[EVENT] IxDA Austin // Tuesday, Nov 30 // You Don't Know Me at All! User Research for the Cheap and Lazy

Hey, we know you're not actually cheap or lazy... you just live in the real world! Your project is behind schedule. Your funding got cut. Your team is understaffed and doesn't know the first thing about the users! How can you be expected to put together user profiles or personas under those circumstances?

It's not a lost cause. You've still got options!
We'll cover:
different types of research to consider
sources of important and FREE information

More interactive jobs / less interactive

I agree with Cheryl Kimble. I chuckle (to myself) when someone in their
twenties hands me his or her business card with the job title of
"senior ____" (fill in the blank with the job description of choice).
Too many people want to put the word "senior" in front of their job
title after just 2 or 3 years in the field. Also, many employers have a
misguided expectation that these young people will be able to produce
the same quality of work with the same level efficiency as a truly more
senior employee.

Need Help with Data Collection

Hi Folks.

I'll be conducting a study to analyze the impact of
ego, caffeine, work load, and Daylight Savings Time on
the social dynamics of email discussion groups, as I'd
like to better understand which of these factors most
directly fuel indulgent sniping.

If you'd like to help me with this project or you too
think we need much more petty bickering, please
contact me immediately.

Thanks in advance!

Do you Yahoo!?

There's still time to register for the PhizzPop Design Challenge and see your IxDA Peers.

Hey folks,

We've still got space at our design challenge events in NYC, Chicago, LA, Austin and Boston. NYC is filling up quickly and you'll be able to meet one of IxDA's very own founders David Malouf who will be judging! I weep for the contestants and wish them good luck! :)

Other events will have interesting judges as well, including Carlos Segura in Chicago, Luke W in Austin, and Lou Carbone in LA.

The events are free and the cocktails are on Microsoft.

Poorly designed product detail pages


I have recently been reviewing the product information pages of a number of
different sites and come up with a list of themes which I consider
problematic to the design.
