DDD North - The Forgotten Users Of A Website

You’ve come up with an idea for a website or app. Validated the idea, done your user research and defined the functionality required.

In this talk we explore users and stakeholders who may have been missed when writing the requirements and also how to include them in the design and build process.

DUUGFest 2022 - The Forgotten Users Of A CMS

When defining the functionality of websites and applications we often write user stories and user journeys. But we often fail to capture "assumed" requirements like developer, security and content editor's needs.

In this talk we explore users and stakeholders who may have been missed from the requirements due to assumptions. And how we can use user stories to help build more robust, secure, and maintainable websites and applications, that support all users of a CMS.

If you want to watch this talk it is available here.
