6:30pm Gather, meet, chat, and eat pizza provided by Obtiva 6:45pm You Got Your Agile in My UXD presented by Noel Rappin Integrating user experience design and Agile development is a simple matter of... wait, it’s not a simple matter at all. Nevertheless, Noel will show us that it is possible for designers and developers to work harmoniously in a unified Agile team. 7:15pm How Agile Design Research Improved Obama’s Campaign Software presented by Paul Baker & Billy Belchev It’s your responsibility to know how people are using that product you spend so much time developing. The good news is that design research can be performed in the real world more quickly than you think. For example, a team of Agile web designers from Webitects were sent in to help inform the redesign of Obama’s campaign software. With pictures and video, Paul and Billy will present what they learned, and how you can apply it to your own projects. 8:15pm Monthly Site Critique: EveryBlock led by Nick Disabato As usual, we plan to wrap up the event with a site critique. This is a highly interactive, rapid-fire segment led by different web professional each month. The leader will choose the site in question and prepare a few notes ahead of time in order to guide the group. This month's leader, Nick Disabato, is the writer of a forthcoming book on interaction design entitled Cadence & Slang. It should be a great analytical segue to more conversation and drinks after the meetup, so stick around! 8:30pm Head over to Dylan's for continued conversation and drinks

    There was a tie in the food poll, so we decided to go with Mediterranean cuisine from Hiafa Café.

    Hey everybody, I just opened a new poll: "What food would you prefer to have at Refresh meetups?" The votes will determine which food will be provided at Wednesday's meetup. http://www.meetup.com/Refresh-C...­

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
