Above and beyond feedback, micro-interactions can also add a human element to your interface. Do you have an opinion on the heart v. star interaction on the Twitter app? If so, you're tuned into micro-interactions and their power.
As described in Dan Saffer's book Microinteractions, these tiny details typically serve a range of essential functions in your design, from communicating feedback, demonstrating accomplishment of an individual task, or helping users visualize the results of their actions and prevent errors.
In this session, we'll workshop your own interfaces and look for opportunities to improve, add, or subtract micro-interactions.
