Edinburgh here we come…

Summertime in Scotland:

Paula de Matos and I have just been notified that our interactive workshop session will be going ahead at this year’s UX Scotland conference.  The event is taking place on 19-20 June at the “Our Dynamic Earth” venue in Edinburgh.

Our tutorial session: A Survival Guide for UX in Complex Environments

In our session, we aim to provide insights into how you can approach user experience design problems in complex fields with confidence.  The examples we draw on are based on our background working in various settings including scientific research, pharmaceutical R&D and IT/technology.

As part of the workshop we will be delivering is a hands-on tutorial, where participants will learn about a novel card sorting technique that Paula and I have devised (and written about in a recent paper).  Using this approach, you can start to prioritise and organise large numbers of data items into more meaningful ‘zones’, which in turn can feed into the design of a website, service or product.

Building on past success

The planned workshop is adapted from the sell out session we ran at UX Cambridge 2013.  Let’s hope this time it won’t be 30 degrees on the day – unlikely I know, given that the record high (ever in June) is 27.8 degrees (according to Wikipedia, anyway).

Well, see you there! Bye for now/ Slàn leat!
