World Usability Day 2009 in Manila

We had an event for the fifth World Usability Day event here in Manila yesterday, along with 123 other locations all over the world. Entitled “Design/Sustain,” the Adobe User Group – Philippines (AUGPhil) and the UST Information Systems Society (UST ISYS) hosted the event with a focus on the theme “Designing for a Sustainable World.”

We had a great roster of speakers and topics. Dr. Rosemary Seva of the De La Salle University talked about “Usability and Sustainability”, Rey Mendoza of AUGPhil talked about “Affordable Usability Tools” , and Illac Diaz of My Shelter Foundation shared their projects in sustainable architecture.

Apart from students, the event attracted members of the Philippine usability community and there was talk of developing the community and establishing a Philippine chapter of the Usability Professionals’ Association (UPA).

Hopefully by next year, the World Usability Day event will be co-presented by our own local UPA chapter. :)

    The term sustainability is part of the new world. The greener something is the more likely is to last into the future. Everything, including software development, web design, and navigation, needs to be more green.
