10-Minute Talks on Design and Usability

We are going to start the New Year with 10-Minute Talks on Design and Usability.  In this approach, it is your chance to spend a few minute talking on a subject that interests you.  We do have a few people willing to step up to the microphone, though.

• Elisa Miller: UXPA News You Can Use

• Joshua Hall: Cross-channel Usability Testing

• Adam Hill: Design of Visualizing Data. (Big Data or Not)

• Tom Bowen: Simple HTML5 Enhancements for Mobile

• Jeff Whitfield: Introducing UX Workflows Where None Exist

• Marta Soncodi: Benefits/Challenges with Basalmiq

• Keith Anderson: Content Strategy for The Rest of Us

If you are interested in giving a quick 10-minute talk, send an email to Brian Sullivan at [masked].

We will see you there.

    The video recording of this meetup can now be viewed on YouTube:


    I am still getting a hang of this. So any feedback/suggestions are welcome. Lighting in the video is an issue and I need to fix it in the future recordings.

    Great speakers. I really enjoyed hearing about user testing across multiple platforms. I've definitely noticed a divide between users viewing multiple platforms as one and designers/developers viewing them as separate. Excellent information. Thanks!

    Quick question: Is anybody recording this talk? With a lot of people in the wait list it would be great to have this Meetup recorded and put on You Tube. If speakers or organizers are ok with it, I can record the talk , do some post video processing and upload it on You Tube. Let me know.

    • Patricia T.

      I hope you are able to record! I've had to rearrange my schedule for the next two weeks and will have to miss this. Been looking forward to all of it, but, particularly the Data Visualization talk.

      This is a free event. I will be taking small donations to offset some costs for the group. But, you do not have to put any money in the jar. I know times are tough.

      @marta: Yes even I have used Balsamiq a couple of times and it would be great to see a demo on the same.
