On February 4 2012 the new Board of Directors took effect. In doing so we said farewell to three Directors: Kendra Shimmell, Joe Sokohl, and our out-going President, Janna DeVylder.
Joe Sokohl has served on the Board of Directors for the past 2 years, filling roles in Communications and most recently as Secretary. He has worked energetically to engage with the broader UX community, strengthening our connections with other associations around the world.
The Interaction|12 conference was held in Dublin, Ireland on Feb 1-4. The event represents one of the major highlights of the Interaction Design calendar, and sees people from around the world gather together to connect, share and learn.
Hi IxDA members, friends, and discussion participants!
We're currently putting the final touches on an update to IxDA.org that is in some ways subtle, but has a few larger changes included. As we've all noticed over the last few years, some things about our current web platform work well and other haven't worked that well. The goal with the next release of IxDA.org is to fix some of these issues, make a few changes to functionality, and get us onto a new hosting and maintenance platform that will make all future updates much easier.
I want to take this opportunity to point people to our two new Silver sponsors for Interaction12 | Dublin.
First, I am really excited that SapientNitro have upgraded their sponsorship from Recruiter to Silver. There will be more annoncements soon about how they plan to add to the conference experience for attendees. Their upgrade significantly increases their contribution to the conference and demonstrates their commitment to the IxDA community. Thank you!
