You may not have thought about this but, as developers, we are all user experience designers. It's true. Whether we do it intentionally it or not, we create user experiences every time we write code that someone else interacts with. If you've ever used an API that behaved exactly the way you expected it to you, it's likely that someone took the time to think about who would be using that API and what their needs were. On the other hand, if you've ever tried to debug a 200 line method that did six different things, you can bet the person who wrote it wasn't thinking about maintainability, or how difficult it would be for someone trying to understand that code.
In this session we'll look at the three most common types of users we serve, what their user interface looks like, and ways to improve those interfaces and their user experience.

Learning Outcomes:
  • You will "meet" three types of users you probably didn't know you have, and understand how to design a better user experience for them.
  • You will understand the fundamentals of good User Interface and User Experience Design, and how to apply them to writing code.
  • You will walk away with a deeper appreciation of the user experiences all around you.
