The agile manifest from 2001 does not mention spec nor UX or usability. The original hard core practice of agile ignore design issues and design practices. It dreams that one can design a complete sprint in one day of planning game and maybe additional “spec support on demand” i.e. during the sprint. It seems that it leaves, practically a lot of the design work to the developers.
Today, in the UX era, it is clear that this does not work. Everybody knows and admit that UX is needed in the process. In this Meetup we will talk about the way designer can take part of the agile process without forcing the design part of the process to work in a waterfall like methods.
