NH UPA June Meeting: Speed Networking & Topic Discussions - Wednesday June 25th, 6:00 PM
10 Jun 2008 - 6:28am
Kyle Pero Soucy
NH UPA is trying a new and fun meeting format for June. We're calling
the meeting format NH UPA Speed Networking - similar to speed dating,
but obviously with a different goal in mind!
All those attending the meeting will have the chance to speak with
others in a one-on-one or small group format for a short period of
time before rotating to meet with others. This will be more than just
small talk, though. After a quick introduction, the discussion will
focus on specific topics of interest relating to usability and design.
We hope the format will help attendees learn about fellow NH UPA
members, hear what others are doing, learn different viewpoints on
issues, and be inspired by other's ideas. There is no homework or
requirements for the meeting and the discussions will be open to
experienced professionals and beginners alike.
Specific Topics for Discussion may include:
Usability in Agile Software Development
Making the Business Case for User Experience Design
Preferred Prototyping Methods
Eye Tracking - Valuable or Hype?
Use of Personas
Favorite IA Methods - Card Sorting, Freelisting, Content Analysis, etc
Web Site Navigation Paradigms
Recommended Books and Learning Opportunities
AJAX and Web 2.0 Technology
