Lean UX Workshop

Lean UX Workshop

Aligning Business, Design, and Technology

Clarke's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 5.0

I've spent a good part of today watching Jeff Gothelf's Lean UX Workshop - a paid video workshop from O'Reilly, which I didn't pay for because I'm part of the O'Reilly reviewer program. What follows is my brief, but honest, review: It's very good. Gothelf is a very good presenter - easy to listen to, easy to follow - and the content is excellent. I've had the good fortune to work with 3 excellent UX folk during the last year so I am familiar with some of the content, but not all of it. I learnt useful stuff though and I found it a useful complement to the book he cowrote with Josh Seiden. The workshop is broken down into 11 videos, some just a few minutes long, a few nearer 45 minutes long, totalling just over 4 hours. It starts with a very nice overview of Agile and an explanation of how Lean UX fits UX work into an Agile framework. It also covers, clearly and quickly, Lean Startup thinking. I really enjoyed this. The videos cost about $70, plus 4 hours of your time. Full Review >

One of the best investments I've made since owning macs, is David Pogue's OS X Mavericks: The Missing Manual. Pogue knows what he's talking about AND he writes about technical stuff in a way that's easy to absorb. I also read his Switching to the Mac book, way back, and I recommend it to anyone who is switching from Windows to Mac. Full Review >

I found it hard, when I first tried reading this book, to warm to it. The essay style didn't work for me. Perhaps I wasn't in the right frame of mind. Perhaps the thought of reading a whole bunch of essays didn't appeal. Who knows? Full Review >
