NoVA UX January Meetup – Product Testing and Data-informed Design

Based on our poll results, the first meetup for 2013 will be a talk by Jim Lane (that's me) on Product Testing and Data-informed Design. I'll be sharing strategies and examples of design research we have done at AddThis, and how you can use those tools on your own projects. As always, there will be lively Q&A throughout.

Agenda:

6:30-7:00: Refreshments

7:00-8:00: Product Testing and Data-informed Design talk with Q&A

8:00-8:15: Announcements

8:15-8:45: Networking

Beverages will be provided by AddThis.

Food sponsor is TBD, please contact me directly if your organization would be interested in sponsoring food for this or another upcoming meetup - thanks!

    The functionality of the survey that you put up on the 21st has a real straightforward / clean look and feel to it. Assuming it is another item built in to the 'meetup' platform that continues to impress with it's little added values, anyway my question is just what did you think when you set it up- easy to set up and well thought out by them, or clunky, or whatever.

      It's a fairly rudimentary interface - easy to set up a simple poll, harder/not possible to do anything too complicated. If I wanted to do something more comprehensive I'd probably use SurveyMonkey.

      Sure, yeah; they just continue to impress by doing the little things pretty well. More than I would have expected... maybe I would even say warranting a good score for meeting the user's requirements. 7? 8?

    MUCH better than the HTML5 vs Java guys you had the time before. (Sorry HTML5 vs Java guys.) You offered up more nuts-and-bolts, meat-and-potatoes of "how it gets done" and much less management-speak and marketing talk.

    Great presentation and it's one of the few meetups where I have actually learned a lot of useful information. Nice to see real companies with solid traffic like AddThis sharing their experience.

    Is there a link with the presentation or at least a list of tools you were talking about?

    • Jim L.

      Thanks Alex- I'm going to post the presentation to SlideShare today and share the link here on Meetup, stay tuned.
