Celebrate World Usability Day Boston 2010
Join us for UX Trivia Night – aka “The Smackdown” – and celebrate the 6th annual World Usability Day. Sponsored by:
Whether you’re a UX novice, expert practitioner, or anywhere inbetween, this is chance to have fun, engage in good-natured competition, and learn a few things to boot. This will not be the UX SAT’s. Simply get together a team of 3-6 people, or join a pick-up team there, and give it a shot.
This year, hundreds of events will take place across the globe to raise awareness for, and celebrate, usability and user-centered design — from Australia, to Brazil, to Belarus. More on World Usability Day. Come participate in Boston’s festivities!
- Brain power only! No smartphones, dumbphones, tablets, laptops, books, etc.
- No shouting out answers
- Final decision goes to the panel of Judges. Tie breakers, crowd scoring, and other non-traditional scores are meant to keep this fun!
- Have fun!
