Information Architecture Events Heat Up February
Where did January go? We are happy it’s behind us, as that means we’re closer to a great week of IA events coming up in mid-February.
To kick off the week, TUG will be hosting a book launch and open house to celebrate the release of Andrew Hinton’s book, Understanding Context: Environment, Language, and Information Architecture. You’re all invited to join us in our Ann Arbor office on Monday, February 16.
On Thursday, February 19, Andrew Hinton and Kaarin Hoff will be previewing their IA Summit talk, Practical Modeling: Making the Invisible Visible, at the Detroit User Experience Meetup.
Finally, World Information Architecture Day is Saturday, February 21, and that means great IA events in 38 cities in 24 countries. TUG is a proud sponsor of the World IA Day event in Ann Arbor, where Andrew Hinton and Dan Klyn will both be speaking. We hope to see you there.
