UX Lifecycle: 3 Phases To Improve The UX Process In Your Project

As I was looking for job after I graduated from the University, I stumbled upon this e-book on Kindle Unlimited titled UX Lifecycle: The business guide to implementing great software user experiences (English Edition) 

Like most of e-book in Kindle Unlimited, this book contains less than 200 pages so I could finish it pretty quickly. And sure I was satisfied with the content of this book.

This book exposes the necessary information regarding the world of UX to the reader who wants to dive in deeper in this theme. But this book is also for me who already know one or two things about the UX but still want to sharpen the knowledge.

In this post I would discuss the lifecycle that is discussed in this book which covers three phases: discover, build and measure.

Persona Development for Small Scale Project

A user group that uses a system (web, mobile, or holographic app) is represented by persona. The representation must be reliable and realistic enough to the real-life situation as this persona shows us the majority of our users is. In a small scale project, persona development is often skipped due to limited budget and time. But to unsure the user experience of the system, it is recommended to at least have a couple of persona before starting to develop the system.

One Ultimate Solution When Your Sony Vegas Decided To Ruin Your Day With Its Rendering Problem

One sunny morning I sat on my desk at my beautiful office in Stuttgart, Germany while staring at the monitor screen hoping the render progress bar of Sony Vegas would move. But it didn’t. I smashed the table and got fired.


Monkey as Me at Work

Just kidding. I just constantly force closed Sony Vegas with Windows Task Manager. It took me hours before I completely rendered one video, well… I didn’t just sit and stare the screen. I decided to change the format, size, framerate, everything. In the end I ended up with a 5GB file, AVI extension, and a less than 2 minutes video. What the heck!

Then I called one of my co-workers to show her the video I just rendered, and it stucked. It just showed one frame per 5 minutes. I swear to God I wanted to jump from the building. I started swearing at my laptop but I know it’s not really his fault. So I just showed my co-worker the video I just made directly in Sony Vegas.

She gave me feedback to change this and that. Noted. I made the change and still tried to render the video with the lowest size possible and the best quality possible. I clicked render. 5%, 30%, 60%, 75%. And Sony Vegas decided to stop to see me flip the table.

It never happened before, so I thought there’s a problem with one of the materials that I used for the video, either it’s the PNG files, the screencast video, I didn’t know.

Until I decided to do a lil change in the preferences.

Test
Go to Option, Preferences, Video, and then change any value of Dynamic RAM Preview max to 0

And then I tried to render my video once again. 1%, 5%, 10%, It took forever, until, 99%, 100%. And that’s how I won the day today. You might see me fall in the morning, Vegas, but you should expect to see me to rise like a phoenix!
