Some collaboration is finally happening among UX professionals in Hyderabad. It is good that we are moving out of our silos and realizing the need for collective efforts to move this niche area to the mainstream of the software industry. On 5th may at the CA office; there was an interesting turnout of UX professionals. The agenda was to discuss the proposal of a CHI chapter in Hyderabad. Raman saxena, UI architect, CA, organized the meet up along with Victoria, also of CA, and Ripul, of kern communications.
It was an informal meetup with Raman presenting the need for having the Hyderabad CHI chapter and the attendees participating and sharing their views. The Infosys UX AVP Sridhar Mari also spoke on how Infosys started its usability practice, and the need for a design school. It is absolutely essential that UX professionals meet on a regular basis so that we can share our experiences, and get to learn from other professionals in this space.
To all HCI aficionados, please take out some time and send feedback on the proposed CHI chapter to victoria.chattopadhyay(at)ca.com. Attached are some meet photos taken by Victoria. " Click on the thumbnails for an enlarged view"
