Usability Testing for Developers

In an ideal world, usability testing might be considered the job responsibility of UX designers or researchers – but for many developers, for various reasons, that situation just isn’t a reality. No matter what your situation is, I’m here to assure you that running basic usability tests is something you are completely capable of – and it comes with the bonus of making you a better developer, as well. In this session, we’ll discuss finding participants, thinking through the testing logistics, writing and facilitating a usability test, and then reviewing the data.
