October was a crazy month. We packed so much into this month from a content perspective that we're desperately looking forward to some breaks near the end of the year. Not only do we have a whole bunch of awesome stories for you, but we also covered HFES this month. If you missed anything from this year's conference, be sure to check out our coverage.
Consider joining us on Discord or on any of our social media communities (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to continue the conversation with the hosts, and an audience of worldwide Human Factors and UX professionals!
66th Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Annual Meeting
We sat down for a 10 hour livestream on the opening Tuesday of the conference and had a bunch of folks from around the HF world stop by. In this livestream we also had the opportunity to witness the opening plenary session and keynote. This 10 hour livestream was the first of its kind from the conference and we hope to continue this trend in the future!
