Mark HatchWelcome to ICS' November Newsletter

With Thanksgiving in the rear view, you’re probably working at breakneck speed to wrap things up for the year. I know we are. But, before holiday parties, family vacations and some well-earned time off fill your calendar, I want you to consider registering for our Dec. 13 live webinar Software Interface Design for Medical Devices: Enhancing Patient Outcomes and Minimizing Device Recalls. We’ll discuss the role of UX design, share key industry research and help you uncover effective ways to mitigate medical device development risk. If you work in this realm, or in another safety-critical industry, it is definitely worth an hour of your time!

You can find details in this issue of our newsletter. You can also read blogs on QTimer, the over-use of buttons in interface design, and a wrap-up of the U.S. installment of Qt World Summit, held in Boston a few weeks back. (The European event will take place next week in Berlin — we hope to see you there.) And, to help you plan for the upcoming year, we’ve included our Qt training dates for the first half of 2019.
