Under the knife: plastic surgery for classic software

Vashon 1 and 2

How can you tackle the process of updating a mature interface? In this presentation, I will discuss our team’s approach to quickly transform the look and feel of GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar and GoToTraining for Mac over a period of four months. Learn how we kept our project on track by saying no to all but the most essential improvements, and how we incorporated design feedback without falling prey to out-of-scope requirements. I'll explain my design process and how I supported the team in my role as scrum master. You will see visual design changes that were tried and discarded, and most importantly, what impact the visual changes had on our user community. This talk will cover what can realistically be done in a short period of time to improve your interface without overcommitting, and where to go after the first release.
