Next meetup March 12 and we need you!
Volunteer for next month's IA meetup March 12 at Piecora's as we explore Portfolios - IA, UX, Design, Information, all portfolio types sought.
We are seeking a few more volunteers who would like to share their portfolios in small groups, walking people through what you've done and mentoring folks on how to build their own portfolios.
If you wish to volunteer, please send an email with your name, email address, phone number and a link to your portfolio and a short statement on why you'd like to participate. We'll offer spaces to those who apply first but we want to be sure you can make it that night!

Usability Testing for Everyone
A Hands-On Workshop with Fell Swoop
You can learn the basics of usability testing from books and websites - but how do you go from academic theory to doing it yourself? Join Fell Swoop for a unique one-day workshop where we take you through the process from start to finish.
Why take the workshop?
• Learn in a small group setting with experienced UX researchers.
• Facilitate a usability test with a real participant in our usability lab.
• Get hands-on experience with testing for desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
