I'm giving a talk on the psychology of nerdiness and its impact on user-centred design in Hamburg on 4 November (evening), followed by a full day tutorial on Agile User Experience & UCD on the 5th. The common topic for both is that there are many factors that affect our ability to sell user experience and user-centred design into technology-driven teams and organisations, one of them being the psychological make-up of technologists themselves.
Full details of the Hamburg IxDA talk are below. The Agile UX & UCD course details can be found on our web site (it is also being run in Brussels and London over the next couple of months):
(A workshop that gives participants more experience in using some of the techniques discussed on the Agile course follows on in London in December, called Persona-Driven Design - see the courses link above.)
