Hack Night at Carbon Five LA - UX Personas for Coders

Carbon Five LA bi-weekly, intimate hack night for developers who want to code and collaborate for a couple of hours after work. Bring your own project or work with someone else. Developers of all experience levels are welcome. There will be at least a couple Carbon Five folks around to help out.

We have presentation on UX by Lane Halley called "Personas for Coders". Personas are a way to think about who "the user" is and how he or she would use your software. Come learn about how personas can provide focus on the most important features, guidance about how those features fit together, and information about how much capability a feature really needs to provide.

Doors open around 6pm, the presentation will happen at 7pm, and we'll keep hacking until 9pm (sometimes later). Bring your laptop and a project to work on. We'll provide the infrastructure, food, and beverages.

ps. If the gate in front of the building is locked, dial #3333 to buzz yourself in.

      Sorry I missed it Lane, just the slides were extremely educating. (And I don't think I've ever used those words before.)
