UPA 2011 Conference

UPA 2011, the annual Usability Professionals’ Association conference, was in Atlanta this year. It was well attended and full of excellent presentations and workshops, including a short talk from our current Michigan UPA president, Mike Beasley.

He spoke at one of the three Ignite sessions, which consisted of five-minute talks on a variety of subjects. Mike chose to speak on “What User Experience Professionals Can Learn From Cats.” It was a well-received presentation, although it was unclear whether it was because the advice was sound or because of the cat pictures.
