What is UX Wales?

https://www.meetup.com/uxwales/events/247114688/

UX Wales was formerly known as ‘UX Bookclub’. Originally established in 2010 as a place for people with an interest in UX and UX material to get together and discuss the latest books. It has since developed into a Cardiff based meetup to discuss all things UX.

Who will be speaking?

There will be 3 speakers at this quarter's event.

Adam Babajee-Pycroft - Adam is Managing Director (UX) at Natural Interaction in Bristol. Fuelled by coffee and heavy metal he’s spent the last 12 years delivering successful User Experience projects. He’s delivered results for a range of clients from automotive giants like BMW to SAAS Startups such as Solverboard.

Megan Jevan - Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Megan now combines her love of travel and UX as a Frontend Developer at Inspiretec in Cardiff. Here she works exclusively on travel solutions and is currently working on three different projects for Canadian clients. In addition to travel and developing, she loves photography, cooking, and anything crafty. 'Moderated remote user research'

Kelly Lothbrooth-Smith - Kelly is a UX research lead with a background in psychology. Starting in forensic mental health, she moved into academia then finally found herself working with digital products and teams, which she totally loves. She has a passion for all things related to human behaviour and often gets asked "can you tell what I'm thinking?" She's a collector of Dr. Martens, reads a lot and takes too many photographs of the sky.

Sounds great! What will they be speaking about?

6:45 - 7:15 - Adam - Remote Moderated Research

In the past, Adam has always been a big advocate for remote research. Last year, he decided to change his agency’s whole approach from self moderated (where participants would follow a list of tasks we wrote in advance) to actively moderated remote research.In this talk, we’ll explore what they learned along the way, such as:

● How to convince people to let you try it in the first place

● How to write tasks for remotely moderated testing

● Finding the right participants

● Common mistakes and issues

7:15 - 7:30 - Megan Jevan - 'Introducing' (First time speaker slot)

7:30 - 8:00 - Kelly Lothbrooth-Smith - Research Methods Workshop
