Abstract:
This paper describes the experiences made and lessons learned in an Extreme Programming (XP) software development project. We investigate the potential of XP to produce user experience-optimized products by including HCI experts in the team. We relate the software development method to user-centered design instruments and propose solutions to different user experience integration problems. Additionally, the practicability of different HCI instruments regarding solving those problems is examined. The analyzed instruments and methods are: user studies, personas, usability tests, user experience expert evaluations, and extended unit tests. The conclusion provides tips and tricks for practitioners.
