Venue: Ambassador 3, Marriott Hotel Karachi
What is it : A 45 minute interactive session discussing the basics of user interface design principles , with more focus on web applications.
To a person using an application, the user interface is the application itself. Aside from techies, most people/customers/users out there do not care how many lines of code our application has, but they do care about how easy and painless our application is to use while performing its core functions. Why is this important? Because happy users are return customers.
We will discuss how your user thinks, some important design concepts, how and when to incorporate usability testing into the project lifecycle and what areas to focus on for fast results, such as error messages, layouts, and navigation.
Who is it for : For developers, QA engineers and analysts, anyone who wants to understand how to increase adoption of your user base.
