We constantly stress-test our work by subjecting it to a wide variety of devices, by simulating different connection speeds, and by testing it under extreme server load scenarios. But have you ever stress-tested your work for unexamined assumptions, emotional minefields, or usability in situations of extreme distraction?

In this free 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Denver: Special Edition 2017, world-renowned author and consultant Eric Meyer uses real-world examples and interactive exercises showing how to QA your work for real life, enabling it to serve more people, more of the time.
