World Usability Day (WUD) is a one-day series of events occurring around the world that brings together communities to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.
WUD has a rich history in the Puget Sound, and events have taken place here for more than thirteen years. Within those years, various companies have held their own WUD events—sometimes public, sometimes private—including Microsoft, Google, Boeing, and Disney. Eventually a group of like-minded professionals came together with the goal of making Puget Sound WUD an event in which the entire UX community could always be a part of.
This became PSWUD, an opportunity for industry professionals, students, career changers, influencers, local companies, and the passionately curious, to be part of a celebration and learn more about design, its impact, and usability.
