A casual conference, user research friday is where UX, research, and design professionals gather to discuss methods and meet each other. By User Interface Engineering.
On November 18th, 2011, over 200 design and research professionals gathered in NY, SF, and Amsterdam. Check out all the videos and slides here.
There were 125 web, UX, design, and research professionals that got together in San Francisco in SOMA to listen to talks from the Twitter design research team, Jared Spool, and many others. You can see all the videos & slides on the 2010 page, although we know conference videos are usually pretty dry unless it's freaking TED. These ones pretty good. Swear.
