Notes on the first Agile UX NYC Conference 02.25.2012

Agile UX NYC 2012About a week and a half ago, I attended the very first (seemingly) conference held in New York City specifically addressing UX (user experience) and integrating Agile project management methods: Agile UX NYC Conference 2012.

Overall, the conference itself was extremely useful in reinforcing quite a bit of the knowledge I already have. I’m one of those people that learns as I go, picking up bits of knowledge here and there. Eventually, when it feels necessary, I’ll return to some structured methodology to understand how concepts fit together in the “traditional” way. This also helps to refresh buzzwords or other malarkey.  So, below is a round up of sorts; posts genereated from my Evernote scratchings from each of the sessions.

Sometime after lunch, my conference companion and I cut out because at a certain point, the material began feeling too familiar. A note to conference organizers next time: you can combine or cut the number of sessions and start about 1 hour later at a more godly hour than 8am registration. Really.
