UXify 2015: The Future of UX Design

Kevin Richardson, Ph.D. / Thursday, April 2, 2015

I usually write blogs with an eye toward how I see our profession progressing so this one will be a bit different. For the past 2 years, the UX Design organization here at Infragistics has hosted a local conference associated with World IA Day (held each year in February). February in NJ has never worked well for us and, after having to reschedule both of those events due to snow storms, we decided to create our own professional conference, UXify, and hold it in the spring.

Our third annual user experience event, UXify 2015, brings together the community of academics, practitioners, technologists, and business leaders for a conversation about the future of applied design, UX, content strategy and development. I hope you’ll join us for an afternoon (lunch included!) of forward-looking talks relevant to the future of User Experience Design.
