IxDA New York City

The IxDA New York City local group organizes monthly presentations and workshops for people interested in interaction design. Our events gather together a vibrant community of professionals who design interactive systems, services and products of all kinds: web, desktop, enterprise, mobile, consumer electronics, digitally-enhanced environments, and more. Our programming is created by a passionate group of local leader volunteers and realized through the generosity of speakers, sponsors, and host partners. While our events cater to the interaction design community, all are welcome.

Making Interaction with Government Delightful

Why should government websites and applications be dreary, hard to use, and inaccessible?

From government data hackathons to incubators like Code for America, more and more UXers are designing the tools of our civic life, and working to make them vibrant, useful, delightful experiences. We’ll look at some of the successes — and pitfalls. And think about how UX can improve civic design and what we can learn for UX when we design for the broad audience of civic design.

Do you have an example of a great government app? Drop us a line about why you think it’s great, and maybe it will show up as an example in the presentation.

World Usability Day 2014: Engagement

Engagement is the key to the success of a project. But as a UX professional, do you know how to establish a good level of engagement from your target audience – or even your own team? How about to maintain and increase the level of engagement? On this year’s World Usability Day, you will learn how your fellow UX professionals practice the art of Engagement.

Join Bloomberg, IxDA New York, NYC UXPA, and AppNexus for World Usability Day 2014. We have assembled an all-star team of UX rock stars to share their perspectives on engagement models in user experience. Each will deliver a brief presentation on their area of expertise and participate in a panel Q&A consisting of questions from the audience and from our moderator. The evening will be a night of education, debate, reflection and inspiration.
