Seven Slides and a Fight: How Extreme Programming improved our user-centered design process, but not our social skills (04 Oct 2002)
The subject of this talk is the recent experiences of a small team of engineers and fieldworkers at PARC of moving from a more conventional style of user-centered iterative design and prototyping to extreme programming (XP) as a means to integrate ethnographic fieldwork and feedback from using prototypes with engineering and design. We specifically focus on the different perspectives we all have, as user or customer representatives, designers and engineers, of the pro's and con's of XP for user-centered design. Normally this causes a fight about a lot of contentious issues that we have encountered, which we will be happy to share with you.
