The importance of user-developer interactions during the development of an information system has been a long-running theme in information systems research. This research seeks to highlight a gap in the current literature: the contribution of the developer’s formal educational background to the relationship between developers and users. Using an interpretivist epistemology, the researchers employed qualitative interviews to examine how far developers’ perception of the importance of interacting with the user was influenced by their formal education, or the lack thereof. Interviewing both formally and informally trained developers, eleven categories of interest were identified as pertinent to determining the developers’ beliefs about the importance of user interaction. Three of these categories were explored as promising for future research: academic background, work experience, and developer’s access to user knowledge. This research has implications for education of information systems developers as well as for industry interested in hiring software developers.
