeholder workshop and educational service focused on agile UX and collabortive web product design/innovation.

Thoughts on checkbox controls in iOS7 Apps

As there is no checkbox control in iOS, it always become a bit of an issue on how to mimic that functionality in an app or in a mobile site. The Apple HIG is strangely silent on the issue, other than offering up a segmented control that will only accept a single choice. That's fine for a radio group, but doesn't work for something where you want someone to check a box before continuing, like accepting terms and conditions.

Looking for an updated college list that offer Masters In Interaction Design / HCD - Etc..

I've been searching high and low for a good list of colleges that offer an all Online Only Masters in the UX, UI, Interaction design field.  

Anyone know of or have a list? There was one on here at one time but it doesn't seem to be update.

 

Thanks!

 

Also -  I updated my password on the IXDA site, and noticed that it violates the first rule of forms in regards to password. It didn't tell me I couldn't use special characters. Took me several times to get updated, before I just guessed that was the reason it was blowing.

Ajax product configurator examples

I'm helping a friend who has a small business (total employees: 1, total
budget: $0 or maybe less) brainstorm ideas for a custom product configurator
for his website. Similar sites might allow you to see the clothes on a model
and change shirt colors, add various designs to a t-shirt, or customize your
new Mercedes colors, wheels, etc. He's curious to find out if this sort of
product configuration can be done well using Ajax/Web 2.0 technologies.

UX Roadmaps

I manage a small UX team within the Product department of a .com. As
part of the overall company strategy each department leader has been
tasked with creating a (gulp) 5 year road map of their respective
departments. I'm not a business school grad and have only seen road
maps and have never created one. Has anyone out there done such a
thing for a UX group and if so do you have any advice or resources
that might help me out.

I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks,
Chip

Form Validation

Hi,

I'm looking for any advices/articles on form validation.
I tried to search on gamma.ixda.org, but found nothing there.

1. What is the preferable placement for error message for particular control?
2. Any guidelines on error message text. Like what is better -- "This
field is required" or "Please enter your email"?

Any additional information on subject is highly apreciated.

Thank you.

Frameworks for rapid prototyping with HTML, CSS and JavaScript

Hi all,

I've been researching a bit on what is the best for rapid prototyping using HTML, CSS, JavaScript.

Until now I was using Balsamiq Mockups, Axure and tools like that but recently I've realized that for some purposes could be appropriate to use "handmade" HTML with style and interactions and refine it and add interactions throught an iterative process.

But I think for rapid prototyping a framework is needed and have to exists already some goods alternatives that make the life easier to designers/developers.

What would you recommend in those cases?
