Usability Testing with Meetup's Strategy Team

Join us this month as we go to Meetup HQ and learn how they create, evolve and experiment engaging designs.


Description: Usability testing is a way of life at Meetup HQ, where they run NYC's busiest in-house usability lab.  We have people come to our office almost every day to interact with our ideas, from initial conception to working prototype.  In this talk you'll hear from us (Meetup's strategy team) about:

  • Why we do usability testing
  • How we do it: recruiting, moderating, sharing results
  • How user testing makes our lives easier (especially for our designers)


(Meetup's homemade mobile user testing rig that has lasted years and helped us get insight from hundreds of Meetup members and Organizers!)


Andres Glusman, VP of Strategy & Community at Meetup

Anna Howell, Lead UX Researcher

Brenna Lynch, UX Researcher

    Lots of interesting insights old and new. I hope Meetup does these every once in a while; the whole affair is a really salient example of an organization actually putting their money where their mouth is in terms of incorporating usability.

    Every start-up should strive for Meetup's unrelenting focus on user experience and feedback. The motto of "No Mockup is too Crude" sets the team free to fail fast and learn.
