I was at the third Northern UX (hence, NUX3) conference today, along with 500+ other folk.
It was great. I got something out of every talk.
So whilst I did that thing of mentally ticking off stuff I knew (always a relief, never a smugsville thing), I also picked up a lot.
New approaches to teamwork in UX/usability/service design, workshop/research catalyst ideas, book suggestions, ways of thinking about wider (eco)systems.
A call to arms to stop thinking site / P\page design and to start thinking systems (e.g Google Now / Twitter cards).
It was a great speaker lineup.
The talk I thought might be a bit crowbar-ed in was focused on recruitment (from Be).
But it too generated ideas (in that I sometimes help clients with recruitment selection).
So that meant a full house of useful/stimulating talks.
Good stuff, cheers NUX and Manchester Digital.
I’m going to give you a poor reader experience and not summarise it all here. Sorry.
Search #NUX3 on Twitter and keep an eye out for the slide shares coming out in a few days.
And have a look at the excellent sketchnotes from today by Chris Spalton (I spotted his tweets at the event).
He summarises each talk wonderfully.
I made some summary notes but they don’t fall into the legible/ helpful sketchnote camp. So I’ll spare you.
Instead, here’s a link to Intertwingled, keynote speaker Peter Morville’s new book.
It’s in my kindle to-read folder.
If it’s as good as the talk, it’ll be really stimulating.
