We're hosting a series of talks around the interaction design of complex applications — think dashboards, dense infographics, tiny fonts, stock tickers, flashing text, complex data sources, and things that make excel look like child's play.
We have an interesting speaker lineup whose backgrounds include the Bloomberg terminal, Thomson Reuters' Eikon, and other big data and machine language applications.
Tickets go live Friday 12pm.
Thanks to Futureheads and EY-Seren for sponsoring us this month!
