Each year TriMet’s Creative Services staff participates in a team building session to celebrate and support the concepts of usabililty. This year they competed in the Computer-Human Interaction Forum of Oregon (CHIFOO)’s 2011 Usability Hunt. It’s part of World Usability Day that was founded in 2005 as an initiative of the Usability Professionals’ Association to ensure that services and products important to human life are easier to access and simpler to use. Each year, on the second Thursday of November, over 200 events are organized in over 43 countries around the world to raise awareness for the general public, and train professionals in the tools and issues central to good usability research, development and practice. TriMet had two team entries (TriMetUXers and TMCreates) in the local CHIFOO’s contest and team TriMetUXers took first place with 34 out of 38 points. See the results and read more here.
