Event: World Usability Day: Usability in Your Life and in the Products You Use

On Thursday evening, November 13, 2008, the Michigan Usability Professionals’ Association will host “Usability in Your Life and in the Products You Use”. The event is free, open to the public, and will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

How well does your product or website meet your customers’ needs and expectations? Does your product simplify or complicate your client’s workday?

Using a combination of presentations and demonstrations with products ranging from alarm clocks to speeding cars to the high tech hands free voice activated SYNCH that was jointly developed by Ford and Microsoft, attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of the value of designing an excellent, compelling, and safe user experience into products. It will also drive home the point that usability is a rigorous design practice that is applied to much more than just web sites.

Usability in Your Life and in the Products You Use is one of many events around the world on World Usability Day, November 13, features speakers from the worlds of software development and technology integration.

This event will equip you with an overview of how to listen to your users and find out what they need. It is perfect for people and companies interested in making products that really work for users.
