Slides from my "Usability Testing How To's" workshop with Event Handler.
Westminster Hub, London UK 22 January 2014
Who is it for?
This workshop is for those who want to create products that will be easy to use. Usability testing is an important part of the process of designing digital products, but it can often be overlooked due to time, money, and training constraints. In this workshop you'll learn how to test any product's usability without spending a large amount of time and money. And how to use what you've learned to improve the product.
Who is it taught by?
This workshop is being taught by Evgenia Grinblo @grinblo, User Experience Specialist at mobile agency, Future Workshops. Born in Siberia, Jenny freelanced and trained in ethnographic research in Israel and the USA, before bringing her talent to the UK. Her pet peeve is badly written error-messages and she has a growing collection of them. You'll find her speaking on empathy, UX, and other passions.
