Boosting the user experience through attractiveness and rich interactions

A session at SDD 2014

  • Tobias Komischke

Tuesday 20th May, 2014

2:00pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

User experience is far more than usability. This presentation covers two crucial topics that can boost (or wreck) the user experience of software products. Attractiveness is one goal that every stakeholder wants to have for a product, but what is attractiveness? How can it be designed? What are the dos and don’ts? Rich interaction capabilities allow modern development platforms like WPF and Silverlight to provide much nuanced user-application interactions. Yet, are those rich features always really useful, usable and desirable? The presentation shows good (i.e. beneficial) and bad (i.e. disruptive) uses of rich interactions.
