Are you only testing your design in production?
Bad design causes panic and misery, and in some cases, it’s literally lethal. A lot of software is only tested in production, leading to overwhelming amount of support calls and unhappy peers.
Do you wish that people would give you design feedback before you hit the deploy button?
In this talk I’ll show you how you can anticipate design issues using simple user testing methods. These methods will streamline your development process as well as increase the impact that your project has on your community through more intentional design.
I’ll be sharing my experience user testing Cockpit, a server management web console for Linux boxes, and how it has improved the experience we deliver to our customers.

Web Accessibility?
The internet is arguably the most powerful resource known to mankind. Of course, it isn’t perfect, but we can fix many of its flaws, like lack of accessibility. Not everyone can take full advantage of the internet, and that’s a problem. Sadly, not all websites are optimized for the kinds of visitors who has weak vision or who are blind or who are physically disabled. We all need to speak up for accessibility and start taking action.
At this talk we will see how small and simple improvements to your website can significantly make it more accessible, so as make it more effective.

Engineering Intuitive Experiences
Are you coding and designing products with the user in mind? Everyone likes applications that are easy to understand and intuitive to use. Providing the right experience to the user at the right moment can be a challenge. Learn methods for empathizing with users and how you can fold these strategies into your process.

There are different methods for gathering user feedback such as interviews, focus groups, card sorts, walk throughs, A/B tests, etc. The particular project, use case, timeline, or resources available can impact which method should be used. In this session, we’ll cover how to use the right method at the right moment to provide user feedback that improves your products. These methods are not solely for designers, engineers are directly shaping the usability of the product!

Usability of Open Source Software
Test the usability of any Open Source software in just a few steps with minimal resources to get useful feedback for designers, therefore usable interfaces for users. We will go through the process of testing step by step, using examples from tests conducted for various open source projects like GNOME, Thunderbird, I2P, Briar.
We will discuss:
* The right way to test usability
* Choosing personas
* Deciding which tools to use
* Analysing the results
Most importantly, learn how to effectively share the results and make recommendations to have an impact on the development decision-making process.
