On October 22nd 2012 Conversion Jam 2 took place here in Stockholm Sweden. UX Podcast was there to capture a taste of the conference for those of you who were elsewhere.
During the 16-18 May I’ll be at UXLx in Lisbon. Like last year I’ll be travelling there from Stockholm along with Per Axbom. And also like last year we’re planning to cover the event in a few different ways.
One of the ways we will be covering the event is through a number of on the spot episodes of UX Podcast.
Optimise or die
UX Podcast is a regular podcast for web professionals hosted by myself and Per. If you haven’t listened to it before, give our latest episode a listen. We interviewed Craig Sullivan (Optimiseordie on Twitter) about mobile websites and got some hands on advice based on Craig’s experience with Belron.
Broadcasting from the event
If you are at UXLx you might spot us recording an episode. Keep a look out for the UX Podcast rollup. If you see it, come and join us for a chat!
We are also planning to publish some notes, pictures, mindmaps, perhaps even sketches, with the help of other delegates on uxlx.posterous.com. If you’d like to contribute, let us know
Episode 5 of UXPodcast has been published. This month, Per Axbom and I talk to Jesper Bylund about gamification.
It was not only good fun to have Per and Jesper round to Beantin HQ to record the podcast, it was also thoroughly educational. Jesper knows his stuff when it comes to game design and gamification.
The peak of inflated expectations
There’s an awful lot of hype about gamification now – as higlighted by Gartner in their 2011 hype cycle. Gamification is right up there in the peak of inflated expectations.
Together with the hype there is a lot of misunderstanding. In the podcast we dig into the misunderstanding and talk about what gamification really is.
