2012 Main Conference Talk
Topic(s): agile, process, and UX
Designers, IAs – want to really know what your Agile team members think about UX? Want to know how to truly be on the team, how to work smoothly within the Agile process, and how to leverage Agile to make your work more effective?
Dorelle and Mike have partnered on multiple Agile teams, translating a desktop product into both mobile and tablet channels. Based on their experience together (as a UX designer and a software engineer/ScrumMaster) they will give their perspectives on how to effectively integrate UX design practices into an agile team. This is a practical session with real-world examples of both successes and challenges. They will tell you what’s worked well and what hasn’t, and how they’re continually adapting their processes as the team grows and changes. This session is a chance for UXers to learn about effective Agile and UX from an engineering perspective.
