UX Irregulars and IxDA Toronto are holding a joint event this month!
Torontonians who attended the IxDA Interaction '09 conference (http://interaction09.ixda.org/) will summarize their favourite talks and themes from the conference to bring a little bit of Interaction '09 to you.
- Sarah Toy will explore the overarching themes of designing for behaviour and social change
- Steven LeMay will summarize some of the discussion of NUIs, Microsoft Surface and gestures
- Iain Lowe will talk about design patterns
- Kaleem Khan will talk about Dan Saffer's and Bill DeRouchey's workshop Designing for Touch Screens and Interactive Gestures & emergent sustainable design themes
- Meredith Noble will review Leisa Reichelt's session on Designing with Community (with the Drupal.org community)
- Matt Nish-Lapidus will give an overview of Mark Rettig’s keynote on How to Change Important Stuff
- Kim Peter will speak about Luke Wroblewski's web forms workshop.
We will also screen one of the most inspiring keynotes from the conference, by Kim Goodwin. She talked about the sustainability of our profession and how we should be passing our craft on to others, through mentorship, internships and more.
After the event, we’ll head over to the Rivoli for refreshments and more discussion.
Everyone is welcome – bring a colleague!
– Matt, Meredith and Kaleem
About UX Irregulars
UX Irregulars are a rag-tag, fugitive fleet of user experience designers, researchers and strategists who design mostly Web interactions, but also software, and sometimes crazy things like ski hills.
Who is IxDA Toronto?
We're a group of Torontonians interested in interaction design. The group is an extension of the vibrant online Interaction Design Association community (http://www.ixda.org) but absolutely anyone interested in interaction design is welcome -- novices and experts, IxDA members and non-members.
