Agile & Lean UX Unconference
Hanson Inc

Join us at Hanson for the first Agile & Lean UX Unconference. Pizza and drinks will be provided, complementary of Hanson.

Unconferences are great at tackling interesting topics and spurring solid discussions. There is no set agenda but you will find the sessions engaging and you will get exactly what you need out of it.

An Unconference (also known in similar flavors as Open Space, or Lean Coffee) is where group members share their knowledge in open spaces. Sessions are generated and introduced by attendees and voted upon and discussed in small groups. There is no set schedule or agenda, so come with a few topics/questions in mind that you're hoping to discuss or get answers to.

Autonomous Vehicles and Design Innovation
Premier Banquet Facility

This year marks the twenty-third anniversary of TMACOG’s Transportation Summit. The event is designed to share information and facilitate networking among elected officials, urban planners, and transportation experts from northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.

This year’s program features three informative panels, refreshments, and a buffet luncheon. Plenty of time is built into the day to make new connections with counterparts from across the region. Approximately 200 people are expected.

Topics:

Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies will soon transform what it means to “drive” in the biggest revolution in transportation since the horseless carriage. Public officials and infrastructure planners question how this phenomenon will reshape our communities, alter roadway design, and change how people and goods move. This session will assess the CAV impact on urban form, site design, and the potential for new redevelopment opportunities brought about by reduced parking needs. Also explored are local and state policy implications

This session focuses on advances in design for roadways, intersections, and interchanges. Our network is changing to improve safety and congestion, and to support active transportation modes. Presenters will share strategies and decision factors regarding key projects. Gain insights on approaches to project design and selection, and examine factors that affect the project areas. Learn about methods to engage and educate the public on the use of innovative designs.

LRITA 2017 Tech Conference
Lima Veterans' Memorial Civic and Convention Center

The Lima Regional IT Alliance has again selected the Lima Veterans' Memorial Civic and Convention Center as the venue for the LRITA.org 2017 Tech Conference scheduled for Thursday, April 13, 2017.

The LRITA.org 2017 Tech Conference planning committee invites you to join us along with our many presenters and our region's IT vendors for this premiere IT professional event. This is where we all come together in sharing the knowledge.

LRITA will host keynote presenter: Darren Kall. Title & Summary: What to Do About Human Error in Security. Human error is responsible for contributing to 95% of security incidents. Each year the threats to enterprise security grow exponentially. We're failing to engage employees in protecting valuable company assets and their private information. Technology advances and employee education alone will not eliminate this risk. You will be shocked to learn that Security, IT, and HR are taking the wrong approach to human error. And it's only going to get worse unless we do something radically different. To combat human error takes a profound understanding of why human errors continue to occur. In this talk Darren will clarify the causes of human error, show how cyberspace hackers are using a deep understanding of the psychology of people to succeed, and he will give specific recommendations for changing your model of human error so that new mitigation strategies can be produced and implemented to reduce human error in security.

As we did at last year's conference, LRITA will be hosting a special opening presentation on cyber security. The presentation will be given by the FBI in partnership with the Toledo Infragard Members Alliance. During this presentation, attendees will be updated on the hows and whys businesses are targeted and exploited through cyber attacks.

Last year's event attracted more than 30 IT exhibitors and approximately 225 participants. The growing list of sponsors and exhibitors include: CorpComm Group, Virtual Technologies Group, Dell SonicWALL, City of Lima, TSC Communications, AIM Ecycling, The AME Group, CentraComm, Superior Credit Union, Uptime Solutions, WCOIL, Ohio Value Integration Services Inc., Sophos, ITsavvy, Hospitality WiFi, Tomorrow's Technology Today LLC, UIS Insurance & Investments, Com Net Inc., and Spectrum Enterprise.

Sketches of Frank Gehry
Toledo Museum of Art

Art House Film Series: Sketches of Frank Gehry (2006, 86 minutes, PG-13), In the Little Theater. FREE.

Architect Frank Gehry loves to sketch. It is the beginning of his architectural process. From his sketches flow the models, one after another, each a refinement, that will eventually become finished buildings unlike any others in the architectural world. It is this sketch quality, what he calls the “tentativeness, the messiness,” that Gehry clings to as a way of guarding against formula or repetition.

And it is this sketch quality that acclaimed feature film director Sydney Pollack was so keen to explore in the film SKETCHES OF FRANK GEHRY, seen on AMERICAN MASTERS.

Midwest UX (Cincinnati)
through

On Oct. 12-14, 2017, Cincinnati will host the seventh annual Midwest UX Conference. The regional conference celebrates the growing practice of user experience design, and since its inception in 2011, has been held in Columbus, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, Louisville and Pittsburgh.

“The conference is a reflection of the host city and the UX community within it,” said Jessica Schomaker, Cincinnati MWUX chair. “It’s really refreshing to get to go to all of these cities and see the UX communities there.”

The three-day event will feature hands-on workshops, keynote speakers, city excursions and networking events. Keynotes will be held at Memorial Hall, workshops will be at Cintrifuse and other locations in Over-the-Rhine and the closing party will be held at the Contemporary Arts Center.

Day one of the conference is workshop-based. Attendees will be able to go into the sessions and meet with international industry leaders who will teach skills needed for UX design. Cincinnati is in the middle of redefining itself. “It's a reflection of what UX does — it improves user experience, just like Cincinnati is doing,” Jessica Schomaker.

“I moved here not too long ago and took a UX job,” Schomaker said. “The UX community in Cincinnati is remarkable, and the quality of people and conversations I’ve had are remarkable. It would be surprising to people outside of the Midwest that these conversations and groups are here because the perception is that good design happens on the coast. But good design is happening in the Midwest too.”

She feels that with the renaissance of OTR and downtown, Cincinnati is in the middle of redefining itself. “It’s a reflection of what UX does — it improves user experience, just like Cincinnati is doing.”

The Midwest UX Conference is entirely volunteer-based. With each new host city, new conference chairs are chosen from the local UX community, which allows each city to put on the best conference possible for the region.

“We get to highlight things that are happening in the city and highlight our favorite places,” Schomaker said.
