Share Agile, UX and Startups

Event Details

As suggested on our meetup group, we'll be talking agile, ux and startups.


Agenda:

We'll have 3 lightning talks, 20 min each, with Q&A and a discussion afterwards.

 

Sjors Timmer (@sjors) will share his experience, and suggested the topic:

"Most start-ups work on an agile basis, and the ux designers working there -often a ux-team of one- have come up with all kinds of ways to deal with the extreme time and budget constrains. A meetup about sharing ideas, tips and tricks!"

 

Andrew Travers (@byekick): Fast, quick, cheap - pick, erm, three

"I'll be talking about what it's like to go from a blank sheet of paper to a complete design concept in five days, working in collaboration with a client and involving usability testing every step of the way. I was lucky to work with Leisa Reichelt and Mark Boulton very recently on a really challenging project with limited budget, ambitious scope and very, very little time. I'll be explaining what turned this from being a potentially nightmarish project into the most satisfying thing I've worked on this year."

Andrew Travers is a freelance user experience designer. He writes infrequently at byekick.com and slightly more often on Twitter as @byekick.

 

Basheera Khan (@bash):

'll take a lightning fast look at the prime characteristics of a start-up that make an agile approach come naturally, and how one can encourage those characteristics in larger organisations - not just in the design and development teams, but beyond to all areas of the business. "

Basheera Khan (@Bash) is a former tech journalist turned freelance user experience designer. She is a co-founder of PlayNice.ly, a bug tracker and lightweight project management app for small software teams.
