For our May UXDTN meetup we've got Mike Miserendino and Suzi Shapiro from GravityDrive in Indianapolis traveling out to talk with us. Remember we cancelled them in February due to bad weather? They're back!
When you've got something to build and a competitor has a similar successful product you ask "Can't I just copy UX success?"
No, not really.
You need to do user experience research involving the appropriate people as you design your website, product, or service.
Come and explore the use of research tools to help you learn more about how people think and work.
Join us as we walk our way through a User Experience Design process for Wally, who wants a web site to sell his wallets. He thinks all he needs to do is to put his content into the format of an already successful e-commerce site.
Learn about potential customers through activities involving the session attendees and see how this information can be used to create a better design for Wally’s products. A good introduction to the UX process and a fun review for UX groupies.
As usual we'll have a half hour of networking and light refreshments from 5:30 to 6:00, some announcements, meet the sponsors, and then Suzi's talk from 6:00 to 7:00. And sometimes a group goes out afterward.
Hope to see you there. Darren
