Image from How to Build an AI Startup, and Do You Really Need To?

This week: a catch up on some previously saved links because life’s been so busy lately. Featuring: do you really need to launch that AI startup? The random ticket game (nerdy product development fun), why acceptance criteria will help you WIN, my love for Trello never ends.

Here are the things I found interesting on the web this week over the last few weeks.

Happy reading!

// PROTOTYPING THINGS

“Quite often product teams fall into traps that reduce the effectiveness of their prototyping efforts. Here are six of the most common pitfalls.”

// GAMES THINGS

“Pick a random in-progress “ticket” in/on your tool of choice (e.g. physical board, Jira, Clubhouse etc.)… Now, attempt to connect that ticket to a big company goal.” Nerdy, but actually really interesting fun.

// ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA THINGS

Writing Acceptance Criteria is hard! Especially for beginners. But it’s essential if you want your product to be built just how you want it to be. Here are some examples of how to do it well.

// USER RESEARCH THINGS

Doing mobile research for mobile apps is very similar to user research for, well, anything really. But “…the tools listed [here] have been shown to be particularly effective for mobile user research.”

// AI STARTUPS THINGS

“A brief summary of what AI is… [and] four general steps to go through when starting an AI business.”

// TRELLO THINGS

My love for Trello knows no bounds… “Get inspired with these Trello board templates and examples for organizing any of life’s projects.”

Compiled with ❤️ in Qatar

Every week I read stuff on the web that I think would help Qatar-based tech startups design and build brilliant products. I save up all the interesting things and publish them here, and send them out via tinyletter.com/jennyellenbrown
