The mission of the UX Program is to support and facilitate cross-project efforts to improve the overall user experience of OpenStack.  
 
The mission of the UX Program is to support and facilitate cross-project efforts to improve the overall user experience of OpenStack.  
We provide user research to help teams identify any issues preventing adoption of their services as well as help the projects validate design and development efforts to address those issues. In addition, we help the project teams create solutions to address customer needs and pain points. Finally, we will provide the OpenStack community with visibility into any user experience issues related to inconsistency across projects.

The team current uses an online tool called [https://openstack.invisionapp.com/ Invision] to provided feedback on mocks.  The best way to get an account is to post a request to the Horizon IRC and someone with admin privileges will grant you access to post your designs.

Generally, you would want to create a project in [https://openstack.invisionapp.com/ Invision] and upload images to that project. The next step would be to post a link to that design in the Horizon IRC asking folks to provide reviews.  The community has been very good about providing reasonable feedback and it's your choice whether or not to incorporate the recommendations.

OpenStack Project UX Horizontal.jpg






NOTE: This page is no longer maintained. If you are interested in UX design and improvements, we would love for you to revive this group! Please send an email to the openstack-discuss mailing list to get started!



Overview of research activities on behalf of the OpenStack community

If nothing else, then review this deck

OpenStack User Experience Mission

The mission of the UX Program is to support and facilitate cross-project efforts to improve the overall user experience of OpenStack. We provide user research to help teams identify any issues preventing adoption of their services as well as help the projects validate design and development efforts to address those issues. In addition, we help the project teams create solutions to address customer needs and pain points. Finally, we will provide the OpenStack community with visibility into any user experience issues related to inconsistency across projects.
