What is World Usability Day?
World Usability Day is an initiative started in 2005 by the Usability Professionals’ Association with the mandate of “Making Life Easy”. The primary goal is to raise public awareness about the development of technology that serves people first. For the last 4 years, the second Thursday of November has seen over 200 events in 43 different countries geared toward making technology easier to use.
