A summary of your results. You may keep this very short. “We had a very intense discussion on xyz” can be your full documentation. You don’t need results, in some cases the discussion is all you need.

Dani von bongfish & Johanna von TU Graz
Johanna:
Good Game Experience: important is the WOW-Moment (strong emotions)
UX in Games is relevant, because users can easily switch to another game (compared to software that users must use)
Usability Heuristics for Video Game Design -> by Pinelle, D. (2008) – Details in the slides
Concept testing: ask user after test: how would you describe the game concept in 1 sentence? (compare it to the 1 sentence you have prepared)
Flow experience should be kept constant, if challenge is to high -> anxiety, if to low -> boredom
Dani: 
    Präsentation des Spiels Summer Olymics 2016
    Wireframe-Entwicklung & Prototypen
    
    Live UX Testing des Prototypen

5) Session Template “UX in der Industrie”
Session owner
Andrei
Results
User Experience im Backaging: Apple vs. Samsung vs. andere Marken
UX Wireframes: immer auf Papier als erstes
6) User Testing – Erfahrungen, Best Practices & Co
Session owner
Christian ‘Wörki’ 
– Yandex “Metrica” – spannend zur Analyse von Abbrüchen (weist aber Datenschutz-Probleme aus)
Probleme der Anwesenden:
Usability wird noch immer nicht als Mehrwert erkannt und es ist  kein Budget in Projekten dafür vorhanden ist, obwohl es ein Abgrenzungsmerkmal zur Konkurrenz ist
Außerdem setzten sich oft Geschäftsleitung/PDMs durch, weil sie glauben, dass sie es besser wissen als die Usability Experten 
Empfehlung: jemanden im Entwicklungsteam finden, der sich für UX begeistert. Idealerweise ins (Scrum-) Team als festes Teammitglied einbinden. 
Darüberhinaus muss das ganze Team und die Vorgesetzten den Usability Gedanken verinnerlicht haben
