Susan shares her insights on how to do quick and dirty UX testing to help your application be more successful. Susan (who works with great people on the UX team, including Corrina Black, Tsitsi Gora, and Arturo Toledo) has a lot of experience working on usability and spends a lot of time working with designers and application users to help determine what makes a good user experience for products like Visual Studio, Silverlight, and Windows Phone apps. In this episode, Susan discusses the following quick and easy ways to improve UX:
  • Cognitive Walkthrough (does your work flow make sense to the user?)
  • Heuristic Evaluations (testing the UI for consistency, visual design, communication, ease, error prevention)
  • Valuable Usability Studies (choosing your audience, how many people, how to operate them)
