I am delivering the new improved “Pimp My App” presso at Code Camp in Adelaide this weekend (13/July). My cube neighbour Dave Glover is also presenting – on something complicated and technical no doubt.
Pimp My App
“User Experience” (UX) is so hot right now. Business magazines talk about it, stakeholders want it, people even have job titles containing it. Designers, usability engineers, information architects, psychologists and even anthropologists are all circling, fighting for a piece of the UX pie. But at the end of the day, coders own the user experience. All the drop-shadows in the world don’t mean a thing if they don’t make it into the code. Join Shane Morris – recovering developer, long-time user interface designer and Microsoft User Experience Evangelist – for a discussion of user experience from the developer’s viewpoint. What simple things can developers do to deliver better user experience? If you could only do one thing to improve your application’s user experience, what would it be? What about designers? What do they do? How can they help? How can you work effectively with them? This talk focuses on practical, realistic ways to ensure your next application delivers a great user experience.
Then I’m hanging around for the SharePoint User Group on Tuesday (15/July), where I’ll be covering the new features in Expression Studio 2.
If you’re based in Adelaide and would like me to drop in at your company Monday/Tuesday next week to discuss user experience/Silverlight/Expression then get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
Otherwise, see you at Code Camp or ASPUG! Shanemo
