• Agile & Lean UX Unconference
    Join us at Hanson for the first of our tri-annual Agile & Lean UX Unconference Series of Events. Pizza and drinks will be provided, complementary of Hanson. Unconferences are great at tackling interesting topics and spurring solid discussions. There is no set agenda but you will find the sessions engaging and you will get exactly what you need out of it. You should: • Be open to the experience • Come with a topic or three that you want to discuss, share your knowledge on, or ask for help - just no pitches or solicitations please. Timeline: • 6:30 pm - Doors open for food & networking • 7:00 pm - Topics are generated and voted upon • 7:15 pm - Unconference: Session 1 • 7:45 pm - Unconference: Session 2 • 8:15 pm - Unconference: Session 3 • 8:45 - Insights and Retrospective About the Unconference Format: An Unconference (also known in similar flavors as Open Space, or Lean Coffee) is where group members share their knowledge in open spaces. Sessions are generated and introduced by attendees and voted upon and discussed in small groups. There is no set schedule or agenda, so come with a few topics/questions in mind that you're hoping to discuss or get answers to. The agenda and facilitators are determined at the event on an ad hoc basis with several sessions taking place simultaneously. Members facilitate sessions and attendees attend sessions they are interested in. Topics: Keep your mind on the prowl for ideas regarding questions or topics you might have on Agile, Lean UX or user research that you're currently thinking about that you'd like to have discussed in small groups at the Unconference. Write them down as you think of them, so you don't forget them. Better yet, add them to the comments here on the Meetup event page. When you submit your RSVP, you will be prompted for 1-3 topics. Response is not required at time of RSVP though, so don't let that stop you from RSVP'ing right now. Location: Hanson is located in Arrowhead Park in Maumee, with ample parking for our guests. Special thanks to our friend Mike Osswald, VP of Experience Innovation at Hanson for coordinating this special event. Future Events: Want to sponsor a future event? If you’re interested in getting great visibility with local UXers, or have suggestions for local sponsors, please contact us on Meetup. Note: Sessions might be recorded and shared with other attendees if interest is desired.

  • Happy New UX!
    What does it take to craft a great experience for new users of a product? Once you're ready to move past MVP-stage, having learned what you needed to learn, there's still more to think about than merely what caoability to give our potential users and how that translates into functionality for the team to build. Enter the concept of "New UX". Join us online for an enlightening take on the idea of transforming new users into power users. It'd be nice if we could all perfect our intuition skills and creating absolutely 100% intuitive products 100% of the time, but that's more fantasy than reality. Thus, we need to leverage techniques that help us make our new users feel awesome! You'll learn: * A multitude of wrong ways to teach/train users on how to use their new product, with considerations for short attention spans and cognition limits. * How to craft contextual onboarding that simplifies the learning curve by delivering learnings at the last responsible moment to prevent information overload. * How we can leverage thought experiments to teach us what the right kinds of contextual learning should be. * What empty states are, and how you need to think about them in the context of your product and your users' goals in order to make them useful. * Who your new users are, and how they naturally and often unknowingly group themselves into specific cohorts that will inevitably cause friction when trying to grow the user base. * Tips and tricks to overcome those growth struggles to drive adoption early and often. * What marketing debt is, and how it affects your ability to grow the longer you ignore it * How we can make new users keep coming back, through consideration of habit formation tactics* Probably some more stuff. :) RSVP today to attend this online presentation. A link to the webinar will be posted the morning of the event.

    Due to the holiday and people's general unavailability, our weekly book club discussion has been delayed by a week. Instead, join us for an online discussion to keep the Lean UX conversation going between events.
