UPA North

I went to the inaugural meeting of the Usability Professionals Association – North of England (UPA North) tonight.

It was a great meeting. Andy Swartz and David Hawdale organized and presided. There was a detailed demo of eye tracking technologies from Ian James of EyeTracker and some good discussion from a group of interesting people.

I caught up with some old friends and met a bunch of new people.
As David pointed out, the people who attended had quite a diverse cross-section of job titles and skills, with different interests and from different fields. It illustrated just how all embracing the concept of usability is. There are a lot of people who have a legitimate interest in making their products more usable.

We hope to have another get together soon. I’m looking forward to it.
