Yesterday, by popular demand, we hosted a session in ourSlack channel on the subject of usability testing. Our UXpert was Cindy McCracken and she did a fantastic job.
As well as answering questions and handing out valuable advice, Cindy compiled this handy list of resources:

If you didn’t make the session because you didn’t know about it, make sure youjoin our community to get updates of upcoming sessions. If you have follow up questions for Cindy, you can ask them over on ourcommunity forums.
