Last Friday started for me with friendly smiles of people who care about user-friendly solutions, which make our lifes better. I was happy to be among 60 attendees of the first UX Brunch Zürich 2015, organized by Valérie Vuillerat, Rahel Vils and Marc Steffen. Event took place in Impact Hub, which is known as a space with a good vibe. Being there is already enough to love the world around you even on an early Friday morning. But greeting and meeting people, who understand your challenges and the big meaning of those small victories on the way to great designs, is even better.

So far in our strategy series we've talked about what a strategy is, how to identify goals and obstacles and how to create a construct. Now in the last part of the series we take a closer look at why a project goes off track and what can be done about it.
You’ve drawn on your experience, expertise and intuition to create a good project strategy. You’ve defined measurable goals and correctly anticipated obstacles. You’ve shared a construct, a guiding strategy document, with the team. Work began, the future looked bright. Now, despite the best-laid schemes of mice and men, the project has gone awry. How do you get it back on track?
This week's edition features, WiFi everywhere you go, Josh Miller's Room app and the internet zoo. Enjoy!
In part one of this series, we discussed the art of strategy. In part two, the science. Now, we’ll discuss the deliverable that weaves them both together.
Impressions from my first TEDx event: TEDxZurich is all about inspiring speakers share their visions. The conference theme #stopstart invites all of us participating to reflect on what we recently stopped doing in life and what we are about to do new. As I just recently moved from Vienna to Zurich and joined Amazee Labs, this is definitely a topic that I can relate to!
Handling loads of data with nodes and fields in Drupal can be a painful experience: every field is put into a separate table which makes inserts and queries slow. In case you just want to import & display unstructured data without the flexibility and sugar of fields, this walkthrough is for you!
DrupalCon Europe 2014 was all about a new era that has now began on Wednesday, October 1st with the official beta 1 release - the era of Drupal 8. Compared with the DrupalCon Europe 2013, this conference was more about business and development and less about UX related matters. However, UX topics and raised questions are definitely worth mentioning.
This week's edition features the release of Drupal 8 Beta, a self-driving truck and 3D printed textiles. Enjoy!
In part one, we introduced the art of strategy. Strategy “blends intuition, wisdom, experience, logic, common sense, art and even poetry into a useable construct. The construct, an evolving project document, describes an ecosystem that will organically produce the stated, measurable goal.” Now, we’ll talk about the science of defining that goal and avoiding potential obstacles.
