New Location!

We are very pleased to welcome HootSuite as a new sponsor. Starting in September, our monthly meetings will be held in their offices on East 8th Avenue.

About the Presentation

User experience design methods can dramatically improve a product, but it is not immediately obvious how to make them fit into Agile projects. Successfully integrating UX designers into Agile software development can require adaptations across the team in both process and culture.

In this session, we’ll explore four critical challenges in incorporating UX design into Agile: 1) scheduling user-centered design work, 2) making time for iteration and user feedback in the design process, 3) managing and communicating change, and 4) ensuring consistency and cohesion across product features.
