“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

TriUPA’s 2009 Professional Training workshop series (For North Carolinians, and others near NC)

[I’m really excited to be part of this series of speakers and workshops that the fine folks at TriUPA (North Carolina Research Triangle) were able to put together. If you are in the Triangle, I hope I’ll be able to get to see you there, then. — dave]

What’s TriUPA?

TriUPA is a local chapter of the Usability Professionals’ Association based in the Research Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area), North Carolina, USA.

This is an annual reminder about TriUPA’s activities for those in North Carolina (or nearby regions) who may not yet be plugged into our community. We’re offering an extensive workshop program in 2009, which we hope will be of interest to folks throughout the Southeast.

About TriUPA’s Professional Training

TriUPA is excited to announce our 2009 Professional Training workshop series. The goal of our workshop series is to bring to our community the best thinking and latest practices in the user experience field.

TriUPA focuses on four areas of practice…

  1. usability evaluation and testing
  2. user research
  3. interaction design
  4. information architecture

… and our workshop series is designed to address each of these areas.

Please save the dates for the following full-day workshops. Detailed information and a link to register will be sent in advance of each workshop. Fees will vary for each event, but will typically be in the range of $150 – $250 for TriUPA members, with discounts for corporate sponsors and students.

You can become a TriUPA member today, by registering on our website. It’s $15/year for professionals; free for students.

Feel free to contact Abe Crystal with any questions about our workshop series.
