EffectiveUI, a user experience consultancy with offices in Denver, Rochester, and NYC, is hosting a day-long design thinking workshop in Manhattan on Friday, 8/15. Take the day and come practice your human-centered design skills with other current and aspiring UX'ers. This would also be a great learning experience for PMs, sales, marketing, engineers, or anyone else who works alongside UX practitioners. Registration:http://bit.ly/1rFdnTr
We live with machines all around us. The fabric of our cities is made up of connected nodes that track weather, traffic, and commerce. These machines send us messages, tell us what to wear, show us entertainment, and monitor our behaviour. Our physical world is networked and made of code, and we usually don't even notice it. This is the programmable world, a world we now live in where everything is new media.
UXLx: User Experience Lisbon is happening again 4 to 6 June 2014 and we'd like to give every IxDA'er a discount code like we do every year. Just use discount code IXDAUXLX14 when buying to get 10% off.
I'm having some technical difficulties posting a proper 'Event' for this Friday's breakfast meetup, so I'm also posting this in the discussion area.
We're meeting at Grumpy's Cafe in Cleveland (Tremont) this Friday, August 30th at 7am. Join us for casual conversation with some great people! Anyone is welcome to join, whether you're an interaction pro, or just wanting to learn more.
UPDATE: It appears the Carnegie Kitchen is closed, so we will meet at Grumpy's Cafe instead. Spread the word! Thanks!
