World Usability Scavenger Hunt




Celebrate the importance of usability on World Usability Day on Wednesday, Nov. 10th. To match Portland’s unique flavor, we have developed a unique urban challenge: The PDX UX Scavenger Hunt. With the theme of communications in mind, teams will comb the urban landscape to find examples of what works, what doesn’t, and why in the world around us.

This event is open to everyone in the world. It's not Portland-specific at all.

Teams will have from 12:01 am on Wednesday, Nov. 10th until 4 pm on Thursday, Nov. 11th to hunt for a list of communication-themed items. Teams will photograph each of their finds and then upload the pictures to a website so entries can be viewed in real-time. Teams can work together in their own neighborhood to allow hunting as time permits during the day.

Start forming your team today! Prizes will be awarded at the no-host prize ceremony at 7 pm Thursday, Nov. 11th at Bridgeport Brewpub at 1313 NW Marshall Street. Winners need not be present to win.
