With Lou Rosenfeld (Polar Bear book) and Steve Krug
(Don't Make Me Think).

IxDA is holding a social Face2Face on November 11, 2008 from 5:30 - 8:00pm

Lou and Steve are coming to D.C. for 2 fantastic workshops on November 11th and 12th, and while they are here, we are happy to host a Face2Face to get together, talk User Experience, Interaction Design and Usability. IxDA D.C. has a full calendar this fall leading all the way up into the New Years so stop in and get the deal. For those that haven't - I highly recommend
registering for the workshops - it's not everyday that leaders in our field come to this town, and you don't want to miss it.

In this day-long workshop, Lou Rosenfeld-"co-author of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web and the forthcoming Search Analytics for your Site: Conversations with your customers-will combine lecture, discussion, and extensive hands-on exercises to cover the basics of site search analytics. He'll show you how spending even an hour a week analyzing your search queries can help tune and improve your site's content, navigation, metadata, and search performance, and expose new opportunities for improving your business strategy.

*Steve Krug's "Discount Usability Testing" workshop*
Washington, DC: November 12, 2008 (early bird deadline October 17) http://www.sensible.com/workshops.htmlIn In this day-long session, Steve Krug--author of Don't Make Me Think!--will teach you how to do your own low-cost/no-cost testing that's simple enough to make it a routine part of your design process. He'll provide a complete explanation of his simple, fast, and inexpensive approach to testing, demonstrated through two live
usability tests on attendees' sites. You'll have a chance to practice conducting a test on your own site, learning from Steve's advice on how to interpret your findings and decide what changes to make.

Discounts
I believe Lou and Steve are offering some kind of discount for IxD members - I will check with them and see what is up.
