World IA Day is coming and Ottawa has an Event!

Unlike World Usability Day, when Ottawa didn't have many formal events planned, I'm happy to announce that there is a meetup for World IA Day. Ok, so we had to plan it ourselves. But we have one none-the-less.

Join us on the eve of the first ever World IA Day for a casual meetup with the Ottawa's usability, design and information architecture community.

It's been a few months since the last usability and accessibility camps took place, so we thought we would use WIAD as a great excuse to host (and grow!) the UX community. Whether you're from the public or private sector, a n00b or an expert, we invite you to meet your peers, share a drink and join the discussion.

This event doesn't qualify as an official WIAD event, so you won't find it on the WIAD website but we know there is an excellent, active community that deserves one! Here's hoping we make it next year.


SPIN Kitchen and Bar, 100 Kent St, Ottawa, Canada
Friday, February 10, 5:00 - 7:00 pm
