IxDA NL and Chi Nederland, the Dutch local chapter of ACM SIGCHI, organize an international conference on interaction design. This event, by the name of 'Design by Fire conference', offers an inspiring stage for interaction, information, interface and experience designers.
After the success in 2007 a second edition was inevitable. We are very pleased with the speakers on the program for this year:
:: Brendan Dawes, Creative Director for magneticNorth (UK), will take care of an inspiring keynote titled 'C30, C60, C90, GO!'.
Our Marketing dep't wants me to do "usability testing" at an upcoming user conference -- a gathering of our software users. The conference's purpose: for users to improve their software skills and to learn about upcoming product advancements.
I proposed a card sort, because it's low-tech, relatively quick, and needs little setup. This meets y needs (I have something I need sorted), but does not meet the conference goals; it won't help users improve their skills or learn about upcoming product advancements. So it got lots of thumbs down.
Jim Ungar (IxDA member) and I will be giving a few different talks
(one in a workshop, and one case study presentation) about using
studio approach to design to facilitate UCD in Agile software
If anyone is planning on going, let me know and let's think about
getting together one evening. Registration will open next week, I
believe. I'm looking forward to this conference, to say the least.
