ExploreTech Toronto Meetup - October 24, 2018
Details > Speakers Lisa Seelye will be speaking about SLO Creation And You: Or, How We Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Queue Length. Janna Cameron will be speaking about Using Comics to Share Research Results In a user researcher’s perfect world, stakeholders curl up with research reports, and commit every detail to memory. In reality, hours of good work can get maybe 5 minutes of attention. How might we condense findings, without sacrificing detail? Janna stumbled on a surprising and promising way to do this: Comics. In this talk, Janna is going to walk through an example of how she turns qualitative research interviews into comic strips. Even if you’re not a great artist, you can start using this tool. > Schedule 6.30pm - Doors open, grab food & say hello 7:00pm - Doors close & presentations starts 8.00pm - Presentations end 8.30pm - Doors close > Goals ExploreTech Toronto is about exploring and celebrating diversity in the tech industry - in the technology we use, the roles and people.
