Recordings of presentations from all UX Australia conferences (main conference plus smaller topical conferences), from 2009-2014.
What talk show hosts can teach us about research interviews
Talk show hosts know all about uncovering deep insights – after all, that’s their bread and butter. In this talk, Kimberley from Meld Studios will share what she has learned from watching and listening to the best interviewers in TV and radio. Please note, this will be an Alan Jones-free zone.
Why design sprints are awesome and how to run one
Running a half day, or, a full day design sprint is intimidating if you have never run a design sprint before. I’ll focus on why design sprints are awesome, tips for how to include non-designers, my go-to design exercises, and provide a sample agenda to get you started.
The no-a*****e rule
In my usability and user research recruiting I’m worried that I’m getting too many nice people who are self-selecting to participate because they are giving and supportive people. To have a well-rounded picture, we need to talk to the jerks. How do I find the jerks?
One piece at a time
Whether you’re drowning in data or struggling for insights the hardest thing can be getting a project out of the gate. Like Johnny Cash sang, the key is to take it “One Piece at a Time.” I’ll talk about ways to rethink starting (or re-starting) a project without getting overwhelmed.
When the city becomes the interface: From third-wave interaction to city apps
If we think about the city as an operating system, what would the digital interfaces through which we interact with the city look like? This talk will walk through a series of experimental prototypes and discuss challenges and design lessons learned through their deployment in urban space.
VicRoads case study: Bigger, better and responsive
Interested in responsive design? Richard and Jolanda will share their key insights in redesigning one of the most highly trafficked Victorian Government websites into a smart, engaging experience. Learn about the challenges of responsive design for large websites and how they resolved them. The VicRoads website will go live one month before the conference.
