Drupal.org redesign – Participate in Usability Testing in London!

You’re going to be hearing more and more about usability testing in the coming weeks! As you know, we’ve been including Drupal.org users in the redesign process from before the first wireframe was sketched, and we continue to include both ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders’ in the process – currently in the form of usability testing the prototypes as it moves from iteration to iteration.

We recently conducted some tests at the Web 2.0 Expo in Berlin which allowed us to talk to a bunch of European Drupal Users (and non-users too!). Now we’d like to do some usability testing in London (where I’m based).

If you’re in London on Monday 3 November and would like to participate – please email me [email protected] and let me know where you will be (I can meet you somewhere convenient) and when would suit you. I’ll need around 30-40mins of your time.

I’m looking for a mix of people who know a *lot* about Drupal (and are involved in the community) through to people who know not much about Drupal but who have some interest in content management systems for websites – whether for your own blog perhaps, or for a company or organisation you’re affiliated with.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any cash incentives for this project, but you will receive much gratitude and lots of good karma for helping build good user experience into an open source project.

I hope to hear from you soon!

    have you tried posting this to the UK Drupal group [http://groups.drupal.org/united-kingdom].

    This would be a good way to make contact with some expert users in London.

    Leisa –

    I wish I was in London and not in Indiana right now.

    Any chance you will do usability testing in the US Midwest?

    I’m close to Chicago!
