ACM SF Bay Area Chapter Mtg: Conceptual Models: Core to Good Design (Non Hosted)

Conceptual Models: Core to good design

People make use of software applications in their activities, applying them as tools in carrying out tasks. That this use should be good for people -- easy, effective, efficient, and enjoyable -- is a principal goal of design. In this talk, we briefly present the notion of Conceptual Models, and argue that Conceptual Models are core to achieving good design.
Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Speaker: Jeff Johnson and Austin Henderson

    I Thought its going to be in San Jose. I work by Hamilton Ave, and I get out @ 6:30. I'm not too sure I'm going to make it. That's too bad, that would have worked out well. Looking forward for the next meeting.

    Is this in San Jose (as listed here) or Palo Alto (as listed on the link to ACM)?

    Location for tonight ... the ACM page indicates this is being held at HP in Palo Alto but this announcement indicates it's being held in San Jose. Which is correct?

    Sorry for the last minute drop out, but I am building a prototype and we are bring test users into the lab next week, and we had a few design changes last night. I would love to be a part of the conversation. Next time I am there.
