I’m excited to be registered for UPA 2012. Lots of great user research presentations, but also more on UX and Design in general than I’ve seen in the past. (It’s been a while…) Curious who else is going… Let me know: borenmt at ldschurch org !

Jared Spool is giving a free presentation titled “Anatomy of a Design Decision” in three cities: Portland (April 13), Seattle (April 15), and Minneapolis (April 28). (Pre-registration is required, but free. Beware the maps, however—as a University of Washington alumnus, I noticed that the Seattle location is off by a few miles.)

Assuming this is a version of his presentation at UIE, this is worth your while if you’re in one of those areas. Here’s his summary: “The best designs come from not one, but hundreds of well-made decisions. The worst designs arise out of hundreds of poorly-made decisions. All that stands between you and a great design is the quality of your decisions. Where do they come from?”

Several of us will be attending UI13 in Boston this next week. If you are attending as well, keep an eye out for our ugly mugs (except the girls of course) and make sure to say hi. We’d love to meet any other LDS designers in the community (or non-LDS that follow us), and you know… we are always hiring so ask about how what it’s like to work for the church or whatever else you want to ask :)
