Personas are a staple part of the UX Design process.
Some people love them, some hate them. Some consider them a complete waste of time.
They can be skinny, fat, just sketchy or detailed. Often they are confused with their marketing cousins.
No matter what you think of them done right with the correct amount of research, behavioural based personas can be powerful tool you can integrate into the rest of your UX life cycle.
Learn in this session how to do just that! How to make Personas Work.

Stories work but need believable characters to engage us and be remembered.
People remember and engage with people.

Tuesday's are problematic for me at the moment. I'll have to play it by ear.
Awesome list of pre-reading!

Yeah understand, Mondays have become an issue for me, hence the move to Tuesdays. That list is the shortened list by the way... lots of discussion around Personas
