o, I’ve just come back home from the most recent UX Book Blub Berlin, where we discussed Doorbells, Danger, and Dead Batteries” by Steve Portigal. I got a lot out of the evening, and agreed to share a few links to thing we discussed, but meetup.com doesn’t let you share comments over a certain length, so I’m posting it here instead.
The first is the online ResearchOps Community (well, slack channel mainly), that Kat, Anja and I are in – it’s online, at:
Kat and I are also organising a workshop on June 22nd, which you can learn more about at the link below:
Here’s the link to where you can sign up
Field Study Handbook
I think it was Franco who also mentioned the field study handbook – a colossal tome that’s considered the final word in immersive research.
It’s what I’d read up on if I ended up doing more of this kind of research. It also carries a formidable price tag of one hundred and twenty five bucks.

Testessen and speed dating for testing products
I think it was Steve who mentioned Test Essen, a sort of speed dating / user testing event to get quick feedback on products and prototypes. I hadn’t heard of it before. See more below:
OMGDPR and research
Finally, I briefly mentioned an unconference called OMGDPR that took place few weeks back.
If there’s interest, I’d be up for organising a small event to chat to other researchers, to get a better idea of how it’s affecting their processes, as:
- the law is new
- it’s effects are far reaching
- there are all kinds of question I have about how it affects how we do research, and I figure it might be useful exploring them with others
Anyway, catch y’all at the next Book club!
