Meet Up – User Research Basics, How to Get to Know Your Users

October 26 | 10:30 | 90 Minutes | Deschutes Brewery Tap Room

Gaining an understanding of who your users are and what concerns them is critical when designing successfully for them. Part of this is getting outside of the conference room and digging into user research.

In this meetup, we will go over stages of user research, starting with data you can gather and ending with interacting with those users in systematic ways. We will pause at each step to have break out work sessions for you to discuss how to best approach that step in your own projects, giving you a game plan for user testing by the end.
