2014 Schedule


Todd Scheuring - UX research: building stuff for real people

March 19th - 5:30pm - University of Advancing Technology - Room# 205

Do you build stuff people will actually use? How do you know? Research comes in many shapes and sizes and should be at the heart of any UX process. From discovering new ideas to validating existing features, we’ll take a look at some of the most common UX research techniques and how to start implementing them. We’d also love to hear what kind of research you’ve been doing in your own process, so we’ll open it up to the floor to share ideas and stories afterward.



Tonia Bartz - Interaction 14 Redux

April 8th - 6-7:30pm  -  University of Phoenix Main Campus 1625 W. Fountainhead Pkwy - Rm.# 229

Regional IxDA Leader, Tonia Barz will take us through some of the highlights of IxDA Interaction 14


April 23rd - TBD



Teresa Swingler and Brenton Elmore - Storytelling UX Workshop and Ethnographic Research

May 28th - Details TBD



Noah Dryer - Agile Process

 June 18th - 5:30-7:00pm - University of Advancing Technology - Room# 205

Agile? Waterfall? Scrum? You may have heard these terms in the context of project management, but what do they really mean? What is scrum?  Why should you use it?  How can you get started? What pitfalls should you avoid? Together we'll answer all these questions and more as we demystify terms like sprint, backlog, product owner, ScrumMaster, velocity, stand-up, retrospective, and more.



Robert Neal - Applied Cog Sci Frameworks

July 16th  - Details TBD

May's Event - Redesign Phoenix

Thanks to all that attended our May event! We had a great discussion and ideation on Phoenix that evolved into some potential side projects for members of IxDA an the community to work on. I've added some photos of the event to a new Flickr group I created. The link is on our local grou page as well as at http://www.flickr.com/groups/ixdaphoenix.

To keep the momentum going on this project, we may have a one off meeting the end of this month before our next regularly scheduled meeting in July. Please let me know if you are interested in attending.

IxDA Phoenix Update

I wanted to take a moment to thank all our members for bearing with us through the transition to our new home on the web. When I began IxDA Phoenix a year ago, I knew that our previous home would only be temporary, due to exciting changes coming within the organization as a whole. They have finally started coming to life with the redesign of the IxDA global site.
