New from the Decal blog today there's a general post about testing, not writing tests for your code but testing methods for your site as a whole (like A/B testing). This is the first part of a series.

For a long time, we here at Working Software have been strong believers in the "content precedes design" philosophy, as famously espoused by Jeffrey Zeldman and summarised here on UX Myths. [...] We are relaunching this website so we'd gone through the process of creating our "content first" wireframe using Decal Mockups.

They go through their entire process - how they decided what to test on the site, the methods they chose for the testing (including PickFu and Feedback Army) and some of the results of the feedback from each.
