Suzanne Hillman (Outreachy): Working on the portfolio

I’ve been working on making a portfolio of what I did for the Fedora Regional Hubs project. Did you know I did a _lot_ of stuff?

I mean, I was definitely busy getting things done throughout. I knew this. Summarizing what I did in a way that someone else can follow is surprisingly complicated. There’s a lot of information scattered around my email, pagure tickets, throughout this blog, and on my latop.

I’m really glad that I was blogging the whole time, because it makes it a lot easier to reconstruct what I did. But boy. This is very time-consuming!

I am glad that I decided to try starting with a presentation outline: while the presentation isn’t done, it’s started, and it helped give me focus for the summarizing I have been doing.

I’m also glad that I am able to ask Alex Feinman for feedback, as it has been very helpful to be able to talk to him about it. And that I could ask a million questions of Mo both during and after the internship.

Even just the high level outline I wrote last night in a fit of comprehension looks like a lot:

Preliminary research

  • Competitors
  • Fedora Hubs
  • Contextual interviews

Analysis

  • Processing raw data (transcribe, summarize, top 5 pains, problems, workflows)
  • Brainstorming with others (whiteboards, notes on brainstorming session, sketches to start with)
  • Questions
  • Affinity mapping
  • Prioritization
  • Deep dive/brainstorm on top questions (don’t forget survey!)

Design

  • General sketches & wireframes & tickets (invitation page, login, etc) — after general brainstorming session
  • Specific sketches & initial wireframes & tickets (search/filter pages for people, events, Hubs. Notifications/widgets)
  • Find holes, enter tickets.
  • Additional discussion as needed/follow-ups in weekly meetings/blog posts

Feedback and iteration

  • Feedback from Mo on wireframes, discuss, adjust
  • Feedback from sayan on feasibility
  • Locations!
  • From participants?

Usability Sessions

  • Prepare for usability sessions.
  • Prototypes need connections among themselves.
  • Identify tasks
  • Prioritize tasks
  • Identify and contact participants (who, why?)
  • Usability script
  • Usability sessions

Analyze feedback

  • Transcription, summary, highlight important
  • Spreadsheet!
  • Discuss with Mo
