Science of Great UI - World Tour

01 April 2008

Will be presenting one of my favorite sessions, The Science of Great UI, at a number of upcoming events, including:

This session presents great design priniciples to developers with an emphasis on simplicity and clarity, and bridges the gap between code and customer. Here's the official description for this session:

Explore the how and why of great UI. If you believe you’re not an artist, that UI is merely subjective, or that a great UI is not worth the effort, then this session is for you. You’ll learn how to measure UI quality, covering user models, entry points, orienteering, and discoverability, with tips and code samples for the WPF and .NET developer sprinkled throughout. Regardless of whether you’re building WPF applications or the traditional Windows Forms or Web ones, you’ll learn how to reduce visual noise, lower barriers to entry, enhance clarity, and in general make your applications a pleasure to use. It’s all about making your customers happy and this session will show you how.

If possible, can a bit more advance notice be given? This is a bit of a surprise to those of us around Victoria... ☻

How's that a "World Tour"? It's just one continent.

Could you post the slides or a video of the session, so us non-Americans can benefit, too? Please?

@Chris.. after reading one of your posts, i gather you are "down-under".. this Victoria meeting was in Victoria, BC Canada, although the same principle applies ☻ but at least you didn't actually miss it (unless you wanted to accumulate some air miles)

I hear your talk at Deeper in .NET in Milwaukee and it was fantastic.  One of the best presentations I have seen in a long time.

I've always been one of those who said "I'm not a designer, I can't create 'great' interfaces."  You've helped me to re-evaluate that and look at interface design more closely.

Some people (including myself) were asking you to publish screen casts of a Science of Great UI session.  

I don't if your aware of that but apparently somebody took care of it and it is available on Internet, just google for 'Science of Great UI' and you'll come across a 2 part video (Boise Code Camp 2008  something).

Very interesting session !
