"Pairing with Designers from Cooper Design, DevJam has been actively fusing product thinking and agile delivery. While this is not the first DevJam UX rodeo, the work has taken me deeper into the world of the people referred to as “creatives”. In some cases, the integration is emergent and smooth. In other cases, most cases, integration is constrained. Some constraints are low hanging fruit (e.g. tools and process) while others are stronger and run deep within the culture of the organization. If you are looking to hear the good, the bad, and the immensely difficult, show up ready to listen, question, and share your stories. We learn best as a group; I just happen to be the first story teller for the evening." - David Hussman
If you are a UX person who is interested in agile, or an agile person interested in UX, or you just want to better understand how to get stuff done, this will be a great session. Everyone is welcome!
