User Experience 101

Leave a comment

User Experience (UX) is the foundation of developing any user facing system, application, website – it is designing for the User. It’s vital to have a good understanding of UX before embarking on development work. Nick Finck’s presentation The Ten Commandments of User Experience is a great starting point. I love the 10 commandments he’s put together:

  1.  The User is always right – You are not the user and neither is your boss!
  2. Understand the User
  3. Avoid Solutioneering – identify and fully understand problems before finding a solution
  4. Form follows Function
  5. Content is King
  6. Innovate, don’t Imitate
  7. Access is for Everyone
  8. Plan before you Design
  9. Understand the Goal
  10. Learn from Failure
