Source: SuperPope

Called a mecca for UX folks, if you’ve been dreaming about a thought-provoking, intimate (read: no wristbands or lines) and fluff-free conference on User Experience, look no further!

The brainchild of UX expert Jared M. Spool, authority on user interface design and human factors in computing, UI 16 is one of many amazing events put together by User Interface Engineering (UIE for short).

Here are some reasons why we feel this UX conference is so important for you to attend and so vital for us to sponsor:

  • Great place to learn, collaborate, and go home with new, very marketable skills
  • Full day immersive workshops on advanced UX topics like Mobile Web Design and Designing Rich Interactive Experiences
  • Top UX experts sharing their real-world experience
  • Speakers are hand-picked by Jared and the workshops provide real-world, actionable tips
  • Vitamin T is partnering with UIE to offer a $300 discount! (see below)
  • Food at the conference is AWESOME

(That last one is a gimmee. Don’t include it in the list you show to your boss.)

Even if you’re background is in development and design and you’re migrating toward UX, this is a fantastic event to attend. The folks who go to UI 16 are innovators who love to network at the conference, so you won’t be lonely! Plus, it’s chock full of current and alumni Aquent | Vitamin T talent, who we KNOW are friendly.

A couple of the many excellent speakers will be Bill Scott, former Director of UI Engineering at Netflix and Kim Goodwin, VP, Design and General Manager at design strategy firm Cooper, who will deliver her uber popular workshop on Designing with Scenarios.

So seriously, you should go. And now for the discount part:
