What is World Usability Day?
World Usability Day is an annual event occurring around the world, bringing together communities and people interested in improving online user experience.
What’s going on in Bristol?
World Usability Day Bristol is a day of celebration, inspiration, networking and education.
A day of seminars from some of the most interesting and significant people in UX and design, speaking on a variety of topical subjects from the world of user experience.
|Alistair Duggin||BBC Olympics: An Accessibility Study||How do you make a website as ambitious as the BBC Olympics accessible? This presentation shares the challenges faced, approaches used and lessons learned.|
|Claire Rowland||UX design for the internet of things||Connectivity, sensing and intelligence are becoming embedded in ever more physical objects, enabling new ways of understanding and engaging with the world around us. To date, much of the focus in this field has been around solving connectivity challenges, but as the technology matures, understanding how to create compelling and usable everyday applications for mass market users will be crucial to success. How is UX design changing as it moves beyond the screen and into the objects around us?|
|Dan Klyn||Practical Abstraction -Ensuring Usability and Transcending Usage with Information Architecture||Typical approaches to usability get played out in terms of design: solutions engineered to afford certain kinds of use are analysed, and the underlying systems and corresponding interactions are optimized.|
|Dylan Thomas||Dark Patterns||Dark patterns are anti-patterns with a nefarious purpose - intentionally flawed designs. Carefully-crafted ‘bad’ designs; built with a pinch of psychology and a healthy dose of trickery. This is an introduction to this interesting, and often fun, side of web design and some of the methods used by companies to swindle and snare their users. This is not user-centred design!|
|Jason Hobbs||Navigating complexity: A Case Study||The proliferation of complex problems in a world of increasing indeterminacy requires new approaches that address the new demands on stakeholders, educators, practitioners and theorists of design. In this presentation, information architecture is repositioned for this purpose through a case study of the application of user journey design in an international banking project.|
|Oli Shaw||You don't know me better than I know myself||We can track almost anything we want, and we are being tracked by others much more then we care to acknowledge, both in the digital realm and in the physical one. In the dark matter of the data shadows created from our tracked activities comes 'Ambient personalisation' and with it anticipatory services, not all these services are new, some we have been using and rely upon every day. What happens when our 'smart' things can anticipate our needs before we know what we want?.|
