Event description

Description

The more people use Facebook, Amazon, and Netflix, the more they expect your software to be just as polished, and just as easy to use. Poorly-designed products suffer sooner, while well-designed products acquire customers and staying power.

This is an 80/20 course, focusing on the most valuable principles and practices of UX design, that will immediately enable you to make better software regardless of your product’s platform. It will teach you to recognize what’s wrong with a bad design, and how to refactor it into a better one. You will learn smart defaults that enable you to build a new UI from the ground up while avoiding whole categories of common design errors. You will learn the limits of these techniques, and when to engage product owners or other business sponsors for help.

Key Topics

Through lectures and hands-on labs, you’ll learn:

  • Fundamentals of visual design – The Big Four core principles for creating interfaces that clearly communicate their function.
  • Refactoring user interfaces – How to troubleshoot and improve existing designs.
  • Why Your Users Are(n’t) So Stupid – Human cognitive limitations we all share, and are all blind to, which drastically affect design.
  • Smart defaults, cheat sheets, and platform standards – Leveraging the work of others to make better software
  • Closing the Gaps – Developing interfaces that make people better at what they do.

Audience

This course is designed for UI or Front-end Developers, Software Developers, Development Managers, Software Testers, and anyone involved in the delivery of software and products.

Prerequisite

Familiarity with how software is conceived, developed, tested and delivered.
