CanUX 2006 is just around the corner. There are a limited number of seats (yes, there’s still some available, so sign up if you are interested). This is a grassroots conference held at the Banff Centre for the Arts hosted by Jess McMullin, Bryce Johnson and me.
We have an world-class line up that includes:
- Liz Danzico
- John Morkes
- Gene Smith
- Kevin Cheng
- Joey Benedek, User Research Manager, Windows Client, Microsoft
- John Bristowe
We have some of the best sponsors in the world. CanUX 2006 would not be possible without their generous support.

I’ve written about TechSmith’s Morae in the past. It is a fantastic usability testing tool. I can’t say enough good things about Morae. If you need a rapid method for collecting, processing and outputting usability testing observations, Morae is a great tool. It doesn’t replace good experimental design and usability testing know how, but it does make the entire process of capturing, logging, analyzing and creating professional summaries much faster, easier and less expensive. Unfortunately, it’s still Windows only, but I guess if I was to buy a new MacBookPro and run Parallels I could probably overlook this.
I’m not a Microsoft guy, I’ve been using Sutha’s copy of Windows Vista running in a Parallels virtual machine over VNC. The first 2 things I purchase after upgrading my Powerbook to a MacBookPro will include a copy of Parallels and a license for a Microsoft operating system. I’m looking forward to hearing about Microsoft Expression and how it will impact the design and development process. With new user experiences like Office 12 and the ribbon . The Microsoft Canada team has been outstanding. They are friendly, helpful, excited and interested in alternate view points.
There’s not a lot of time left to register. Don’t miss out on a world-class event. Head over to the CanUX website and register before we sell out.
