Also disappointed I missed this, but would be happy to help with the arrangements for any subsequent sessions or other UX gatherings in Cambridgeshire.

The Cambridge Usability Group is currently planning some more events, so there will be a revival soon! An event is currently being planned for April and some promotion will go out fairly soon. Francis - would be good to know what you are planning with the UPA. I'll be in touch.

Good to hear that UPA in Cambridge may not be dead, you can message me on here, via linked in or via

Hi John,


Funny you should mention that... I am in the process of reviving UPA activity hereabouts! Maybe get in touch directly, or via LinkedIn?

Thanks to all involved with putting this on, very enjoyable and picked up a few useful tips during the evening.


Now that the UPA meetings don't take place in Cambridge, it's good to make contact with others from the UX community

Hi there,


Thanks again to the speakers and to Mark for arranging the event.

If anyone is dying to read more notes from the talks, mine are now available.


Look forward to seeing fellow UXers again soon!

You can also view the Remote user testing 101 slides online, or alternatively download the slides as a PDF (2.3 MB).

Rob and I appologise once again for the slides being cut off during the presentation - some of those ever present technology gremlins I'm afraid.

Thanks Michele and Mark. I really enjoyed the event even though I was co-ordinating it all. I started my career with a strong UX interest but gradually got more involved in other areas over time but it's nice to see what the state of the art is.


Don - we're planning a UX conference in Cambridge, please keep an eye out here for more details. The Agile Cambridge conference in September will also be looking for Agile/UX practitioners to share their experiences if that's your bag. A Call for Speakers will be available next month.
