January Update – Agile, UX, UCD and IA Training Courses in London, Brussels and Texas

Happy New Year! Just before Christmas we launched our Spring courses in London and Brussels. Now I'm pleased to add that we have two courses running as part of the CHI 2012 Conference in Austin, Texas. Details are below and they may seem a long way off but book early to take full advantage of our various discounts and to reserve your place(s) on a course. Please note that if you are interested in the CHI 2012 courses, these must be booked through the conference web site a little closer to the time (the conference runs 4 – 10 May). See http://chi2012.acm.org (I'm the conference webmaster this year so if you have any problems or questions please let me know).


Out 2012 UxFest in London will run from 13 to 16 March (Tuesday to Friday). It consists of four one-day courses by me and O'Reilly author James Kalbach. You can book a single place on one day, plus there are special discounts for every three places booked (3 x 1 day, 1 x 3 days and other permutations) or for booking all four days. Places can be shared between team members, so you can book a place on all four days and decide who is coming later – just let us know!

The full line-up is:

13 Mar: Agile User Experience & UCD (how to fit user experience into Agile working; WH)
14 Mar: Agile Requirements (use cases, user stories, scenarios & personas in Agile; WH)
15 Mar: Alignment Diagrams (a holistic view of customer interaction and service design; JK)
16 Mar: Faceted Navigation (an example-rich study of facets and their use in navigation design; JK) 


We’re also running three days of courses In Brussels, from 23 to 25 April (Monday to Wednesday):

23 Apr: Agile User Experience & UCD (how to fit user experience into Agile working)
24 Apr: Agile Requirements (use Cases, user stories, scenarios & personas in Agile)
25 Apr: Dynamic User Experience: Ajax Design & Usability (now includes touch-screen devices) 

Our 3-for-2 discount also applies, so you can attend all three days but pay for only two.


We've had two half-day courses accepted as part of the conference programme (the full conference runs from 4 – 10 May):


  • Card Sorting for Navigation Design
  • Agile User Experience and UCD 


The dates have not been set as yet, but as with all CHI courses for the past few years, they are virtually free if you are attending the conference. Visit http://chi2012.acm.org in a few weeks for further details.

For our London and Brussels courses, visit our web site for full details and to book online.

Drop us a line (reply to this email) if you need a course you don’t see on our site or would like to run one or more in-house, anywhere in the world.
