People have been asking me for years when I’m going to be speaking near [insert name of country in Europe here].
I’m basically a stay-at-home kind of guy, so my answer has always been some variant of “One of these days. Hopefully. Maybe.”
Next week, it’s actually going to happen.
On Thursday (20 Sept.) thanks to the good folks running the From The Front 2012 conference, I’ll be teaching my day-long “learn how to do your own usability testing” workshop in Bologna, Italy. Details and registration are at http://fromthefront.it and the first five people using the discount code “rocketsurgery” can save 20% on workshop registration.
I’m also giving the opening keynote at the conference on Friday (21 Sept.), and the code “skrug” will give the first five users 20% off on conference registration. It’s a full day of really good speakers in a fabulous XVII Century theater.
Both events will be conducted in English, with opt-in simultaneous translation available for the conference.
(BTW, I’m as puzzled by the pirate motif of the conference site as you are. Don’t worry about it. The producers are really nice, smart people. I just figure it’s a cultural thing.)
