Please join the LA UX Meetup as we present an evening with Eric Reiss to celebrate the publication of his new book, Usable Usability: Simple Steps for Making Stuff Better -- now available on Amazon. Eric, a world renowned presenter will be sharing his experience of how to understand user’s needs, techniques for exceeding user's expectations, and a host of hard won advice for improving the overall quality of a user’s experience. The talk will be followed by a book signing and social time.
Eric Reiss has been meddling with service- and product-design projects for longer than he cares to remember. Today, he is CEO of The FatDUX Group, an international user-experience design company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Eric has also lectured on design principles at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, is a former Professor of Usability and Design at the IE Business School in Madrid, and serves on the advisory boards of several universities and institutes in both Europe and the United States. His Web Dogma, a design philosophy that transcends both fashion and technology, has been adopted by 1000s of developers and companies around the world.
