This year’s theme is Users First! Possible topics could include website accessibility, usability testing, user centered design best practices, user experience design and otherwise putting the user’s needs at the center of technology/solution delivery. Project managers, business analysts, programmers, designers, change management, help desk, systems support and other practitioners will benefit from participation in the discussions. We all interface with users at some level. The beauty of the unconference format is that you, the attendees, take the broad theme and create a program that reflects your needs and interests. Prior themes were The Cloud (Fall 2012) and Mobility@Yale (Spring 2012).
The YUnconference takes place on Tuesday November 19, 2013 at the West Campus Conference Center. This new location offers more space to accommodate a larger group, and will help us avoid the quick sell-out of the prior events. Plus we have the advantage of wonderful new facilities, easy parking and onsite food service. More specific details and registration will be available in early October. Attendance is free and open to the Yale community. Start considering what topics you want to share and discuss with your
