Software Usability for software developers
Host: James Coplien
Usability is an important element of modern software development. This track will explore this field and stress that it's important for non usability experts to have a basic understanding of this field to increase the success of software being built.
The format of the track includes a sequence of presentations during the day with a panel wrapup at the end of the day. The goal for this track is to make people aware of the crucial importance of the user interface in software products, the importance of good analysis of the user environment, and the use of suitable software structures to support the interface.
The audience will be able to take home concrete, usable ideas. Also we want to stimulate critical thinking. Having complementary and sometimes conflicting perspectives will enrich the dialogue.
