Volunteers wanted: STC User-experience SIG
I am glad to announce that we will be rolling STC India's Special Interest Group (SIG) on User Experience (UX) shortly. This also happens to be the first ever SIG from STC India. I am looking for volunteers to help me kick-start this SIG. If you profess a keen interest in usability, human factors, and design, and would like to volunteer, write to me.
*Launch the SIG along with its own web site.
* Work closely with the STC SIG and other chapter SIGs like the Washington DC Usability SIG
*Conduct research projects on documentation usability and publish findings.
*Forge partnerships with usability organizations like the UPA (http://upabangalore.org/). I am already talking to UPA Bangalore.
*Organize events to evangelize UX. Conduct workshops, seminars,conferences...
*Train people on areas like usability testing and heuristic evaluation
That's the rough plan. So, if this excites you and you want to be part this exciting project, write to me. Send me your responses by EOD this
Friday, 6th June 2008. Once I have a list of volunteers, we can have a get together (Barista or Coffee day, you know?).
