More about Jeff Gothelf and the topic:  

Traditionally UX Design has been a deliverables practice. Wireframes, sitemaps, etc defined the practice of UX Design (IA, IxD, UI Design etc). While this work has helped define what a UX Designer does and their value, it has also put designers in the deliverables business – measured & compensated for the quality of their deliverables (instead of the success of the experiences they design). Enter Lean UX - the practice of bringing the experience to light faster, with less emphasis on deliverables and greater focus on the actual experience being designed.

Lean UX is a methodology of marrying Agile and User Experience design in a way that can work in any size company and any development environment. Attendees will take away clear, tactical ways to incorporate this way of working that will have them delivering better designs, faster in a more collaborative manner.

Jeff Gothelf is the author of the upcoming O'Reilly book (2012), Lean UX: Getting Out of the Deliverables Business. He is an Agile practitioner, interaction designer, user experience team leader, blogger, public speaker , author and design/product thinker. Jeff is currently the Director of User Experience at in NYC where he lead a team of interaction designers, visual designers and copywriters in pursuit of reinventing the online jobs industry.

    There was a diversity of presentations, among which I found a couple that were relevant for me. I also was able to find a number of useful contacts.
    I got everything that I expected from a such kind of event.

    The presenting companies and speakers were great. I'd like to see more time dedicated to networking at the start of the event.

    I really liked this meetup! This was my firs meetup in NJ and I thought it would be not as good as meetups in Manhattan, but it was in fact better than many meetups I attended in Manhattan. Good venue, good speakers. Thanks Aaron!
