Session Objective
Very often in software development, the team implementing the solutions to end user problems do not get an opportunity to actually talk to and hear what those end users have to say about that functionality. The goal of these sessions is to provide the team of engineers who work on modularity an opportunity to hear feedback from their end users on how that functionality is being thought about and implemented.

The objective is to have short interactive feedback sessions to provide attendees with insight into the modularity work and to provide the modularity team with feedback directly from the intended end users of their work.

Participants in these sessions should leave with a better understanding of how modularity can help them in their jobs as well as give them a better feeling of being included in the path forward.

The feedback participants provide will help direct next steps for the modularity team and validate decisions made to date.

Each session will be run as a 30 minute focus group. By leveraging this method, the modularity team can maximize the number of participants. Ideally, there would be one session each day of the conference for a total of 4.

Session Structure
At the beginning of each session the moderator will provide an overview of what to expect. This will include information regarding the goals of the session and the structure that feedback is expected to be provided within. Next, a short demo of the modularity PoC will be shown by one of the modularity team members. This demo will be narrated.

After the complete run through of the demo, participants will be shown certain scenarios in the demo a second time and asked some specific questions related to what they saw, how it works and what their thoughts are regarding the functionality and the flow. The moderator of the session will take notes and along with the modularity team member ask follow up questions and clarifying questions as needed.
To ensure the feedback is provided by intended end users, some basic demographic information will be collected on all attendees. Providing this information will be voluntary, but will be helpful to the modularity team for understanding the background, experience and role of those that have participated.

These basic demographics will include, name, role, and email if they agree to be contacted for follow-up.

In summary, these sessions will provide an opportunity for a more interactive conversation between the modularity team and their intended end users. There will be opportunity to delve deeper into functionality, user goals and overall user experience than has been able to happen through other means of communication.
