World Usability Day 2019
November 14, 2019 – 8:30am to 4:30pm at Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs, 301 19th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN. This event is free to attend and anyone with a passion for user-center design, or curiosity about it, should attend.
Design has a huge influence on people’s lives. What we design today can have a lasting impact on the world.
This year’s theme was inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals, set by the United Nations (UN). These 17 goals on the 2030 agenda provide a road map to a more peaceful and prosperous future for all.
