Although the address of WeWork is on Hancock St, that's the back entrance, which is kept locked. The front entrance is inside the Piazza.

I am pretty sure that it will not be recorded.  I will ask about the slides, though.

 

But not to worry.  For the October 10th Annual AgilePhilly Half Day Conference that is growing into the October 10th AgilePhilly Almost-Full-Day Conference, we will be having a UX track with 3 ( count 'em 3 ) one-hour presentations.

 

So reserve the date October 10th on your calendar = all day.

I have a conflict for 06-08.  Will there be a recording/slides available?

From     https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/agile-testing/conversations/top...

"I believe both QA and UX have something very common to become better at what they do which is empathy for user. It enables a UX person come up with better design solution. For a QA person it opens up a realm of use case scenarios that can be tested. In your organization have UX and QA worked together in symphony? If so how was your experience? "
