They didn’t expect it to be so popular https://www.fastcompany.com/90372204/a-hospital-introduced-a-robot-to-help-nurses-they-didnt-expect-it-to-be-so-popular It Came From Reddit Posted byu/bigfatbeard Seeking resources and insights on conducting a UAT (User Acceptance Testing). Hi everyone, I am conducting my first UAT in a couple of months and would to hear from those who have been a part of a UAT or conducted a UAT. I have found a couple of resources, but they are focused on the definition of UAT and the process. I am looking for insights, materials, tips, dos, and don'ts. I've moderated User Testing sessions in the past, but I feel this (UAT) may be a bit more involved. Posted byu/theUnknown I feel like I'm not learning enough at my internship. I'm a final year design student. I'm currently working at a design firm and it's one of the best in the country. But I haven't learnt a lot. I was supposed to work on a design project but I was assigned a research project that was more experimental and vague than I'd hoped for. My learning has been quite meagre and I'm disappointed because I turned down offers from one of the top 3 companies in the world and one of the fastest growing startups - they both paid a lot more and the name would've been a huge plus. I chose this because one of my design idols is a client here and this firm is moving very quickly. But over the last 2 months, I've effectively learnt nothing. I've realised that one. I'm quite poor and I do have to continue working. So, I now have 3 options ahead of me - stay at this firm and switch to a design project. I'll work on it for 6 weeks. I could switch to the project that includes my design idol or work on a new project with 2 good designers. switch to the start up that's doing really well. they offer more money and I know they tend to expect a lot of hands on work stop everything, resume my education at university (which sucks) and freelance In the future, I'd like to work at a small start-up and make a great product and build a great team. I know these sound like lofty goals but I do believe that I can do it. What will help me get there?
