It's Like Summer Camp for User Experience Types!

Shameless plug:

Adaptive Path is going to Washington, D.C. next month, August 22 -25. This is our annual User Experience week - 4 days of talking about all manner of interesting issues (designing for Web 2.0, information architecture, content effectiveness, new user research methods), with interesting people (i.e., the other attendees.)

We recently announced a new guest speaker -- Eric Costello, developer for Flickr, will talk about the development of their innovative product.

That's in addition to such good guests as Jared Spool and Marc Rettig.

I've helped put together Day 2, which is all about IA and content effectiveness. I'm excited about speaking with Melanie Arens, a senior information architect from WellsFargo.com. We will be discussing content strategy and content effectiveness in depth. Planning and designing your content is an often overlooked step in web development. We hope to shed light on its importance, and approaches for doing it.

All of which takes place in Washington, D.C.'s Hotel Monaco, a massive boutique hotel (is "massive boutique" an oxymoron) in the heart of D.C. Often the greatest value of conferences is in the networking, and we make a point of getting attendees to meet one another, both in the sessions and afterwards.

You can sign up for any number of days, or all 4. When you do so, use promotional code FOPM and get an additional 15% off.

If you'll be in DC for User Experience week, please join DCIA (Washington's local IA group) for a happy hour on Tuesday, August 23rd at 5:30pm. The details are still being hammered out, so visit www.dc-ia.com for updates. The DC chapter of UPA is co-hosting the event.

If you are going to be in DC, you may want to venture over to some of the going-ons for the IDSA conference happening at the same time at http://www.idsa.org/re-action/index.htm .. Would love to get a drink with you - I met you briefly at Trilogy when you were still at epinions.

Take care,
