I’m off to a couple conferences in the next few months:
The IDEA Conference is a yearly conference about Information: Design, Experience and Access that is sponsored by the Information Architecture Institute. I’m looking forward to seeing David Armano (Critical Mass), Chris Crawford, Bill DeRouchey, Dave Gray, Andrew Hinton and Edwina von Gal.
This Canadian UX conference is a great opportunity to meet other UX peers, hear some interesting speakers and maybe even learn some new approaches.
From Jess McMullin:
CanUX, the Canadian User Experience Workshop, runs November 16-18 in Banff, AB. This year we’ve got a great lineup of hands-on sessions with folks like Dave Gray (Xplane), Luke Wroblewski (Yahoo!) and Brandon Schauer (Adaptive Path). We’ve also got sessions from the Banff Executive Leadership program, a better method for designing with developers from Vancouver’s own Jerome Ryckborst, and how-to on nForm’s award-winning Swimlanes deliverable with more speakers to be announced soon. We’re also bringing back the Design Slam and our Show and Tell reception where you can show off your work and learn from others.
All of this for $899+GST, an all-inclusive price that covers two nights of accommodations and meals on site. That’s less than many other events charge in fees alone. To make the deal that much sweeter for you, our west coast friends, the discount code ‘vanue’ saves $50 so you pay only $849+tax.
On top of a great program, we’re also tossing in a copy of nForm and Adaptive Path’s latest books: Tagging, and Subject to Change, along with our regular sponsor prize giveaways.
We keep attendance capped at 70 so that participants get to spend plenty of time with speakers and each other in a casual setting. Last year we sold out, so register soon to confirm your seat.
