Lotusphere BOF: Designers Unite!

Hi Folks. Along with the session that Nathan and I will be doing at Lotusphere 2007 (BP101 - Designing the User Experience: Why Your Interface Matters), we're also proud to be your hosts for one of the Birds of a Feather sessions.

There are a lot of Notes developers out there that have been putting nice UI designs together and even more that are interested in the topic. So please come join us for BOF202 - Designers Unite: Developing Innovative Interfaces In IBM Lotus Notes and share your thoughts, experiences and expertise. We're scheduled at 7AM on Tuesday the 23rd in Y&B GH Salon VI.

Birds of a Feather sessions are designed to allow like-minded individuals to come together and trade ideas, ask questions, etc. Interface/user experience design is an especially great topic for a BOF, since this is such a fast moving and dynamic field. If anything, the whole "Web 2.0" craze has ignited a lot of innovation in the UI design arena, and provides us with a lot of material to discuss.

I've included the BOF description below. If you think this kind of thing is up your alley, then we hope to see you there!

User Interfaces…they’re not just about pretty pictures and matching colors. This Birds of a Feather session is intended to draw together IBM Lotus Notes developers that are passionate about usability and user interface design. Learn from others how interface design can be integrated into your development methodology, and get real world insight on how to build more exciting and dynamic interfaces that can make users more productive. Take the opportunity to share ideas and best practices about a topic that is becoming more important on a daily basis as users become more savvy, sophisticated and demanding.

It's on my calendar. This topic is one of my priorities for the conference. For the last 4 years, I've mostly been maintaining existing applications. I have a new app to build from scratch soon and I'm looking for fresh ideas.
Thanks.

Expect me to be hungover.
