Practical Design for Developers

David Verba, Director of Technology, Adaptive Path

Date: Saturday, May 19
Time: 2:50pm - 3:40pm
Location: Oregon Ballroom 201

Ajax, Rails, other application frameworks, and the rise in popularity of more iterative development processes means that many developers find themselves working more closely with designers or even being charged with design themselves. You know that a great user experience is key but how can you make sure your project is a success?

In this session, we will survey principals of visual design, interaction design, information architecture, and user research. Using these concepts as a foundation, we will discuss important design issues, leading to methods to address them. Whether you need to work with a designer or do the work yourself, you will leave this session with resources, ideas, and examples you can apply immediately.
