If anybody out there lives in or near San Francisco, and has a couple hours to spare to have some fun with brand-new Autodesk products, I have an invitation to pass along from Frederic Loranger of Autodesk Labs:
Autodesk recently opened a brand new Usability Lab in our office in San Francisco, and Autodesk Labs will conduct a usability study on October 30th and 31st. I would like to personally invite you to participate in this study, which will be all about rating new delivery methods for our heavy desktop applications. The study will involve rating the user experience through a series of small exercises using AutoCAD 2009 and/or Inventor 2009, and will take a maximum of 1.5 hours. Previous experience with either product is not necessary.
Please contact me by email If you would like to participate in the survey (Frederic.Loranger@autodesk.com). I’ll make sure to provide you with a time slot that fits your schedule.
Thanks for considering this opportunity,
Be the first on your block to test-drive a new product! I hope if you have a few extra hours you'll consider signing up.
