UX NIGHT
Build for Speed:
How to Prototype and Test Any Product in Five Days
with Daniel Burka & Jake Knapp from Google Ventures


The current methodology for building applications is broken. Most teams go through the classic agile pattern: ideate, build, launch, measure, iterate, repeat. Even when executed efficiently, this process stifles innovation under the burden of engineering and product launching. Using real-world examples, Daniel and Jake will show how to test your theses more quickly and increase the overall effectiveness (and happiness!) of your team. 


Schedule:
6:00-7:00PM: Networking Hour, Food & Beverages sponsored by Eventbrite
7:00-8:20PM: Presentation, Q&A from audience
8:20-9:00PM: Audience stand-ups and more networking!
