Hot on the heels of a visit to the fascinating DRIVE Lab last month at the
University of Guelph, the Waterloo IxDA face-to-face has lined up what
promises to be another great lab tour -- this time thanks to the folks at
Research In Motion (RIM).
Great news: IxDA LA is back in the saddle and ready for its first event in
over 2 years!
*Methodology Madness!* A good methodology can help you organize your
thoughts and, ideally, help you design better products. However, with so

David Malouf will be in Boston tonight and joining us for our social at the
Asgard! He'll be sharing a few of his own stories about the conference and
of IxDA in general.

conversation for all to participate. The success of these events is easily
