For our first official meet-up for the Agile UX group, we thought it would be a great idea to have a talk on best practices in UX design. An area that I'm sure will raise a lot of interesting discussion points.
The theme of the talk will be; UX Design and the 7 Deadly Sins
(There's actually 10 sins in this talk but hey! I'm a sucker for a catchy title.)
We will look at the do's of UX design by dissecting the don'ts! covering:
• Abundance of features
• Trying to create the final design at first try
• Neglecting mobile
• Wasting money on buzzword experts
• Doing pointless UX research/experiment
• Not continuing usability research after release
• Being afraid of new things ...
and Why? you should avoid them at all costs!

Live Drawing/Visualisation :-)
I'm excited to announce that we will have the lovely Aurora Suriel from Thoughtworks doing a live drawing of the talk. Following the great feedback from the Visualisation Meet-up we did recently I thought it would be great for the community to see a live visualisation and pick up some tips in the process. @aurorasuriel (https://twitter.com/aurorasuriel)
