Come join us on March 19th to learn how to conduct guerrilla usability tests for your own product.

Guerrilla Usability Testing is an informal usability test that can be used to quickly gather feedback about your product at every stage of the development and design process.

Our UX designer, Katie Cerar (, will be guiding you through how to conduct these informal usability tests with customers to identify issues within your own product.

You can bring a product of your own to test in this workshop. It must be an artefact that can be shown to an user - can be of any fidelity (sketches, wireframes, prototypes or even a launched product).

If you're not working on anything in particular right now, you can still practice how to conduct usability tests using an existing application from your phone or laptop.

What to expect:

In this workshop, we will be taking you through the process of identifying usability issues by walking users through various test scenarios.

• We will be defining the scope of what you are testing for.

• Planning the scenarios that you will take your users through.

• Conducting test scenarios on each other, and learning how to take users through the tasks with non-leading questions.


Is this workshop for you?

We recommend this workshop for developers, product managers, marketing professionals and anyone who is looking to learn more about how they can involve their end-users within their product development process.

This workshop is for individuals of all skill-levels. You will not have needed to attend our other workshops to participate.
