RE: [IxDA] Wireframes and prototypes: a waste of time?

What is the level of experience that the programmer has?  I ask because it sounds to me like a statement that would come from a programmer that has enough experience to not be considered entry level but not enough to be considered senior.  They are extremely comfortable in their understanding of what they do but don't have the knowledge or experience to understand the "bigger picture" and how the process

What is the Best Practice for Usability Testing aRegistration Process.

Hi Paul,

You have different scenarios, or you have different designs? I'm not
sure how you would test for validity of a scenario with usability
testing -- in that case it sounds like you'd want to do contextual work
to see if you find your scenarios 'in the wild.' But if what you really
mean is that you have three slightly different designs, then you're
right, you shouldn't test all three designs with the same individual.
What this means, of course, is tripling the number of tests you need to
do. For that reason, I probably wouldn't take the time to test all

True or False: In a perfect world we'd all create html clickable wireframes after the static ones have been don

This seems to be a never-ending discussion, regarding methods of
design and development. I contract to have certain system/apps that
I've designed prototyped, but certainly not all nor even the majority.

I work on wireframes, graphical layouts and keyframes, intensive
flows, and comprehensive implementation documentation, and have done
so for numerous OS GUIs (starting back in the 80s), lots of medical
equipment and devices, complex military systems, and so many mobile
device, phone, smartphone, and media players that I can't even count

Can anyone offer advice on setting up my first conference?

Hi all,

I'm hoping to organise a conference here in the UK, around UX issues in general, and I was wondering if I could tap into the experience of anyone on the list who's been involved in them before - I know that plenty of you have.

I'm looking to create something that's professional but not too expensive for those who come along.

Guidance for local leaders?

I'm curious if IxDA has any official guidance for local leaders, or is this just completely ad hoc?

I'm happy to wing it, but if there are any by-laws, organizing principles, governing structures, or efforts to impose consistency from above, I'd love to know about them.
