imageI'll be reprising my Tech.Ed talk - "The Art and Science of UX" at CHISIG tomorrow night (30th) in Adelaide.

A great user experience means more than drop shadows and rounded corners. It might end with placing elements on a screen, but user experience starts much further upstream, maybe even before requirements! In this presentation we’ll discuss the elements of user experience and how to apply them. We will talk about the role user experience design plays - not just in delivering successful end products and services - but also in facilitating communication and direction within project teams. We’ll cover a mix of tactical and strategic steps to improve user experience. If you could only do one thing to improve your application’s UX, what would it be? (You might be surprised.) This talk focuses on practical, realistic ways to ensure your next project delivers a great user experience.
