23 - 25 November, Tallinn

World Usability Day Estonia is the first conference for User Experience professionals & the largest UX-, web- and interaction design event in the Baltics. The theme for WUD2022 is “Our health”. Without the health of our planet and ourselves, we have no chance of survival. Technology can either hurt it or improve it. Digital solutions can have a massive effect on our mental and physical health and even help combat pollution and deforestation. This year we will continue with the hybrid format which combines a live event (Kultuurikatel, Põhja puiestee 27a, Tallinn) with an online event. Stay tuned for more information!

• November 23-24th – workshop days at Tallinn University
• November 25th – conference day at Kultuurikatel & afterparty at Uus Laine bar

Eye Tracking in Formative Usability Testing (2h)

November 24, 2022 at 10:00

Considering the attention to products' use allows designers to avoid usability problems that may otherwise go unnoticed. Eye tracking is a novel technology.

Fixing frustrating design patterns in 2023 (about 7 h)

November 23, 2022 at 10:00
You’ve seen them before. Confusing and frustrating design patterns that seem to be chasing you everywhere you go, from one website to another. Perhaps it’s a birthday selector dropdown that always starts in 2022, or a disabled submit button that never communicates what's actually wrong or tooltips that — once opened — always cover the input field just when you need to correct a mistake. They are everywhere, and they are annoying, often tossing us from one dead-end to another, in something that seems like a well-orchestrated and poorly designed mousetrap.
