Interface Usability - Adding Schweppervescence
Speaker: Adam Cogan
iPhones give an awesome User Experience but interface design is not something that belongs solely in the world of Apple. Your website and applications can all benefit greatly from an understanding of how your users might navigate your product. Unfortunately for developers, interface usability is something of an afterthought, making your otherwise perfect application suck.
In this session, get real world examples of good and bad usability from Adam. Bring along your websites and applications and undergo the Adam Cogan crash test!
The session will commence with a detailed discussion of good interface design and usability, and then move onto an analysis of good and bad site examples.
The presentation will Finish with an open floor workshop to discuss user submitted sites and applications, and workshop improvements for attendeesas well as a vote on applying the correct architecture in certain situations (Ajax vs Silverlight vs WPF vs HTML5).
