Tonight's Refresh Dallas Presentation


As I mentioned last month, I will be presenting at the Refresh Dallas meeting tonight. The title of the presentation is Effective Dashboard Design. Here are all the details from RefreshDallas:


Effective Dashboard Design
Practical tools and examples for your next dashboard project

As enterprises and other organizations look to sift through and make sense of the all the structured and unstructured data available to them, dashboards are being positioned as the solution to their problems. However, a dashboard needs special attention to the visual design or the dashboard will fail to meet expectations. If not carefully designed, a new dashboard can leave consumers unsatisfied, frustrated, confused, and even overwhelmed.

Aaron Hursman will share his experiences designing effective dashboards that deliver on the promise of targeted, accessible, and actionable information. He will discuss examples from both his personal work and contributions of thought-leaders in this space. Through these examples, he will present practical dashboard design techniques. He will also present effective approaches to take during design and construction. Finally, Aaron will explain the challenges and obstacles that dashboard designers face today, and how to mitigate the risks that result.

Live streaming will be available on the Ustream Channel, but that's no excuse not to show up in person.

If you think you might come please RSVP on Upcoming.

Come early (7:00) to mingle with like-minded designers and developers and then soak in a fresh presentation (7:30).

By the way, thanks to everyone who was able to make the presentation in person and via the live feed. The presentation was recorded on the ustream channel (note: slides and video were captured, but quality is not very clear).

I’ve uploaded the slides to my Slideshare site, but keep in mind that the presentation isn't as effective without the audio portion (note: these are the slides only...I’ll work in the coming days/weeks to add audio to these slides)
