The UX of Construction Equipment — Friday, November 30 3PM @ Hunt

Yes, there is UX in construction! David will address the UX of vehicles, and example by example, discuss its challenges, successes and failures. His discussion will include the problems he faces at Cat, but also inspiration he has found at other manufacturers.

Please bring your questions to the meetup!

David Hedley is an electrical engineer by training, specializing in embedded systems. He was raised and educated in England, then moved to Silicon Valley, where he worked with microprocessors for nearly two decades. Today though he is is Engineering Team Leader for UX at Caterpillar, here in the Triangle.

As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX, technology, and design. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun. If you'll come, please RSVP!
