Over the last few years it seems that the various flavors of agile have taken a greater foothold as the development process de jour. And in many cases for good reason.

As an interaction designer Kevin Silver has been asked more and more on how to integrate this role into the agile process: How does the upfront design work fit in? If it does at all?

In this presentation Kevin will answer these questions. Also, based on his discussions with various companies, he will suggest how design can help overcome a few perceived deficiencies with agile so you can stay on schedule and on budget.

Presentation to be followed by socializing at Uptown for those folks who want to stick around.
