We have plenty of room for more RSVPs, so please come! All the
information is at our Meetup site: http://www.meetup.com/LA-UPA/
There may not be any events in Pittsburgh to commemorate this year's World Usability Day on Thursday, November 11, but there are plenty of events online. Be sure to check out http://www.worldusabilityday.org/events/2010/online-only for online activities that focus on this year's theme, communication.
Be sure to also take advantage of these special offers featuring usability tools:
User Friendly 2010, whose theme is “Embracing Asian Culture”, is UPA China’s seventh annual UX conference. It will take place in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, from Nov 12th - 14th, 2010.
Over the past decade, UX has been gradually gaining recognition throughout Asia. Although it is still a relatively new term in the region, Asian businesses are now beginning to see the importance of good usability, and the UX market is steadily maturing.
Just wanted to invite everyone who's holding on to great research findings or really cool case studies, or even radical new theories in the field of UX and IxD to submit a presentation for UXLx: User Experience Lisbon 2011. This is your chance to present to an international audience of 500 people from all over the world.
