    How Can UX Fit into Agile?

    The challenges of maximizing the effectiveness of UX in an Agile environment are not all that different from the challenges we've faced when working alongside waterfall. Regardless of the development methodologies our organizations adopt we should be aware of the historic and cultural issues that often impede our effectiveness, before we attempt to align ourselves with their methodologies. We'll review those issues that can trip us up, review a few key goals of Agile, a common Agile process, team structures & roles then walk through points in their methodology where we can have the most impact.

    Speaker:

    Shawn Kenney is a UXPA Cleveland member and an HFI certified usability analyst who is currently a UX Architect and Evangelist with Oracle, where he is focused on assisting development organizations across Oracle's Global Business Units with adopting methodologies that support cross functional collaboration such as Agile and Design Thinking.

    Designing for VR: A First Take

    Many of us have seen virtual reality in action, but few have had the opportunity to design for it. In this presentation, we will talk through our learnings on designing for Virtual Reality. Topics include uses for VR, key design considerations, rapid prototyping for VR, interesting user research findings and some tips on offline collaboration between teams

    Speaker:

    Theo Thompson is a Sr. UX Designer working with SapientRazorfish_. He has helped design for the web, mobile apps, VR & AR, and wearables.

    "I believe it is our role as UX Designers to help share a more approachable and beneficial future through technology. As a young designer, I know there is an endless sea of things to learn and try. I'm just excited to share a few findings along the way!"
