MinneWebCon 2010 Session on User Testing / UX


For the third year running, I had the pleasure of speaking at MinneWebCon this April. Three co-speakers and I presented about iterative user testing using a case study that examined the touch screen building directory I've posted about before.

The title of this year's session was "Improve User Experience with Informal User Testing." My co-speakers were Kamran Ayub, Ken Loomis, and Ethan Poole. Here is the abstract:

Learn how you and your team can greatly improve your web user experiences by doing informal user testing with little cost. This session's case study will examine a 100% web-based touch screen building directory kiosk recently created by a University of Minnesota web team. Expect to hear actual tips and tricks, problems and solutions, and lessons learned from executing a user test driven development process. As a bonus, see how you can use your current web skills to create more than just web sites.

I also spoke at MinneWebCon in 2008 and 2009 with the sessions: "Standardizing Web User Interfaces" and "Semantic, Accessible HTML is Good for Business".
