Age of User Experience - Brisbane / Sydney (APRIL)
Just a quick reminder to one and all, that Shane Morris & I will be introducing Microsoft's strategy around User Experience. The focus will be on what designers need to know about our tools (interaction designers, web designers, information architects, usability engineers etc).
We are also getting some local organisations to to talk and/or present at both these events.

Wednesday 11th of April, 4:00pm Brisbane
Microsoft Brisbane Office

I will be giving some demos around the Expression Tools.
Shane has worked as an interaction designer / information architect and usability specialist since 1991. He has come from the ranks of Hiser, and has not only passion for this subject matter but has become proactive in pushing Microsoft to share this passion going forward.
I have come from an Adobe/Macromedia/Allaire background in development have been an interactive application designer since 1997 ( I even wrote in VRML, thats going back some). I've evolved with technology going forward and have spent the last 4 years writing skinning solutions inside Adobe FLEX, as well as delivering line of business applications based on this technology. I now work for Microsoft, and am looking forward to using the new technologies in a similar but extended manner whilst showing other developers how Microsoft's new tools work under the hood.
We are also planning Perth post MIX07, so stay tuned for that.
