IxDA Utah

Message to the group

The IxDA is all about bringing interaction designers together. The life of a designer is a busy one and we may not all be able to meet face to face as often as we'd like. This group site will help local IxDA members communicate, share ideas, inspire each other and hopefully help facilitate friendships around our passion for great design.

It's that time of month again folks! Time for free food, great socialization, collaboration, presentations, and general awesomeness. Time for Hack Night SLC's June installment. For those of you who haven't been out to Hack Night before, come give it a try!

We are being hosted at Neutron Interactive's HQ again this month, so there are plenty of break out rooms, whiteboards, a slide and ping pong table. All to help you break out of creative ruts, build new apps, and work on that project you have been kicking around in your head.

Usability testing services

At the end of my presentation at Salt Lake Design week yesterday, I engaged in a conversation about usability testing services. Here's a list of some of those services: UserlyticsUserTesting.comYouEye, and TryMyUI. In addition to being inexpensive, these new services are generally more authentic and accurate as the user completes them in the comfort of their own, familiar environment.

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?
