This afternoon I attended a workshop on usability given by Michael Sauers. It was a good presentation and helped give some "hands on" experience of the information I have been reading about for a while.
It's too bad the workshop was only three hours; there's so much that can be done and discussed about it that would take much longer than three hours to cover. If nothing else, today's workshop gave me a small taste of what I will experience at the User Interface 11 Conference. I am looking forward to it.
