DevJam mobile development is done by product delivery teams. Wherever possible, they try to blur the lines between programmer and designer, asking people to step across boundaries and experiment with skills and tools that help build better user experiences and better products. That requires using a variety of tools and techniques to prototype and validate designs.

Matt Bjornson and David Hussman from DevJam will talk about how they quickly prototype and validate product ideas with varying levels of fidelity. For example, small customer journeys act as tools to produce just enough context to measure and reframe insights around people, product and context. They will walk through several examples of how DevJam has adjusted to meet the changing design needs of mobile technology. They’ll also share how they focus on validated learning metrics via testing with real users and the real world. Many of the examples in the mobile space will focus on transcending devices and formats.

The session will be part presentation and part fishbowl conversation which is a forum for the UXPA community to dialog about experiences and challenges associated with UX tools for the mobile world.

- Meet and greet, with refreshments: 6:30 - 7:00 PM
