This week: Google’s process for failure, free Tesla code for hackers, improve your prototyping skills, how to create a successful user feedback program.
Here are the things I found interesting on the web this week.
// USER FEEDBACK THINGS
How this User Researcher created “a goldmine that [gave] us access to customer feedback continuously”.
// PROTOTYPING THINGS
“By practicing these rapid prototyping exercises you can train yourself to think through solutions faster and to always validate your ideas.”
A nice overview of the difference between these two approaches and what they are good for. (I use both in my work, low-fidelity for getting buy-in to overall concepts, high-fidelity for final approvals.)
// FAILURE THINGS
“Recently, Google described its internal process for documenting and learning from mistakes, and there’s a lot here that can benefit any company.”
A few things to keep an eye out for as you are designing your brilliant new product.
// HACKING TESLA THINGS
“Tesla is now releasing some parts of its software, which is going to be useful to Tesla hackers and security researchers.” What would you do with it?
// MICROCOPY THINGS
“It’s so easy to forget the power of states, even though that’s where we really need microcopy…”
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
