Agile UX 2012 is is a single day, single track conference, all about designing great user experiences within the structure of an Agile development process.

This is the first dedicated Agile UX conference in Australia – the topic has been included within some other conferences, but this is the first to focus on it exclusively.

The program

The conference program will cover a wide range of topics needed to successfully deliver a great user experience.

It’s a community conference

The conference will be focused on the Australian UX community, and will include presentations by local speakers and opportunities to share experiences with each other.

What is Agile UX?

Although the terminology of ‘Agile UX’ sounds like how to do user experience design faster, that’s not what this conference is about.

This conference will focus on how to deliver great user experiences within the structure of an agile development process.

We have seen presentations about UX and Agile at other conferences. We’ve noticed these most often discuss how to fit user research into an Agile process, or how to communicate well within an Agile team.

We think there’s much more to discuss than just user research and communication. That’s what we’re going to explore during this conference. We hope to cover a range of topics relating to user experience design and Agile. We’re not entirely sure what they are yet, but they’ll come to light as we develop the program.

Who is it for

If you are in a role where you’re working within an Agile development structure, and somehow responsible for design decisions that affect the user experience, this conference is for you. You might be called one of the following, or manage them:

  • User experience designer
  • Product manager
  • Project manager

This conference is for developers too! It won’t cover detailed aspects of Agile development, but it will cover many user experience issues that developers have to deal with (even more so for designer/developers). And we’ll definitely have developers on the speaker line-up.

Who’s responsible

Agile UX 2012 is proudly run by the team at UX Events.
