XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

They don't fit in. :)

Here's why:

XP relies on a "customer" to decide which features should be implemented
and when. A "customer" may be a product/project manager, customer service
employee, a marketing resource, etc.

XP & Usability

We've been doing Agile Programming with large parts of eXtreme
Programming (the degree of the difference has a holy war status for some
folks) with a focus on usability.

Usability components include: UI prototype which was created at the
start of the project, and has evolved over the course of things. It is
reviewed internally and by Joint Development Partners (similar to XP
customers, but story selection is controlled by an internal person).
The prototype is maintained by our usability expert.

XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

I'm interested in hearing from anyone here who has experience (good or bad)
with the Scrum/XP (eXtreme Programming) process for software development and
how Interaction Design, Human Factors and Usability fit in.

Hi everyone,
Most of you have heard that ABC TV filmed a segment of the show "20/20" in
our Design & Usability Testing Lab.

NYC face to face interest?

[Please do not reply to the list when replying to this message.]

Hey there,

I know it is the holiday season and all, and people might be busy, but I for
now want to at least get a sense of who on this list is in the NYC area.
To answer that question, ask yourself if you would be willing to come to
Manhattan (or other borough) for a face 2 face meeting once a quarter from
where you reside or work.

Flash usage question

Hi all,

My team is trying to weigh the benefits of
implementing a pop-up flash animation presentation
with narrated audio (no annoying music) to showcase
the features and the benefits of using our website.
The presentation would be a linear movie but would
allow the user to pause, rewind, fast-forward & stop
the presentation at anytime.

Services and Interaction Design

How does a service-oriented approach to business affect the design of
software products?

A current business trend is organizing software products and personnel
around services, rather than organizing around software products.

Seeking Interaction Designers That Can Address The Development of Online Collaboration Tools

Hello,

I am trying to identify who and where are interface designers that have
specialized themselves or that are looking to focus specifically on the
design of real-time collaboration tools.

I am in the process of helping a few web conferencing companies refine or
completely upgrade their user interface and I have found it terribly
difficult to find designers that had a keen sense of what is needed in these
types of situations.

The main issue for me is that these types of interfaces require a very
minimalist approach, the ability to visually escalate in complexity as more
advanced function

what makes for a "good" interaction?

Since we are here to discuss interaction design as its own discipline, i was
wondering "what makes for a 'good' interaction?"

Yes, the term "good" is vague on purpose, as I really don't even know the
parameters.
I know what is usable or findable, but I don't know what is a 'good'
interaction.
