Developers Can’t Design (and Other Completely Mistaken Design Myths)

A session at CodePaLOUsa 2012

Friday 16th March, 2012

2:00pm to 3:00pm (EST)

De-mystifying the design process for developers by clarifying design misconceptions and providing usable design principles and tools for making better applications.

Designers are designers and developers are developers and never the twain shall meet, right? Except – not really. There are some imaginary lines drawn around the two disciplines of design and development, but the truth is they are closely intertwined, and it can be very useful for a developer to have design knowledge and skills in his or her toolbox. This presentation will correct some commonly-held misconceptions about design, cover the basics of design from a developer’s perspective and explore how a developer can employ these principles to build clearer, cleaner and more usable applications.
