On Monday night I had the pleasure of presenting at the July Melbourne Geek night. It is a great event put on by the team at Thirst Studios which covers a bunch of tech topics. This month featured 3 presentations on UX.

There was a great presentation by Matt Magain of UX Mastery fame, on how to create a great sketch video. It included a very powerful video on cancer which is worth checking out.

Ben Tollady and Ben Rowe  from Thirst Studios gave a great presentation on delight. They explored what delight is and provided some great examples.

My presentation covered the importance of UX research as part of the design process. It included 5 myths about conducting UX research in agile and tips on successful UX research. See the slides below.  I plan to follow this up with a blog post on the topic.
