CHIFOO (Computer Human Interaction Forum of Oregon) - CHIFOO Event: Researching Smart + Spatial Computing
Connective DX

CHIFOO presents: Researching Smart + Spatial Computing with Hannah Scurfield!

Understanding how humans will react and engage with new and emerging platforms can be challenging, particularly with smart and spatial computing. These types of experiences often depart from existing mental models of human-machine interaction and are often tricky to prototype. Traditional behavioral research methods often become less effective, meaning researchers need to experiment with new ways to gather learning.

Using examples from research into mixed and augmented reality experiences, we will explore these hurdles and discuss techniques for gathering insights when existing research methods prove inadequate.

Join this session to hear about experimenting with user experience design research techniques and how people interact with augmented and mixed reality experiences.

About the Speaker

Hannah drives technology innovation by researching people, behaviors and culture. She works with design, development, product and business teams to help build products and experiences that people love. She has nearly 18 years’ experience in both research and design roles in the technology industry and an exciting 14 years spent working in the innovation labs of global technology leaders.

Her career has been focused on emerging platforms, from early mobile computing and the Internet of things to augmented and virtual reality experiences. A background in film, human-computer interaction and ergonomics prepared Hannah for experimenting with smart and spatial computing and her current passion: reimagining the traditional screen-based design research studio.

Hannah likes blank sheets of paper and big questions with no answers.

CTO & Engineering Executive Forum: Social Media Inside the Engineering Department – Is it safe?
Morton's Steakhouse

At the October 20th Technology and IP Event, Fostering Innovation Through Social Media: Using it Openly But Wisely, speakers will present how organizations are using social media to drive innovation from a business development perspective. At the November 2nd CTO and Engineering Executive Forum we will continue to explore what social media looks like on the inside of an organization, specifically in the engineering department.

We know that social media has proven effective in outbound marketing strategies, but is the creation and exchange of user-generated content safe in an environment of innovation and trade secrets? Do you protect against social media? Do you cultivate social media? Or both?

Join your peers for dinner and a forum discussion of the possibilities for creating a culture of innovation by using social media.

Cost to Attend: $95 TechAmerica Members, $125 Nonmembers To Register: TechAmerica, (503) 624-4871

I want to work for NAVEX Global w/David Nash (powered by FREE PIZZA)!

For November, we have David Nash as our very special guest.
This is the last meetup for the year as we will be taking a winter/holiday break in December.
So make sure you join us and learn from a Product Management legend in Portland!

Here's David's self-introduction:
"Since arriving here in ’92 from New York, Portland has been very, very good to me. Like the TV commercial says, ‘I know a few things because I’ve seen a few things’. I would add that I’ve been blessed to meet some amazing people along the way. I came here courtesy of Intel, where I worked for some 17 years, and where I had the good fortune to reinvent myself several times: from motherboards to software-video & telecom, from Intel Labs, to venture investing and internal startups, I did everything I could to try new things, soak it all in, and become versatile. After leaving Intel in 2006, I spent 10 years at ADP Dealer Services (now known as CDK Global) where we built software for Automotive Retailers & OEMs. Last October – just about 1 year ago – I had the amazing good fortune to join NAVEX Global, who provides the world’s most comprehensive Ethics & Compliance SaaS platform – and has the inspiring mission of helping organizations protect their people, reputation, and bottom line. Our mission really speaks to me because, as a Boy Scout Leader for 25 years, I care a lot about integrity and being a servant leader. In addition to networking relentlessly along the way, I’ve also followed my passion in Product Management and created ProductCamp Portland in 2012. We’re running our 7th camp in March 2018. This one will be exciting for sure. And free pizza as usual!

What do VMWare, Illumina, and SolarWinds all have in common with Google, Apple, and Facebook? They are all high growth companies that saw into the future and took advantage of huge enabling waves of change in the marketplace when they were just ripples.

And more…

We’ll then offer specific tools you can use to develop a strategy and plan for what do DO about the waves.

TwitchPDX - Gaming at Quarterworld!

We had a blast last time we met up at Quarterworld, so we figured we'd do it again! It's a great arcade with good seating to hang out and play some handhelds or card games when you're cooling down from pinball and arcade cabinets. :)

Feel free to bring your favorite board/card game, or a 3DS/Playstation Vita to play with others! We'll eat some food, get to know each other, and have a good time. Admission to Quarterworld is $1 at that time, so make sure you're prepared to pay that when you arrive. 

Looking forward to seeing you! Get ready for some great times.

Don't forget; if you like these Meetups, you can help support the group and keep them free for everyone by chipping in!
