Arizona World Usability Day Celebration at GoDaddy Tempe

We hope you will join us for this year’s World Usability Day event! We have hosted an event since the inception of World Usability Day and we look forward to this year’s event!

This year’s theme is “Design for the Future We Want”, to focus our work to improve the world through better experiences and create a better future together. Design has a huge influence on people’s lives. What we design today can have a lasting impact on the world. This year’s theme was inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals, set by the United Nations (UN). These 17 goals on the 2030 agenda provide a road map to a more peaceful and prosperous future for all.
