The Wufoo team will be returning back to Austin to make a ruckus at our favorite convergence of web nerds, design geeks and coding hooligans.
##SXSW Interactive 2010
March 12 – March 16
[Austin Convention Center](http://sxsw.com/getting_around/austin_convention_center)
It’s a little known fact that it was after a day of inspirational sessions at SXSW (many years ago) that the founders of Wufoo were given the idea that they might be better off quitting their jobs to form their own software company. For those interested, here’s the [sessions I’m thinking of trying to attend](http://my.sxsw.com/user/schedule/unfoldedorigami). If you’re heading to Austin for the big event, please do seek us out and say howdy!
##Experimental Design: Your User Interface Is Your Laboratory
Sunday, March 14 at 3:30 PM
I’ll be presenting at SXSW on a panel with Mike McDerment from **Freshbooks**, Victoria Ransom from **Wildfire Interactive** and Ben Tily from **Google** about web application design decisions that evolved from insights gained from user testing and lots of iterations. We’ll each be presenting 3 cases from our own experiences and hope to leave plenty of room to answer your questions about better design through testing.
