This month's P2P session is open to members and non-members of the Communitech Network.


We hope that you will join us for this exciting session.  If you plan to attend, please click on the Register Now link above.

Agile/Lean and uxWaterloo P2P are pleased to team up to explore how UX works in an agile environment in a facilitated discussion forum lead by Mark Connolly (Karos Health) and Robert Barlow-Busch (ArtBarn Partners), champions of uxWaterloo P2P group. Together with Agile participants, we'll share our collective experiences and insights in wide-ranging discussion. Amongst the questions we hope to address:

  • Are there alternatives to UX designers working an iteration ahead of developers?
  • How can Agile cross-functional teams think more about user experience using tools like personas?
  • How can designers, developers and technical writers/content designers, work as an integrated team?

Please bring your answers, questions and insights to the discussion. We welcome the sharing of all experiences!

After the session, please feel free to hang out and network with P2P participants.

Please note: The start time of this sesion is 5:30 p.m and doors will open at 5:00 p.m. Also note the location is the Accelerator Centre.
