How to find us

We meet in the programming room at the back of the store. Ada's doesn't have parking, so if you drive you'll have to face the dreaded Capitol Hill street parking situation. The #10 bus from downtown stops right next to the store.

Here's the description for “Conversational Design”:

"How do we make digital systems feel less robotic and more real? Whether you work with interface or visual design, front-end technology, or content design, learn why conversation is the best model for creating device-independent, human-centered systems. Research and information design expert Erika Hall explains what makes an interaction truly conversational and how to get more comfortable using language in design. From understanding the human interface, to effectively using the power of personality, to getting it all done, you’ll find out how the art of communication can elevate technology.”
