Agile and IxD: Embrace or Tolerate


Agile software development and Interaction Design are often viewed as conflicting practices. Software developers view IxD as making their job harder, and interaction designers see their work ignored at implementation time. Can these two views of the same process work together in a thriving environment, or must they always live in resigned co-existence? In this presentation, we will consider how the two practice can get along, in-spite of common causes of conflict.
