User Research : what it is and why everyone should do it πŸ”

🚨// Save your spot, here: https://bit.ly/2XnBssB //🚨

How many times did you participate in a project that ended up not being used by people? How many times did you see a feature being developed, but then realized it was not useful, or usable? How many friends told you about their great idea for the next startup, but they failed?

If you are growing in the tech world (or if you’re transitioning to tech), it’s most likely that you’ll participate in building digital products for people, such as apps, websites, and software,… Our world is full of them.

As humans, we are machines for ideas: we want to create things, do more, develop new solutions, grow our businesses and create projects that are meaningful to usπŸ’‘.

But we have a tendency to jump to solutions VERY quickly. And by doing this, we bring a good amount of personal bias with us.

User Research is the art of getting a pulse of your user’s needs before jumping to a solution.

πŸ“Œ It allows you to :

focus on the real problem (rather than a business need)
identifying and understanding your audience, by putting yourself in their shoes
test ideas without investing 1 cent in development
lower the risks of investing time and money in a solution that will fail
That’s why we’d like to invite you to our next free webinar: User Research: what it is and why everyone should do it!, taking place on the 25th of October at 18:00 CET. πŸ“

Ready?! πŸ™Œ

You don’t need to be an experienced researcher to start doing User Research. Any project would benefit (at least) a little User Research. In this talk, We’ll give you simple and actionable tips to start doing User Research.

We’ll share with you a couple of reusable templates on Miro and Notion, and share with you two case studies of what User Research can look like in real life.

The webinar will be led by Ironhack alumni Clemence, who will walk you through her journey of transitioning to freelance, step by step, all while sharing a wealth of tips, tricks, resources, and techniques.
