Your UI can make or break the application (to the user, anyway)

A session at code4lib 2012

  • Robin Schaaf

Thursday 9th February, 2012

11:00am to 11:20am (PST)

Robin Schaaf, University of Notre Dame, schaaf.4@nd.edu

UI development is hard and too often ends up as an after-thought to computer programmers - if you were a CS major in college I'll bet you didn't have many, if any, design courses. I'll talk about how to involve the users upfront with design and some common pitfalls of this approach. I'll also make a case for why you should do the screen design before a single line of code is written. And I'll throw in some ideas for increasing usability and attractiveness of your web applications. I'd like to make a case study of the UI development of our open source ERMS.
