Next week on Thursday January 15th we've got Tricky Basset coming to show us the 'Tricky Design Experience' at NxtGenUG Southampton. After seeing Bill Buxton's key note at Remix '08 it became clear that Microsoft is really moving into this design space with some considerable vigour, the concept of people not buying products but buying experiences is something that Microsoft seem to have missed over the years whereas companies like Apple have seemed to excel.
Tricky will talking us through his team's iterative approach to design including Branding, Ideation, Research, Sketching and Conceptualisation and showing off some great WPF and Silverlight projects.
As a special treat Tricky has invited Dr. Neil Roodyn (MVP) to travel all the way from the land of Oz to join him for this exclusive session at NxtGenUG Southampton, together they shall be providing an interactive session with lots of audience interaction.
Design is something that I've always wanted to get a grip on (in that I have no design skills whatsoever) and I personally can't wait for this session it is stacking up to be an awesome experience and one not to be missed.
See you there!
