Don’t Start with Data – A Primer on UX Research

Behzod Sirjani of Slack will be joining us in Austin to present “Don’t Start with Data – A Primer on UX Research” 

In this workshop, you will learn principles of UX research and a framework for scoping projects, and then apply those principles and framework to your own research questions. You will leave with a stronger command of what good research is, how to do it, and why (or why not), as well as a project plan you can get started on. All participants are highly encouraged to come with at least one research question/area from their own work to use in the second part of the workshop.

Behzod Sirjani studies how people work and work together. As a Senior Researcher at Slack, he focuses on understanding what work looks like for Slack customers and partners with product and sales teams to make customers’ work simpler, more pleasant, and more productive. Prior to Slack, he spent 4 years at Facebook working on business tools, video products, and hardware. He has experience conducting research in both consumer and enterprise settings, in the United States and abroad.
