RIA Experience Design Talk (18-11-09)


A key piece of successful rich internet application (RIA) design is ensuring that the application meets the needs of the end user. User experience design therefore plays a key role in any RIA implementation.

George Neill is a member of Adobe’s Technology and Experience Innovation group. With over 20 years experience as a designer he has an extensive understanding of users’ needs and behaviours, and a deep insight into how that understanding can be applied pragmatically to create innovative experiences that achieve clients’ business objectives.

This months talk at the Enterprise RIA User Group is on the 18th November and will be given by George. You can register for the free talk here.

Hope to see you there…
