Any advice for how to transition from UI dev to UX career?

I am at a crossroads in my career. I have been a UI Developer for 15 years and I am a capstone away from graduating with a masters in HCI. Should I look to internships as a way to get into a full time UX position or should I apply for entry level UX positions (as long as I can show related experience)? Internships seem like a great way to get introduced to a company, but I am worried that internships are only for people in their 20s. I am in my late 30s and the clock is ticking.

Interested in HTML Prototyping? Start here.

Hi there,

If you're interested in prototyping in HTML (because, you know, it's the way of the future, and you don't want to get left behind), but don't know where to start, I just wrote a post that you should find helpful:

The Four-Minute* (HTML) Prototype

It shows you how to prototype a web page easily and quickly. And the best bit? You don't need any prior knowledge of HTML or CSS.

Hope you enjoy it,

Martin

MSc User Experience Kingston University

Hi,

I have been looking into the Masters in User Experience Design in Kingston University.  I was wondering does any one have any experience of it?  Good, bad or indifferent?

http://www.kingston.ac.uk/postgraduate-course/user-experience-design-msc/

I know it has recently chaged from being an MA and MSc to just being an MSc.  My background is in design and advertising and although I would like to know all apsects of the field research etc, I would not like it to be at the expense of my strengths ie. design.

IX and UX industry in Berlin

Hello all,

I just move to Berlin and I would like to start to explore what has to offer in IX and UX areas. I'm an HCI master student and I need to start to look for a place where to do an intership, and after that a Matser thesis with a company. Start ups could be as well an option.

So, I would like to hear some advices from someone of you who knows a little much better the Industry.

Or if someone know such a great Design firms or Companies in other European cities where could be worth it to do an internship, it will be great as well.

Thanks!

Animation for Interaction Design

I'm looking for resources or materials on "Animation for Interaction Designers".

As an interaction designer, particularly for digital experience designs, I feel there is a need to understand basic animation principles to better handle page transitions, UI element movements and animated data visualizations or so on.

It would be really glad if anyone can help me with articles or online resources on the same.
