How user research can make you a better modern web developer.
If research is already part of the product development process, ask if your team’s UX researcher would allow you to sit in on a session, or even conduct one, if you dare. Otherwise, starting an inter-departmental book club could be a great way to build the skills and the knowledge needed to carry out the research during the feature development process without having to actually conduct sessions.
Having a general sense of how user research works translates into asking the right questions during the feature development process. This could be the difference between wasting three months building something in a way no one wanted and delivering a feature that actually moves the needle.
