Topic: "User-Centered Design 101: Bringing Usability to a Product Near You"

About the Event

Everyone's talking about it: software that's too hard to use, e-commerce sites where you can't place an order, programs that force you to work just like someone else. But what can you do about it? The answer is "plenty." User-centered design does just what it says: puts the needs of the user in the center of the design process. Come learn how you can use it to make your products more usable, whether you are just learning about usability or looking for ways to expand your existing process.
