With the end of classes at the University of Michigan on December 7, my travel options expand in interesting ways. And I’m wasting no time! Here are three upcoming opportunities to learn about information architecture from TUG the week of December 9:
December 9 – Workshop At General Assembly SF
Understanding User Experience
It’s a treat and a real honor to be co-facilitating this afternoon workshop at General Assembly with Todd Zaki Warfel and Christina Wodtke. I’ll be covering stuff like wireframes and task flows, and my colleagues will present on matters including user research, prototyping, launch strategy… a marvelous way to spend a Sunday afternoon in December!
December 11 – Presentation at BayCHI, Palo Alto
The Architecture of Information
For the past several years I’ve indulged myself in a deep dive into the work of Richard Saul Wurman. Credited by many as inventor of information architecture in the 1970s, RSW actually began working on the architecture of information in 1962. In many ways the apogee of this body of work came in 1976 at a conference bearing the name Architecture of Information. I’ve examined nearly all of the artifacts and teachings from this era of RSW’s oeuvre, and am prepared to share my interpretation of the core principles underneath it all. 5 core teachings from the architecture of information: come to PARC’s George E. Pake Auditorium at 7:00 on December 11 and find out what I’ve re-discovered.
December 12 – Workshop at General Assembly SF
Understanding Information Architecture
The entirety of an evening at The Hattery learning information architecture with yours truly. I’ll show you the ways of What Before How, and together we’ll get hands-on with the essential tools of the information architect’s trade: words and meaning.
We’d love to meet up with you while we’re visiting your peninsula!
