2019 FALL UNO MISSO Meeting

The Management Information Systems Student Organization (MISSO) is a student group at University of Nebraska-Omaha. MISSO has a general meeting once a month, usually featuring a guest speaker. This past Friday September 13th. Myself and Joni Stewart  were the guest speakers at the September meeting. I also wanted this spot because of talking about Internships and Technology Works here event.

I had set up this visit in early August by emailing the Professor Dr. Paul Van Vliet.



The MISSO group does a good job of advertising the meeting.  About a month before the meeting I was asked for a topic. The topic I wanted to talk about was UX in my development process. Here is the abstract:

This month our guest speaker will be Anthony Carlson, a UNO graduate and lead application developer with Farm Credit Services of America. His software journey has been through various forms of service-oriented architecture for client and web applications. As a member of the first team at Farm Credit Services to use an agile methodology for software development, Anthony helped champion practices such as test-driven development and service-level testing. Currently, he is part of the Customer Solutions team where his focus is on iOS, Android, and responsive platforms.

Anthony’s talk is entitled

“How do I include UX in my development process?” How do we know if our software efforts are on the right track? Finding the answers to these questions doesn’t need to be scary, your users want to tell you everything you need to know to be successful. Anthony Carlson Lead Application Developer will explain how to build simple UX practices into any software development processes. Learn real world examples on how to effectively engage your customers and development team with UX basics, when to apply them and how to plan for them.

They take my topic and make a nice graphic to be shared on social media.
