This year's theme is "Information Strategy & Structure"!
It’s going to be a packed day. We start earlier in the day. Imagine taking the Expo Line down to Santa Monica where Philosophie will be so graciously hosting us. There will be breakfast food and caffeine. A warm welcome from an excessively giddy Grace. A keynote that will bring us to the moon and back. You’ll be an information superhero, a mentor to your new and old UX friends. There will be tacos to nourish us, topics to keep our minds buzzing.
A content modeling workshop that’ll bring you places. A panel that will keep you on your toes. A blurry round of lightning talks zapping you from everyday IA to Big IA, messy IA to My IA. You’ll go home with your minds abuzz, the words of the last speaker still roaring in your ears -- all the impact you’ll have! The things you’ll do! The people you’ll have talked to!
It’s going to be amazing. New faces. Familiar faces. More diversity. Are you ready for it?
