Talking Lean at the Edinburgh UX Meetup

Last week I had the pleasure of presenting a short session on Lean UX at the Edinburgh User Experience meet up. If you’re local, I recommend joining in as it’s a great way to connect with a wide range of people working in the area.

About the UX Meet up group

The group has been running for a few years now. It’s an informal get together for people working in, or just interested in, user experience and related fields like service design.

They meet regularly on the first Monday of each month in a pub in Edinburgh’s West End, not far from Haymarket Station.

I’ve found it’s a diverse crowd; students and people interested in learning more about UX through to super-experienced professionals working in consultancies and big organisations. Most importantly, the group is relaxed, friendly and welcoming.

My talk about Lean UX

More recently the organisers have been putting on a (roughly quarterly) session which brings in speakers as well as the usual networking opportunity.

I was asked to contribute something so decided to pull something together about Lean UX because it’s something I’m really enthusiastic about practicing here at the University but also because (probably more importantly!) I had previous slide decks I could draw on to produce something quickly.

And here’s the deck I presented on the night…

Challenging assumptions with Lean UX – Edinburgh UX meetup from Neil Allison

Join the community

I recommend anyone within the University who is working in user research and experience design to tap into this network. They’re a friendly and relaxed group, and if you come along to the presentation sessions it’s a great learning opportunity.

And if you’re thinking of going, share it with our University UX mailing list so that colleagues have the chance to come along and keep you company.
