local chapter lead by Alok b. Nandi, Architempo
IxDA, Interaction Design Association.
What is Interaction Design ?
Interaction Design (IxD) defines the structure and behavior of interactive products and services. Interaction Designers create compelling relationships between people and the interactive systems they use, from computers to mobile devices to appliances; Interaction Designers lay the groundwork for intangible experiences.
The Podio pitch ...
Meet Podio: people at the centre instead of technology.
Meet Podio on its future work world tour. Podio is an online work platform that gives people more power than they’ve ever had before to manage their work better, smarter and in their own way.
Traditionally, tools for work have not been developed for collaboration. Today, flooded inboxes, document and excel chaos is a common pain at work. Podio has set out to remove the pain from getting work done together and bring back the joy. Combining hundreds of specialized and flexible work apps with messaging, tasks, reporting, workflow and contact management, Podio lets you build and shape the online workplace most fitting to your role.
What to expect
An introduction to Podio, the underlying vision, and what role listening to users and creating a unique user experience played from the beginning on.
An open discussion and a small workshop session to get kick-started on Podio. Building apps together, exchanging stories, talks, and drinks.

The IxDA Manifesto: We believe that the human condition is increasingly challenged by poor experiences. IxDA intends to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design. To do this, we foster a community of people that choose to come together to support this intention. IxDA relies on individual initiative, contribution, sharing and self-organization as the primary means for us to achieve our goals.
