September IA and Content Strategy Meetup

Lynne Polischuik will be discussing contracting and freelancing for UX at this meetup. Lynne will cover the practical and personal considerations of being an indie designer, including how to get over the fear of making the jump, where and how to find clients, managing the business side of design, and what it's like to work alone.

This meetup group follows this format: 6-6:30 networking, 6:30-7ish, the short talk and questions, 7-8, more discussion in groups or among yourselves about the topic. You can think of this IA/CS meetup as an informal talk with a lot of discussion. There's no slideshow, more like an intimate talk among 20 peers with some drinks and dinner. I hope you'll join us!

    Hi Shahrzad, Welcome! "RSVP" just let's us know if you'll be coming to the meetup: YES, if you plan to come and NO if you don't. This is a meetup group for information architects and content strategists. I just wanted to be clear so you don't end up at the wrong place if you're an architect that designs buildings!

    Hi Martin, Content Strategy is a way to ensure that an organization's content (or web content) meets both business and user needs. It looks at how content is designed, structured, developed, maintained, and evaluated. It includes content usability, process and governance, how content needs to be prepared to support associated strategies such as x-channel, accessibility, social, etc. Collaboration between CS and IA is super valuable, so we're hoping to get some good conversations started. :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
