Slides and Q&A notes from the Digital Dialogues talk on Feb 29

Thanks to all for coming out to the AIGA Digital Dialogues talk with @gradybritton and @knuckleheadspdx on the build of the Choicelunch iPhone app. The discussion was particularly great, especially re: prototyping for the focus group and adopting a lean ux workflow, so I thought I'd post some of the highlights.

Planning internal usability lab

We're setting up a small internal usability lab at work to use for usability testing and PET interviews. I'm planning to use 2 rooms: one for interviewer and participant and one for observer.
