Every day, more and more tech- and startup-focused learning opportunities seem to be appearing in Hawaii. This week has a host of events leading up to Honolulu Startup Weekend, next week is a course on building mobile apps with Corona, a series of dynamic language meetups begins in May, and now, Startup Hawaii has announced a two-day workshop covering lean user experience concepts. Registration just opened yesterday at this link.
To be delivered on June 2nd and 3rd by LUXr.co of San Francisco, Lean UX is a principle-driven approach for designing startup products. At this workshop, teams will learn to collaborate better, make faster decisions, and act decisively and with more confidence.
This workshop is aimed at all technical and non-technical product and design teams, whether software, apps, or hard goods, and will dive deeply into four topics:
- Lean UX Fundamentals
- Customer Development Interviews & Generative Research
- Developing Product and Interface Ideas
- Quantitative and Qualitative Evaluation
No prerequisites are required.
How does Lean UX work? Well, the main concept is to reduce long product cycles into smaller, shorter chunks, and then validate those iterations with people that will use your products. This process helps to speed development cycles while reducing costs, rework, and misguided efforts. It’s similar to the agile software development process, but applied to the user’s perspective. In the past decade, agile transformed software development, and those concepts are now being put to use by product teams.
