With just a week to go we've still got some tickets for edUi 2012 (http://eduiconf.org) available. We sold out last year and we'd love to repeat that success again this year. We still have space in three of our workshops: LeanUX, jQuery, Web Accessibility (one is included with your registration).

I've been asked to give a presentation on the fundamentals/theory of UI design for our game development artists. It's a tricky thing, especially since our artists range in experience from decades to new hires. The idea is that our game artists produce UI's all the time as part of their games, and could benefit from learning some basics that might either help them understand the things they do or help them create better solutions.
Intercom is going really well for us. So much so that we need help. Our design team previously consisted of myself & Eoghan. But we can't give design or UI the time it deserves any more. We've recently hired a fantastic visual designer, and we're looking to pair him with a fantastic UX person. The role is pure UX, no clients, pitches, or proposals. You'll be working with our visual designer, myself and Eoghan (CEO) to make Intercom the most usable beautiful web application in the space.
