The German UPA hosted the World Usability Day in Berlin this year on November 11 as part of a larger World Usability Day 2010 that took place across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The theme was communication, specifically how our communication methods impact technological developments and information services now as well as into the future. Said Elizabeth Rosenzweig, a founding member of the event, “World Usability Day 2010 will serve as an impetus to creating greater awareness for designs, products and services that improve and facilitate communication around the world.”
Berlin’s World Usability Day focused on mobile communication, specifically how Smartphones, iPads, laptops, etc. affect communication in our daily lives and the resulting implications, risks and benefits, for UX design and usability. If you are a part of the creative industry or are simply interested in usability, the World Usability Day is a must. So, as a worthwhile investment put it on your agenda for next year. Pidoco was proud to support World Usability Day 2010 as a sponsor and we will be on the scene again next year. We hope to see you there!
