    The Secret to Guerrilla Research

    Good research helps teams know who they're building for, and what those people need. It's the fast track tool to product-market fit. But most of us can't afford the cost or time of rigorous professional research, so we do fast scruffy "guerrilla research". This one secret will make any type of research as valuable as the fancy stuff.

    Steven Harley

    Steven Harley is a product designer at thoughtbot. After starting a career in front-end development, he's focused on making things on the web that people enjoy using. He's worked with companies like OkCupid and GoPro to design and build no-nonsense, user-centered products.

    Animating Interfaces

    As it becomes easier to animate interfaces on the web, we need to assess when and how to best use it in our projects. We'll go over some animation principles, stemming from Disney's Nine Old Men, and how they relate to UI design. Then, discuss how to prototype and build animations in the real world.
