"Affordances Demystified"
In interaction design, the word “affordance” is often used to describe something that helps, aids or makes it possible for a user to do something. But what are the different types of affordances? And how should we factor them into our daily HCI/ UX design activities? With several decades in the business, Rex Hartson and Pardha Pyla know a lot about user experience. In fact, this talk is based on a chapter in their recent publication, The UX Book: Process and Guidelines for Ensuring a Quality User Experience. This new book is a comprehensive, practical field guide to understanding, assimilating, and applying the complete interaction design discipline. On April 30th, Rex and Pardha will discuss the different kinds of affordances and how they help in designing for a quality user experience.

Expected audience: Anyone interested in designing interaction between humans and systems or products for a quality user experience.

Takeaway concept: Learn about the different kinds of affordances and how to take them into account in your interaction designs.
