Having worked with HFI and having been an integral team member at some point in my career, I am in complete agreement with Eric. HFI is a place where everyone breathes UX. They strive hard to bring UX to the industry.
I remember Eric mentioning in one of his talk to the staff - 'Whenever I go to any company in India, I meet people who have worked with HFI at some point. I am glad that we have been able to educate people and spread Usability in the Industry'.
Thanks to Eric and team for all the hard work. ~ Neha M.
