What is this guide?

This guide focuses on informal, DIY, beginner user testing in a process that’s not rigorous but extremely valuable. As a short and practical guide, it helps teams get started, but shouldn’t be used to shift into a career of user research.

Who is it for?

We wrote this guide with small (2-20 active contributors or maintainers), open source teams in mind. Even if you don’t have a dedicated designer or researcher on your team, user testing can be achievable (and fun!).
