Technicians (IT Crowd)
GOOD technicians have strong hard skills
(good experience and knowledge for
REALLY GOOD technicians have good
80% technicians don't care enough about
I did what to do. That's all!
New features vs new details
Who are the users?
After 1 week my form is 2 times faster
100% customer see only the interface,
the errors, and your face!!!
“User experience (abbreviated: UX) is the
quality of experience a person has when
interacting with a specific design. This can
range from a specific artifact such as a cup,
toy or website, up to larger, integrated
experiences such as a museum or an
Graphical User Interfaces
In our work, user experience comes for
90% from the GUI.
GUI MUST be designed FOR users (in
particular for stupid monkey users)
Learn by observe:
1) Less features – more details
Don't try to add non requested features
“The details are not the details. They make
the design.” Charles Eames
MAKE IT WORKS!
2) Keep it simple!
Use simple interfaces!
Don't make complex what
...and everything can be
though in a simple way
Reuse your interfaces as
much as you can
3) Know your users
Usually users don't know what they
...but they know what they hate.
Speak with your user and understand what
Use paper to draw a lot of stories...
4) Design the interface first
Spend a lot of time to make choose in the
interface (colors, page structure, ...) ...
...and don't change it anymore...
...unless you have good reasons (budget
+= 100K €)
Back-end MUST adapt itself to GUI
workflows (unless exist valid reason)
Development is more naturally business
driven (first the workflow, then low priority
...and is directly from top to bottom.
Your soft skills are more important than
your hard skills.
User is not smart like you!
New icon is more simple to remember than
new chapter in documentation
What user doesn't need, doesn't exist for
him (or will be easily forgotten)
Keep it simple and make it work!
