I thought I'd pass along this announcement to the IXDA community about
registration opening for edUi 2012. The call for
proposals is currently open as well.
What is edUi?
edUi is a conference for web professionals serving colleges,
universities, libraries, museums, and other institutions of learning.
Our focus is primarily on user interface and user experience
The 2012 conference is happening Sept. 24-26 in Richmond, VA.
My agency is losing a project manager and I was told he will not be replaced. My role as a user experience designer normally has meant that I complete my deliverables and submit them to my project manager. The void that will be left when my project manager leaves will now be filled by myself, the creative director and another person. I need help with my new duties.
I currently work with Medical Software, after having been in consumer oriented software for years. Working with SME's has proven to be very difficult as Clinicians. Developing a working relationship so that each role is getting the benefit of each others expertise, rather than dis-trusting each other is key.
Are there any great reports, experiences suggestions?
Whether you’re new to the field or you’re a design industry professional, UX Brighton 2011 is a great opportunity to debate, cogitate and learn about User Experience through the lense of various disciplines stretching from anthropology to cross-channel design.
Greetings! I am a (very recent) graduate in Software Engineering from
Sri Lanka and I wish to peruse my higher studies (postgrads) in research based
user experience design and development. Professionally I do not have any HCI,
usability or UX related work or research experience. As a matter of fact, there
are no academic or commercial user experience labs in Sri Lanka. And finding opportunity
to gain work experience on such a field is very hard here.
When it comes to to finding a job in the user experience industry, there's a lot of heartache. There are the confusing acronyms (IxD, UX, IA, etc.), and the job descriptions (like "wireframe") that mean different things to different people. How does a person transition into the field? Are you selling yourself short? How many years of experience do you need? And how much should these jobs pay?
