Working as a Technical Writer, I VERY often see myself being put in
the final stage of the development process by management.

This is the first time I've posted to the list, and I'm hoping you can
help me. Our company is fairly new to the world of web application design,
having historically built COBOL-based desktop applications.

Any UX Teams doing Agile process in New York City area? (especially those in product-based companies)

Our company is moving over to an Agile development process and I'm wondering
if there are any IXDAers in product-based companies in or around New York
City that does Agile development that I may arrange to visit with.
I've been doing a lot of reading about Agile and UX, but am really feeling
the need to talk to someone face to face, see some examples of UX
deliverables that are generated in an Agile process, and maybe sit in on a
scrum or something to that effect.
Thank you,

David VanEsselstyn

Feature-driven development vs user-centereddesign

>I have to ask... why does it have to be one or the other or one over
>the other? And why does it even matter if they are the opposite of
>each other, if that's even true?

Agreed. My perception of "feature driven development" is that you build
the product incrementally, one feature at a time. Hopefully the first
feature you build is the most important one. This does not mean in any
way that the feature can't be a result of solid UCD research.

My shop is Agile right now, and we're making UCD work.

Wireframes, supporting documentation, and software choices

I completely agree with this.

Also, if it's an existing app, you might find it useful to start a
pattern library wiki.

first interaction designer: success or failure

H! usabilty like-minded people,

I reported earlier that I am the very first interaction designer at a company of 300 employees and I more or less had all the freedom to define my own function. As predicted by many of you the "empowered" designer stuff pops up. And there is another thing about having much freedom, it is noticed by others as well... (feel free to think far fetched thoughts).
