Getting Real
We heard it from 37Signals

“Your idea about the problem”

  • From 1.0 to 1.5.1, after each release we invite 3 of our friends, might be designers, students, or just someone who is not familiar with our website to our office. We do the usability test plan and report based on the book 'Don't make me think''s last three chapters, and used the software SilverBack (http://silverbackapp.com/) to record the session.
