Announcing UX Talk Tokyo #12 – “Lean UX in Practice” & “Succeeding at Page speed”

Many of Tokyo’s regular events take a break during August. It’s understandable … it’s hot, people like to take it easy.

Not UX Talk Tokyo. If there’s UX to be talked about, we’ll talk about it. This month we have two interesting presentations lined up …

1) “Lean UX in Practice”
Mark McFarlane (of Tacchi studios) will talk about real-life experiences of using lean UX methods on an app design and build project.

2) “Succeeding at Page speed”
Chris Kirkland (of Artweb & Tokyo Cheapo) will share his experiences optimising page load speed, and the measurable effect it has on conversation rates and bounce rates.
