Who ever said summer was the time to slow down? The Local Leaders of IxDA NYC have been extra busy and are pleased to offer you THREE exciting June evening events:
Thursday, June 17
Place, Space, and the Mobile Interface (Free) Mobile devices have become always-on, hyper-connected digital extensions of ourselves. As they grow increasingly location-aware and tactile, they are transforming our perception of and interaction with the physical world. What are the new frontiers of mobile design? How can we design mobile experiences that take advantage of our changing sense of place and space and really impact the way we work and live? Presenter: Claudia Bernett, user experience designer, Method Details and registration: http://ixda-nyc-june17.eventbrite.com
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 iPad Confidential: An Interaction Design Case Study (Free) In January 2010, a select group from The New York Times was whisked to Apple headquarters in Cupertino, CA to work -- in stealth mode -- on an app that was part of the official iPad launch. Jennifer Brook, interaction designer for The New York Times iPad app, will discuss how she approached designing for the nascent platform, what she and her team have learned since their app's initial release, and how she sees the advent of the iPad impacting our work as interaction designers.

Tuesday, June 29, 2010IxDA and UPA New York Present Nate Bolt: Remote User Testing ($10 Admission)
Remote research studies allow you to recruit subjects quickly, cheaply, and immediately, giving you the opportunity to observe users as they behave naturally in their own environment. Nate will discuss how to design and conduct remote research studies, top to bottom, with little more than a phone and a laptop.
These events are free and open to all interested parties; however, pre-registration is required.
Presentations typically start at 7:00 p.m. and end by 8:30 p.m. ACT FAST! Our events typically sell out. Yes, thanks to Eventbrite, we will have a waiting list. No shows who don't release their tickets will be blacklisted. (Just kidding! Seriously though, we urge you to exercise consideration for your fellow practitioners by using -- or canceling -- your registration.)
