September 2007: "UX ChitChat"

Posted: August 28th, 2007 | Author: | Filed under: Events | 7 Comments »

September 20, 2007
5:00 to 6:30 pm
Accelerator Centre
Meeting room #2
295 Hagey Blvd., Waterloo
UPDATE: Location confirmed, we’re at the Accelerator Centre as originally planned.

Join us on September 20 for ninety minutes of fascinating, illuminating, edge-of-your-seat… chitchat. Okay, perhaps we’re over-promising somewhat here, but with your help we could kick off the season with an energetic bang. Navid and Robert will discuss plans for upcoming events and facilitate conversations on whatever topics are of interest to the folks who attend. From the variety of people who participated last spring, we know there’ll be no shortage of things to talk about; so instead of listening to a speaker tackle a single topic in depth, you’ll get a chance to spark conversations and hear what others have to say. Wrestling with a problem and want some ideas? Read something interesting and like to share? Come on out for some quality ChitChat.

Give us a taste of what you’d like to ChitChat about!

With some advance notice, we can pull together some supporting materials. So if there’s a topic that interests you, simply add a comment to this blog posting. That lets others see what you’ve suggested and voice their support too. Here are some examples of topics, to get you thinking:

  • What’s up with people going crazy over Apple’s iPhone?
  • I’ve been hearing about Design Patterns. Anybody using them?
  • Tips for creating interactive prototypes
  • Connecting design objectives with business goals

Please toss your ideas into the comments for this post. Thanks! Hope to see you on the 20th!

Let us know about topics or speakers you're interested in

Have any specific topics you’d like covered at one of our events? Know anyone you’d like to see make a presentation? Interested in presenting something yourself?

We’d love to know your thoughts on this. Feel free to leave a comment on this blog posting so everyone else can chime in with their responses too. Or, if you prefer a more private channel, fire an email to our coordinators Robert and Navid.

Kicking off the 2007-2008 season

It’s official, folks! We’re now affiliated with both IxDA and Communitech, have over 50 people on our mailing list from last spring’s events, and are looking forward to a season of monthly events beginning in September.

Our regular meeting time will be on the third Thursday of each month, from 5:00 to 6:30. Meetings will typically be at the Accelerator Centre. However, these details may occasionally need to change, so be sure to check this site for details about each month’s events.
