UX Design Slam for World Usability Day

We plan to 'design slam' for 3 hours. The theme this year is EDUCATION: Designing for Social Change. Visit the World Usability Day website for more information.


NOTE: We'll be meeting prior to this (Monday, November 7th) to have a quick brainstorming session to get some ideas on the table and give us a few days to get any materials we might need. So if you'd like to be apart of that, meet at Habanero - 1420, 144 - 4th Ave SW.

    Great event -- fun to meet creative people and be able to work on a project together. Looking forward to future meetups! Thanks Meghan!

    Oh, that's what UXD stands for! This was a GREAT meet-up and I'd do it again. Meghan Armstrong was a perfect host for the event and I felt comfortable immediately upon arriving with her help. I work out of my home studio and getting out into an incredible and energizing environment to challenge my creative spirits was just what I need. User Experience Design is not my forte' but understanding the development and processes makes me a better Web and graphic designer. Thanks for having me and I hope I can come again.

    Food/Sustenance to keep us going!
    Everyone agreed to pitch in for pizza at the event on Thursday - that way we don't have to try to squeeze in dinner before the design slam.

    Huge thank you to all that made it out on Monday brainstorm! Looking forward to having a few more people join us on Thursday.
    The themes that bubbled to the top were:
    Connections: Disparate creative communities are doing great things around Calgary but aren't necessarily well connected to each other.
    Moderating time: In today's culture, we are unaware of how much time is spent on different aspects of our lives. Would awareness help us prioritize and regulate the time spent on activities?

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight for a quick brainstorm. Let me know if you are going to be later than 6pm as we will have to make other arrangements so that you can get to the office.
