Only two weeks to the start of our UX training event being held in central London. UxFest consists of four one-day courses, so you can attend just one or all four. We have substantial discounts on booking three or more places. Plus bookings can be made across all of our London courses including two new offerings: Persona-Driven Design (now a two-day course) and Ecommerce User Experience. Places booked can also be shared between participants, so book all four days of UxFest and have a different person attending each day.
UxFest London, 7-10 February 2011: Four Days of UX, IA and UCD
James Kalbach, the author of O’Reilly’s Designing Web Navigation, is joining me in presenting four days of cutting-edge courses on UX, UCD and IA in London, starting 7 February.
The courses are:
Mon Dynamic User Experience: Ajax Design & Usability (WH)
Tue Agile UX & UCD (WH)
Wed Designing Web Navigation (JK)
Thu Faceted Search & Beyond (JK)
The AjaxDesign and Usability course explains the main differences between Ajax and static HTML (for a non-technical audience) and looks at how to make web sites and intranets more dynamic while improving user experience and accessibility. Agile UX & UCD looks at how to incorporate user experience, usability and user-centred design into an Agile environment. It is intended primarily for experienced UX practitioners, although only a limited understanding of UX is essential.
In his two courses – Designing Web Navigation and Faceted Search – O’Reilly author James Kalbach covers current thinking in Information Architecture and the changing face of web navigation.
Following UxFest will be a two-day workshop on Persona-Driven Designon 21 March. Participants will spend about 50% of their time making sense of user research and then developing personas and interaction designs using a variety of user-centred techniques. It’s suitable for a broad audience, from interaction designers and developers through to project managers and Scrum masters. In April is a brand new course, Ecommerce User Experience, based on our extensive benchmarking experience. Participants will learn how to assess and improve their designs.
Two of our courses – Agile UX & UCD and Card Sorting – are featured in the tutorial programme for CHI 2011 in Vancouver. The courses programme should be on the conference web site fairly soon – www.chi2011.org
Drop us a line if you need a course you don’t see on our site (see our course schedule) or would like to run one or more in-house, anywhere in the world.
