Real World UX Problem Solving
Over the past two decades software has shifted from serving professionals to being woven into every corner of life. Users no longer accept a UI that's merely functional; it has to be intuitive, fast, and visually appealing.
Our discussion will focus on the patterns and practices any developer can employ without specialized design or graphics knowledge. We'll cover how we've evolved a real-world, large application to deliver for a really difficult audience - impatient developers. You'll be able to apply these same techniques in your own apps to get better results from your user community.
