Date: May 26th 2015


For our final event of the 2014-2015 season, we are pleased to welcome as our speaker, local UX guru, Dominira Saul, Chief Experience Architect at Akendi. Dominira will be discussing Designing for Usability in the Internet of Things (IoT) Era, a hot topic and one that will lead in directly to our big kickoff event for next season - IoT613! You'll be hearing a lot more about IoT613 in the coming weeks, but on June 16th, Dom will be providing the appetizer to what will be a very satisfying IoT meal come September.

Date: Tuesday June 16th, 2015
Time: doors open at 6:00 pm; debate begins at 6:30 pm
Place: The upstairs room at The Fox & Feather Pub and Grill, located at 283 Elgin St, Ottawa, ON, Canada (foxandfeather.ca).

As usual, doors open for complimentary appetizers and networking opportunities at 6:00pm, with the presentation beginning at 6:30. We invite you stay after the presentation for more great food, drink, and networking. As always, our partners at The Fox & Feather will be providing our attendees with 10 percent off food and non-alcoholic drinks.

Presentation Synopsis:

While the tools and techniques that we employ as researchers and designers are largely unchanged, we are being forced to broaden our focus. As designers will be required to think in terms of service design and multi-modal interaction as many tasks and interactions associated with IoT span devices and contexts.
