The May event for the LA UX MeetUp is confirmed. Nate Bolt, El Presidente of Bolt|Peters will be joining us to talk about his new book Remote Research. Nate has overseen hundreds of remote user research studies for Sony, Oracle, HP, Greenpeace, Electronic Arts, and others. Beginning in 2003, he led the creation of the first moderated remote user research software, Ethnio, which is being used around the world to recruit hundreds of thousands of live participants for research.
Come hang with us in San Francisco or attend remotely on May 6th from 9am - 4:30pm PST. We're holding our third Escape The Lab workshop on remote UX research methods and tools. You get hands-on training with the latest moderated and un-moderated remote UX research tools. We're the crazy authors of the new Rosenfeld book, Remote Research.

We’ve been working with Adobe, AIGA/NY & the Freelancers Union to put together a “pop-up” event of sorts. Basically it will be a 2-day series of workshops and masterclasses all focused on web interface design---called DELVE:UI (http://www.delvenyc.com).
