UX Australia

The first ever UX Australia Conference is coming up in August in Canberra. Donna, Steve, Andrew and Danielle have a great line-up of speakers from Australia and overseas.

Oh, and me.

I’m doing 3 presentations (gulp!):

1. Pre-conference Workshop: Interaction Design Studio

This Half-day workshop focuses on building skills generating and critiquing user interface design solutions. It’s fast paced, with minimal lecturing and we usually have a lot of fun learning from each other as much as anything.

Warning – this workshop contains crayons!

2. 101 Things I (Should Have) Learned at Interaction Design School

In this presentation, Matt Morphett are going out on a bit of a limb. The idea is to see if we can use the tips from the book “101 Things I Learned at Architecture School” to ad-lib some corresponding tips for interaction designers. Should be fast paced again, and best of all, perilous.

3. Designing for multitouch, and multiple touchpoints

In this talk I’ll tease out more of our experiences designing the Microsoft Surface Proof of Concept for Lonely Planet which we presented at Remix last month. Get ready for a '’warts and all’” account!

See You There

This conference marks an important milestone in the increasing visibility of User Experience as a discipline in Australia. I for one think it’s going to be the start of something big. So if you are interested in information architecture, user interface design, usability or anything to do with User Experience, I think Canberra is going to be the place to be from 26-28 August. See you there!
