Hi folks, I saw this email on the FOSDEM mailing list. Since some folks from Open Labs usually make it out to Brussels, I thought to share this here too:
As part of the FOSDEM Fringe, Open Source Design is giving a free, hands-on workshop on how to plan, run and analyse usability studies the Friday before FOSDEM.
The workshop will take place at Hackerspace Brussels on Friday 31st January from 12:00 to 17:00. You can register for the workshop at
A huge thank you is due to Hackerspace Brussels for providing the space for the workshop: we could not do this without them
The workshop will demonstrate how easy and how useful the usability testing technique can be. It will also teach attendees what they need to know in order to run usability studies themselves. The content has been designed for FOSS projects and for complete newbies: no experience doing design research necessary.
The workshop can accommodate 20 people. Spaces are assigned on a first come, first served basis.
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch off list.
