Helped to update or move some 40 Drupal security team issues along as a security team coordinator. Hopefully we will see some issues come through the security process in the next few weeks.
Lisa Rex and Dharmesh Mistry from Acquia co-organized Drupal's very first UI/ UX Summit at BADCamp. The other co-organizers were Jen Lampton, Garen Checkley and Rebecca Gessler. This one-day summit focused on workshops educating the attendees on various aspects of user experience. Besides the workshops, we conducted a LIVE usability study on Views with 8 participants.
Dharmesh Mistry and Lisa Rex were heavily involved with Views UI (7.x-3.5) usability studies at the BADCamp UX/UI Summit, from writing the test script, scheduling participants, and moderating all 8 studies.
The end result is we have uncovered several major and moderate usability problems which are already being worked on by the View in Drupal Core team. A full write up our findings can be found on Drupal.org, Report from BADCamp 2012 Views Usability Testing.
