Jobs in Seattle

Hello everyone,

I'm a user experience designer currently working in Utah, and I'm trying to get a better feel for the job landscape in Seattle. My husband just got accepted to the MBA program at UW, and before we make any final decisions about whether we should go there, we wanted to find out more about what my job prospects will be like.

How do you incorporate user testing into Agile Mobile Design?

I recently had dinner with one of my heroes and fellow Rosenfeld Media workshop leaders, Steve Krug. We had a long conversation about how to make mobile usability testing work for Agile mobile design projects. 

The free webinar (link below) is the result.

Have you tried my PostIt notes methodology, and if so, what do you think? What techniques do you yourself use for Agile usability testing and RITE?
