The UX Showcase is a recurring meeting that allows each stage group to walk through various research findings and design solutions. All showcases are recorded and made available on GitLab Unfiltered for Product, UX, Engineering, and Leadership to watch at their convenience.
UX Showcases are scheduled every two weeks. They are 60 minutes long to allow up to three team members to share for 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes of discussion time from the UX Department.
If a Product Designer can't present on the assigned date, it's their responsibility to make a trade. To make a trade:

You have up to 15 minutes to share some of your work. If you need more time to present a complex topic, ask the host about having less people present at that showcase.
You should come prepared with sufficient artifacts to tell a story. Use your best judgment to determine what will most effectively convey the story: a few slides, a process diagram, a journey map, a series of mockups, a prototype, and so on.
Preparation for a UX Showcase should be minimal. Ideally, you should present your topic without creating dedicated slides or assets. The UX Showcase is all about sharing your work in progress, not fancy storytelling. See more helpful tips
Examples of minimal UX Showcase presentations:
Preparation time should be minimal, as you'll present the work you've done thus far.

Product Design Managers take turns hosting the UX Showcase. Managers can use the UX Showcase issue template to create a tracking issue for their team's showcase. See how to use templates.
To limit the amount of post-UX Showcase editing, please start and stop (not pause) the recording after each topic. This will ensure that each topic saves as an individual clip, which is much faster to edit than a 1-hour clip. Choose "record to computer" each time you record.
If you need to edit the videos at all, you can use a video editor like iMovie.
After the sessions are over, update the UX showcase schedule.
