It’s time to pack our bags and head off to Lisbon, Portugal for UXLx 2013. In this show we talk about the things you should think about and prepare before attending a conference in order to get the most out of it. We also look at the programme for UXLx 2013, chat about the workshops we’re attending and have a little look at the conference day itself.
Three jam-packed days of UXLx have whizzed by. 4 workshops, 4 lightning events, 10 conference talks, fair few glasses of wine and beer, an incredible number of conversations with a whole load of really smart people.
In this 6th and last podcast from Lisbon at UXLx we give you a quick roundup of our favourite talks from the conference day on Friday plus a few reflections from fellow conference attendees Lynsey Thornton and Celine O’Niell.
Finally a few reflections and take-homes from the entire event.
(Listening time: 28 minutes)
As well as talking to Dave about his workshop and preparation for it, we also got a few tips of gamestorming techniques that we as web and UX people could find useful.
In the second part of the show, we give you a few quick impressions from this mornings workshops.

The afternoon of the first day of UXLx has included 2 lightning talks followed by a three hour workshop lecture. James and Per give you a quick run down and also talk about how workshops should be workshops.(Listening time: 12 minutes)

It’s the end of the first morning here at #uxlx and we’ve got our first workshops under out belts. James took part in David Gray’s Gamestorming session whilst Per took part in Peter Morville’s Cross-Channel Strategy workshop.
Here’s our initial thoughts from right after lunch…

This week we are recording from UXLx in Lisbon Portugal. We are planning to record a number of podcasts and cover both the workshops on Wednesday and Thursday and then the conference day on Friday.
Episode 12 comes from James and Per’s hotel room at the Trip Oriente. We had quite a fight with Garageband and our new microphones, but eventually, hungry and tried we got it all to work.
