IxDA Vancouver is excited to welcome world renowned speaker Eric Reiss to Vancouver on October 10th! Join us for an entertaining evening with Eric as he shares his techniques and hard won advice for improving the overall quality of your user’s experience--giving us a sneak preview of his newly published book Usable Usability: Simple Steps for Making Stuff Better and demonstrating how you can understand users’ needs and exceed their expectations. Eric’s talk will be followed by a book signing and social hour at the Railway Club on Dunsmuir Street. We will have a limited number of books for sale at the event, but you can pre-order yours from Amazon now.
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.
This event will be a great opportunity to re-connect with your local UX and IxD contacts after a busy summer and hear about all the interesting things on tap for Fall/Winter 2012. Hope to see you there!
