World Usability Day: Join Fathom and NEOUPA at Dave & Buster’s

By | November 2, 2011

If you like pool and Pac-Man as much as you like socializing with usability professionals, then we’ve got the event for you! Next Thursday, November 10, is NEOUPA‘s celebration of World Usability Day (WUD)—(registration link). The daylong local event takes place at Dave & Buster’s in Westlake, with a morning hands-on workshop featuring Dr. Susan Weinschenk’s research on unconscious mental processing and its implications for website design.

After Dr. Weinschenk shares practical applications of the latest neuroscience research, the rest of the day’s schedule includes:

  • Afternoon breakout sessions (including Fathom’s Patricia McCune on email usability and Kurt Krejny on social media success)
  • Event drawings
  • Social hour with cash bar & optional gameplay–what I’m calling the WUD “after-party”–officially until 8:00 p.m.

By the way, NEOUPA stands for “Northeast Ohio Usability Professionals’ Association.” The event costs $130 for non-members or $99 for NEOUPA members.

Register for WUD here.

Fathom is proud to be a “gold sponsor” of this local celebration of the 7th annual global WUD (not to be confused with WMD).
