"Mixing Lean UX and Agile Development"

Using two specific case studies and learnings from other projects, I walk attendees through the weekly cadence that we use at Carbon Five during product development. This methodology and its activities establish a sustainable culture of integrated and invested teams that are able to communicate across disciplines in a meaningful way. The result of creating this type of culture via cadence allows our teams to put new features in front of users each week for validation and hence move the product closer to its market fit faster.

Biography: Courtney Hemphill

Courtney Hemphill is a Lead Developer at Carbon Five in San Francisco, CA. Over the past 10+ years, Courtney has used Agile and Lean techniques in a wide variety of web and mobile projects for clients including SFMOMA, Skype, Sharethrough, and BookRenter.

An outspoken advocate for integrating design processes into quick development cycles, Courtney and her teams consistently deliver high quality design and development for applications that test both code and interactions with real customers. She also coaches and speaks about techniques that optimize this feedback loop.

    I attended online and was great!

    This was a great meetup.

    One of the irrelevant things I remember though, was there was hummus with red pepper. It was yummy, and I had more. I have been fine, but there has been a hummus recall that might be relevant, so I'm noting this as a "better safe" measure. If whoever purchased the snacks knows whether they came from Target or Trader Joes (hopefully /somewhere else!/) that would be good to know.

      Hi Bob. These were not purchased at either. These were Sabra brand purchased from Costco.

    Great introduction by Elina. One of the best presentations I have heard this year. My first meeting with this Meetup group. Thank you!

    I agree with Elina. This was exceptionally articulate and great presentation. Not just the delivery but good depth of subject matter. You rock Courtney!

    Courtney rocked the house again and it was really interesting to hear the questions from the audience.. Who's responsibility is it to nurture and maintain a craft? :-)

    Very interesting presentation, now, how do I channel it to the guys back at work... hmm... anyhow, that's my problem. More like this please!

    This was a winner. I hope that the stream can become available later too.

    Looks like this would have been a winning presentation but time caught up with me and when i last looked at the clock it was already 6:35PM. Will try and change the RSVP acceptance in advance next time.

    Can't make it, unfortunately. I've seen Courtney present twice, and it's pretty cool to see how UX and dev collaborate in real time.
