• Mobbing with UX Designers by Chris Lucian, Austin Chadwick, and Gary Saunders

    Do your UX designers, UI designers, front-end developers, and back-end developers work as a team?

    Or individual silos?

    Lean UX may have removed some waste but Mob Programming breaks down the interpersonal barriers to achieve true collaboration.

    Misunderstandings fade away.

    Empathy grows rapidly.

    The customer receives the fully realized product vision born of a real cross-team effort.

    We have seen this style of work increase flow, delivered value, and market experimentation.

  • Challenges and Triumphs of Remote User Testing

    Online event

    Join for an evening with Chris Farnum from General Motors as he discusses the challenges and triumphs of remote user testing.

    Three years ago Chris went

    FROM:
    being a UX designer-who-also-did-user-testing

    TO:
    being a fully dedicated UX Researcher.

    Given the overall state of the world, he hasn't seen the inside of a lab in over a year.

    During this session he'll describe how remote user testing works from his desk at home.

    This session is especially for UX Designers interested in expanding their knowledge of how remote testing works and when to do it.

    Session will start at approximately 7:05pm EST.

  • Agile & Lean UX Unconference

    Location visible to members

    This is a part of our tri-annual Agile & Lean UX Unconference Series of Events.

    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.

    Location:

    We are currently looking for a fresh company to host us and sponsor food. If you recommend someone, and they host or sponsor, you win a prize from the mystery swag bag. If they host + sponsor, pick two prizes! Message Scott Showalter through meetup with your recommendations.

    Note: Sessions might be recorded and shared with other attendees.

    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.
