As an HCI academic, user researcher, and UX trainer, I've realized how teaching-learning activities based on Everett McKay's UI is Communication brilliant and comprehensive book can produce positive sustainable pedagogical impacts in terms of HCI/UX/usability literacy and maturity for university students, professionals, practitioners, managers, and policy makers. I would strongly recommend reading and engaging with Everett McKay's UI is Communication comprehensive book to the global community of individuals involved in human-computer interaction (HCI), user experience (UX), and usability, including computer scientists and software engineers, behavioral and cognitive scientists, UX professionals, usability professionals, designers, and end users.

I had a great experience taking the UX Design Essentials course offered by UX Design Edge. It gave me the confidence to make decisions related to UX design in my current work and know I was making the right choice.
I have attended other seminars and courses on UX and most were more theory or research based. This course was much more "hands-on" and better in terms of getting me started in UX design, giving me more confidence in my design decisions and having reasons why to back it up should I need to influence others within my team.
Everett was a very prominent figure in User Experience at Microsoft. He is the father of the Windows User Experience Guidelines for the entire company. He was one of the very few that were technically talented and also very knowledgeable about User Experience.
