Parking at RIM

Although parking at RIM can sometimes be a challenge, it shouldn’t be a problem at this time of day. Security knows that we’ll be descending on the usability lab, so feel free to park in any available spot — even outside the designated visitor parking.

Event Description

Join us for a tour and demonstration of RIM’s usability lab. While snacking on coffee and cookies, we’ll hear about some of RIM’s work on testing their Blackberry devices and talk with each other about current methods in usability testing.


To help us estimate numbers, please RSVP to the UX group coordinators if you’re hoping to attend. (Note: No need to RSVP again if you’re a Communitech member and have already done so via Wanda Eby.)

    Does your Ottawa branch have a usuabilty lab that they would be willing to tour? 🙂

  3. @Kat: Will have to let someone from RIM weigh in on that question! In the meantime… this tour is just, what, a six hour drive down the 401?

  4. Hi, Kat.

    While we do have RIM offices in Ottawa and frequently do studies in that lovely location, we do not have a dedicated lab that interested folks like you could tour.

    Regrets… Susie
