Save money/time via UX Research: David Hogue, Ph.D. and tour Cerner's new UX Lab

Cerner is hosting IxDA KC's next Meetup event at its Innovation Campus where we'll be treated to an engaging discussion by David Hogue on one of the most critical and yet occasionally undervalued UX principles - interaction research – as well as an unprecedented tour of the new UX lab at Cerner. Anticipated research topics include:

* Researching optimal user interactions,
* Testing the learnability of a design,
* Researching with a limited (or no) budget,
* Measuring design success and more!

Cerner is graciously providing us with food (and maybe a few prizes)!

6:30 pm - Social & food
6:45 pm - Welcome by IxDA & Cerner
7:00 pm - Dave's talk
8:00 pm - Lab tours & social time

Parking: Please enter the campus via the Marion Park Drive entrance. Check in at the security gate on arrival and identify yourself as attending the IxDA Meetup. The guard will guide you to guest parking. A friendly Cerner associate will be waiting for you in the lobby.

    What a great event. It is always a pleasure to see where others work, and Cerner did a great job showing off the labs they have really worked hard to build.

    Great presentation, I love the applicability of measuring qualitative attributes not just to design and UX/UI, but also to fields like education.

    Great presentation -- as someone whose job touches on true UX/UI but isn't a UX/UI position, it was interesting to hear how to take the soft and squishy and turn it into actionable data. Any chance we could get the slides posted somewhere?

    David's presentation and insights, connecting with fellow UX'ers, and touring Cerner's Lab were clearly part of an evening well spent. Well done! Many thanks to all involved including the Cerner folks for being such gracious hosts.

    Fantastic talk--I loved that he showed how to connect seemingly immeasurable and intangible concepts like "the interface is intuitive" to the rigors of science and mathematics. This will help us to provide tangible metrics and results to our business owners.
