Austin UXPA is a local chapter of the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) (http://uxpa.org/). We are a non-profit, volunteer-run 503(c) charity with the goal of providing educational and networking events for user experience designers, researchers, information architects and developers.
We generally meet the first Tuesday of the month in Austin, but the location varies.
Our 2018 Board and Advisory members include: Donna Habersaat, Lawrence Najjar, Danielle Mundle, Ellen Lazaretti, Reyda Taylor, Srikant Chari, Kristin Sullivan, Bart Renner, Kate Moon, Lori Lopez, Kailyn Lim, Erika Grijalva, Larissa Bemis, Andrea Beaumont.
Membership is completely free, but donations keep the Meetup site running and help us put on awesome events! We graciously accept donations through Paypal (https://www.paypal.me/austinuxpa), or contact Danielle Mundle, treasurer, through Meetup DM.
We will review the remote usability testing methods that are available to UX researchers and dive into best practices for qualitative remote research including moderated and unmoderated approaches.
We will cover:
- When to use remote methods versus in-person methods
- How to run successful remote studies
- How to present arguments for remote research to your stakeholders
- Available tools including DIY, self-service and managed options
Inge De Bleecker has been designing and testing web, mobile, and voice experiences for more than 20 years. She builds and leads UX teams and evangelizes UX throughout organizations. She is fascinated by the communication between humans and devices. Her mantras are "design for everyone" and "test early and often." Inge has run over 200 remote studies across different industries, languages, and regions. She finds remote studies a powerful and effective way to gather user feedback that would otherwise be difficult to collect.
What we'll do:
At this meeting we will describe in detail the different positions and their responsibilities. For each Board of Director position, we are looking to have two volunteers fill that role. We prefer to have 2 people per role as back-up to ensure coverage for emergencies, vacations, and unexpected popups in life. We hope that you will find a position of interest and can help contribute to the growing UX community in Austin.
TBD, will be updated soon
