Workshop / Open Space “User Experience & Agile Software Development"

«You have to prototype everything in advance.» «UX has to be one sprint ahead of development.» «UX has to be embedded and integrated into the development cycle.» «You have to run user tests with real users in every sprint.»

Have you already heard these or similar statements? Are you working in the field of development and user experience or do you plan to do so? Do you want to optimize the cooperation between agile development and UX? Are you already an expert in this matter or do you want to learn more about it? Then we invite you to join our open space workshop.

This workshop is organized by the UX Expert Group of swissICT. We already organized the same event in Zurich and Bern with great success and look forward to repeating this experience in the Romandie.

Who should attend ? Usability and User Experience Specialists, Software Developers und Project Managers

Program Have you ever experienced events, where the discussions with other participants were better than the talks? As many of us have made this experience, we choose a format with more discussion and less talks: The aim of this event is to share valuable insights and best practices between practitioners, to discuss each other’s challenges and questions and to generate new inspiration and professional contacts.

The event will be held in English.

17:45 Opening 18:00 Introduction 18:15 Discussions 19:15 Summary and Wrap up 19:30 Closing and Apéro

After the workshop, we will have a little apéro at Liip. Later we will go for dinner somewhere. You are free to join us.
