Code have long been supporters of the Northern User Experience Group (NUX), an informal community of user experience professionals and enthusiasts.
Run by independent industry practitioners in Manchester, Leeds and York, the group's made up of a diverse mix of designers, developers, academics, researchers, usability specialists, accessibility experts and technical authors -- basically, pretty much every discipline involved in the very broad world of user experience.
It's a growing community that continues to attract leading industry specialists in the North, and the bi-monthly NUX meetups are held alternatively at the Code Computerlove office and Simple Usability in Leeds.
Now, following on from last year's successful NUXOne Conference, the group are preparing for their biggest event to date: NUX2.
The day-long conference is set to take place on Friday 25th October at the Comedy Store in Manchester.
This year's event will feature eight world-class speakers, including Mike Atherton (former Head of User Experience at Huddle), Jane Murison (Head of UX&D at the BBC), Ria Sheppard (Lead UX Designer at eBay Europe) and David Hamill (UX at Skyscanner), while our keynote speaker is the amazing Susan Weinschenk, a.k.a. 'The Brain Lady'.
Susan has over 30 years' experience as a behavioural psychologist and is the author of several books, including How To Get People To Do Stuff, 100 Things Every Presenter Needs To Know About People, 100 Things Every Designer Needs To Know About People, and Neuro Web Design: What makes them click?. Making the complex themes of persuasion and motivation more accessible, these publications are all must-reads for anyone working in UX today.
