Registered But Can’t Make It? Please Let Us Know!

We’re very exited about the huge response for next week, when Dinner 4 will be hosted by Google. In fact, as you have surely noticed, we’ve already filled up our available spaces and created a waiting list.

For those who do have a spot via EventBrite, if you discover you can’t make it, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer that space to someone on our waiting list. Send Stevi the email you used to register.

Thanks to everybody for helping us make sure as many people who want to come can, thanks to Google for sponsoring us, and we look forward to seeing you!

Topic of the evening:

User Experience Design: the way of the Geek Artist
The best of both worlds. How minimalist design aesthetic and “form becomes function” make apps fast and elegant as well as usable, and how having geek skillz lifts a designer out of the “make it pretty” ghetto in product teams.

About the Speaker:
Dorothy Nelson is a User Experience Design Manager at Google. She has been programming and designing user-focused front end interfaces since the mid 1980s, from Bell Communication Research and Oracle to uber-dot-bomb Webvan, then to eBay (designing the selling experience) and Google. In her spare time, Dorothy enjoys traditional “dirty-hands” arts involving charcoal and ink and the non-traditional art of Silly Putty sculpture, as well as horsing around with her non-artistic but lovable husband and Yellow Labradors.
Please find street parking as Google cannot provide parking. There should be plenty of parking options with the lots, street and garages.
