Keynote : You're NOT doing usability testing? Are you… nuts?

With Steve Krug

Anyone who’s tried doing it can tell you that usability testing is the best way--by far--to ensure that what you build (whether it's a web site, a mobile app, desktop software, a CMS, or anything else) is as good as it can be. But most people still think that usability testing is complicated, costly, and time consuming.

That can be true if you hire someone to do it for you. But Steve Krug will show you that you can--and should--be doing it yourself, and that DIY testing is simple, inexpensive, fast, and most of all, effective.

Based on the method he described in his second book, Rocket Surgery Made Easy, Steve's presentation will include a live usability test so you can see just how simple it can be.

Keynote : Revolutionising Capabilities in Civic Technology

With Frances Berriman

Technology in governments has become a hot topic over the last couple of years, with some landmark projects moving the needle on what it looks like to create successful, useful, digital services for real people. Frances will talk about some of these projects, what it took to make them happen, and how civic-minded technologists and designers like you can use your skills for good.

Frances Berriman is a British developer who relocated from London to San Francisco in the summer of 2013, joining Code for America in January 2014. She previously worked as the front-end lead for GOV.UK, the UK Government Digital Service's award-winning flagship project that formed a key part of the digital strategy overhaul of services for citizens in the UK. She brings her expertise in this field to the tech team and as an advisor to the various CfA program participants.
