We are psychologists, visual designers, human factors engineers, front end developers, computer scientists and others. Founded in 1990 (!), TorCHI stands for Toronto Computer-Human Interaction and is a local chapter of the international organization ACM SIGCHI.

Time: Networking starts at 6:45pm, Presentation starts at 7pm
Location: Bahen Building, 40 St. George Street, Room 1180
TOPIC & PRESENTERS: How do UX specialists adapt and optimize UX practices for an Agile environment — and how do they try to tweak Agile practices to suit UX? To address these questions, ToRCHI has assembled a panel with a track record of sharing best practices on UX or Agile topics. They represent a good cross section in terms of organizations they’ve worked for, disciplinary backgrounds, and even their views on whether Agile has been a good thing for UX. So expect a lively discussion!
Our panelists are:
• Diane McKerlie: Design | Strategy Inc - President
This event is more than a panel — you’ll also participate in small group discussion. So bring your stories and questions to share too.
NETWORKINGAfter the event, we'll continue the conversation at O'Grady's171 College St.
