Two noteworthy events coming soon!
MiUPA: Design for two different generations: a user experience challenge
We all know about the Baby Boomers: they are a huge demographic, there are a lot of them, and they are now aging. But did you realize that there is a new generation that outnumbers the boomers? Called the “Net Generation” these are people who are born between 1977 and 1996. There are 8 million in the US and over 2 billion worldwide. And they are joining your organization and usability group as employees. They also may be a critical part of your current and upcoming target audience for the products you sell and/or the interfaces you design.
These generations are very different. In this session Dr. Susan Weinschenk will explore the two groups, their impact on the design of the user experience, and how their expectations, experience, use of technology and social collaboration will radically change the interfaces you design and the way you work.
