On Saturday Feb. 20, 2016, RichmondUX will be producing Richmond’s first World IA Day: RVA! We are planning a full day of discussion, learning, sharing, and networking.
Our world is full of information, and more of us than you may realize are involved with making decisions about the structure, placement, relationships between, and characteristics of information. Whether we are using the latest mobile app, watching the local news or navigating our way through the post office or grocery store, information is all around us.
Because of the ubiquitous nature of information, information architecture is not just practiced by specialists. If you work in any of the following domains, you’ll be right at home here: user experience (UX), user interface (UI) design, web or mobile design, product design and management, data visualization, content strategy, library science, customer experience, and even service design.
In short: if you analyze, synthesize, or organize information, content, or data—or if you just want to learn more about information archtecture— we would love you to see you there! Please visit the WIAD:RVA event page for details on speakers and schedule and to get your tickets. Please note: Attendance is free, but Eventbrite registration in advance is REQUIRED.
Thank you to our local sponsors for making this event possible! Please check them out.
On August 26th, RichmondUX is excited to host a long overdue presentation on a topic in the intersection between interaction design, UI design, and front-end development. IT Analyst at VCU and long-time RUX member Gaurav Gupta will talk about the Power of CSS Flexbox.
Tickets are $5 through August 21st and $7 thereafter, available via Eventbrite. (Tickets will be $10 at the door.)
Web developers have been trying to solve layout issues since the dawn of web. We started with tables, then floats and grids—each technique had its limitations. Thanks to Flexbox, it’s all about to change.
Flexbox is one of the most promising yet underutilized additions to the CSS3 specification. Using this layout model you can arrange elements in any direction, align them, distribute the space, assign sizes, stretch or shrink them to fit in parent element, wrap or rearrange them—all with far less CSS compared to grids.
Flexbox truly shines when used in responsive design. Changing the visual order, alignment, assigning proportional sizes of your boxes becomes a breeze. During this presentation, you will learn the basics of Flexbox specification and explore some of its practical uses.
