*From Apples to eye surgery: designing useful user experiences*
The phrase 'user experience' has been used with increased frequency over the
past few years in relation to system design, but just what is this 'user
experience' stuff anyway? In this presentation, Ruth will look at the
meaning and importance of user experience and provide some tips on how we
can design more useful user experiences.

*About the speaker*

is extremely passionate about creating accessible and useful user

We've booked out the restaurant for the night, and I have arranged for a
banquet <http://www.indianaffair.com.au/banquets.html>. If you do have any
special food requirements, please let me know in your RSVP, or email me at
loquacities at gmail.com.

Unfortunately, we are still short a sponsor, so again you will need to cover
the cost of your own meal. The cost of the banquet is $32.00 a head, so
please remember to bring enough cash to cover the food and any drinks you
might have on the night. The restaurant is BYO bottled wine only, and some
alcoholic drinks are available from the bar.

Of course, if you don't want to have to keep on paying for these, have a
chat to your boss, your colleagues and your friends, and encourage them to
sponsor a great event!

See you all on the fourth!


Cheers! Lana
