UX Intensive

There were a lot of interesting and challenging ideas that came up at UX Week in San Francisco this year. But it’s clear to me that the ideas were only part of the value. This year we set aside two whole afternoons for workshops that allowed people to put these ideas into practice. Personally, I found that to be the most rewarding experience of the conference. There’s something about getting a bunch of smart and talented people in a room to really engage with each other and a set of ideas that seems to be the real core of pushing the field of user experience forward.

That’s why I’m so excited that we are hosting two more of our UX Intensive workshops this year. The whole idea behind them is to engage the most compelling and influential ideas we’ve come across in our work in a hands-on workshop setting. But rather than 3 hours like we had at UX Week, we spend a whole day on each of four major UX topics: Design Strategy, Design Research, Information Architecture, and Interaction Design.

We already announced our workshop in Copenhagen, October 13-16. We’ve got a great set of attendees already but there are still plenty of seats left. Use the code BLOG to get a 10% discount.

Now we’d also like to announce that we’re hosting an Intensive workshop in Austin, TX, December 8-11. We opened a new studio in Austin at the beginning of 2008 and things are going pretty darn well, thank you. We decided to close out the year with this great event. Come celebrate our second home town, connect with other practitioners, and we’ll push our UX skills to the next level. Or just leave winter behind and come eat some barbeque. Mmm, barbeque. BLOG will get you a 10% discount for Austin too.
