World Usability Day is a single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.
It is about celebration and education – celebrating the strides we have made in creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability impacts our daily lives.
It is about making our world work better. It is about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: Human error is a misnomer - we don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well.
As part of the Word Usability Day calendar of events, The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) will be hosting an exciting program of seminars, demonstrations and workshops presented by some of Australia’s leading lights in UCD, UX and Accessibility. Presenting agencies include Vision Australia, IP Australia, Stamford Interactive and more.
Parking is available at Benjamin Office for $9.00 per day – this option takes coins and credit cards (this parking usually fills up by 9am).
Parking is also available at the Belconnen Markets for $7.50 per day, however, only takes coins.
