[EVENT] NYCUPA - Case Study: UX Designer Re-Invents Video Content Management System That Enables Employees To Go Home At a Reasonable Hour - 5/17

Dmitry Zak, User Experience Team Manager for Digital Products & Services at NBC Universal, had a proven track record for creating user-friendly experiences and products within his company. Last year, a project was proposed which was the most ambitious yet: improving the user interface for CNBC’s complex video publishing system. While legal constraints don’t allow him to disclose deep metrics, he will share the project’s process, which began with the motivation to improve users’ quality of life.

UX Brunch Baltimore!

Let's brunch together! Since Jeff Parks and I will be in Baltimore the weekend of 22-24 April for Rush (the band, Friday night) and the game (O's v. Yanks, Saturday night), we thought, "hey, let's get together & brunch on Saturday with some UXers in the area!"

Thus was UX Brunch Baltimore (#UXBrunchBalto on the Twitterz) born.

So, who's in? Who can arrange a place for us around 11:00 a.m.? Probably 15 folks? In walking distance perhaps from Aliceanna Street (between Fells Point & the Harbor)? Or a cab ride?

UX Midwest Rocked!

What a great conference! Fabulous lineup, great volunteers, and hospitable city. This event proves the power of IxDA local groups as well as the benefit of partnering with other orgs. Oh, and also that not all design is done in NYC or Cupertino. ;)

[EVENT] NYCUPA - A Discussion On The Future Of Financial Services For The Retail Customer, With Ted Booth - February 15, 2011 06:00 PM - 08:30 PM

 

The customer experience for a retail banking or credit card consumer may have never been as bad as it now. The government did what it could to help an industry that basically imploded, intervening particularly on behalf of consumers to protect their rights. But by the time the dust settled, people’s faith in their banks, credit card companies, and lenders had been severely –and in many cases, irreparably– damaged. This unfortunately comes at a time when people need more help than ever with managing their finances and staying out of debt.

[WORKSHOP] NYCUPA - Saturday Workshop: An Intro To Eye-Tracking Technology, with Leslie Chacon - February 19, 2011 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

User First provides monthly education sessions on eye tracking and web analytics, minus the sales pitch. Workshop leader and UX advocate Leslie Chacon, founder of User First, will begin by explaining the technology of the equipment and methods of design, followed by the metrics and data that is delivered, plus a live demo with 1-2 volunteers from the audience.

A note from NYC UPA President Gloria Petron:

Leslie has assured me that neither she nor her colleagues wear lab coats, and that there are no electrodes involved at any time.

WORKSHOP: Break the Fidelity Barrier in Interaction Prototyping with Chris Connors, Interaction Design Director, Daedalus

Low-fidelity, high-fidelity -- how can we get more specific? Chris Connors presents a set of five dimensions, along which prototypes can be planned and characterized. With an understanding of these dimensions and how to dial them in, IxD and HCI practitioners can direct scarce prototyping resources to yield specific, successful results. Mark your calendar for this talk and audience activity with Chris Connors, who has developed Mars mission planning tools at the NASA Ames HCI Group, and desktop and iPad applications at Apple.

More details coming soon.
