Funny, brilliant and short article on how to user test your website at a bar. Frankly, I’m all for it (particularly since my biggest obstacle to user testing is interacting with strangers).
- Bring a laptop to a bar
- Offer to buy someone a beer in exchange for participating in a user study
- Watch your application crash & burn as people do all sorts of ridiculous ass shit they would never do in a lab but constantly do in real life
- Go back, apply the lessons you have learnt, repeat until you have an app that is 100% drunk person proof
