[Event] IxDA NYC presents UX Show and Tell with Chris Avore
7 Dec 2009 - 12:49pm
IxDA NYC is pleased to present
UX Show and Tell with Chris Avore
UX Show and Tell is a casual workshop that’s all about the work, where you
get feedback on your UX, IA and IxD deliverables from practitioners instead
Because let's face it: even the most involved practitioners of the UX
community have few places to share work with other helpful colleagues in a
face to face environment.
Even if you don't have something to show, help your fellow IA's, designers,
and researchers by sharing solutions with those who are showing work.
There will be three rooms to keep the number of people small and facilitate
discussion. Each person gets about ½ hour. They begin by providing a
background on the project and the deliverable or document he or she will
show. Presenters then identify whether they're providing work that addressed
a unique problem that others could benefit learning from, or they state the
problem or issue they're facing and ask the group for help. The next 15 to
20 minutes are spent walking through the document and how others have solved
similar problems. The remaining half is reserved for feedback and
discussion. We plan on having 3 – 5 presentations per room depending how
quick each one is.
If you are interested in showing your work please contact us at nyc.ixda at gmail.com. We're looking for 9 – 15 people to share their work.
Work can be any type of deliverable or artifact, such as personas,
wireframes, scenarios and user stories, concept models, site maps,
prototypes, content strategy, sketchboards, design process, your portfolio,
your resume, so forth. We need people with work in different formats, we'll
have projector in one room, a large LCD in another, and the third will not
have something to display.
Free and open to everyone interested however tickets are required.
IMPORTANT!! Seating is limited. So you must have a ticket to attend. Please
only RSVP if you know you can attend.
Cancellations: Please email us (nyc.ixda at gmail.com) as soon as you know you
cannot use your ticket. We'll release your seat for one of your fellow
practitioners and generate good IxD karma for all involved!
