Usability testing somehow ends up on the backburner for most of us, even though we all know how important it is. So let's test and be tested on together! Bring your product and work together in pairs and small groups. We'll take turns testing our products, features, etc. on one another while enjoying exquisite delicacies such as soda and chips. And if you're new to usability testing, don't worry -- we'll be on hand to help you get started.
NEW: We're now doing a 15-minute "how-to" workshop before the tests begin to help out the n00bs and act as a refresher for the rest of us.
7:15PM - Intro to Usability Testing
7:30PM through 10:00PM - Usability sessions
HOW IT WORKS
1. Everyone partners up. If you have any demographic preferences, be sure to speak up or let us know in advance.
2. Spend 15 minutes testing your product on your partner.
3. Spend 15 minutes testing and giving feedback on your partner's product.
4. Rinse and repeat with a new partner.
NOTE: This meetup is for designers, developers, product people, and startup folks who have a product or interface they actively want to test. Please do NOT attend if you are a recruiter or just curious about UX.
