Prairie Developer Conference
Featuring more than 30 presenters,over 60 sessions, and including session styles such as hands-on coding, panel discussions, and lectures, Prairie Developer Conference is an exceptional learning opportunity!
This year I’m on the board for a pair of talks on User Experience:
Designing for Success 101 – Why UX Matters For Your App
As software developers, we love to solve problems. Too often, however, we start mapping out solutions using our favourite patterns and technologies before we fully understand the goal, or we focus on functional requirements and lose sight of the big picture. In this session we’ll cover the basics of what a User Experience approach brings to the table and how it can make a difference in the success of your application.

Designing for Success 102 – 7 Ways to Make your App Learnable, Usable, and Enjoyable
Why are some apps a pleasure to use while others a source of endless pain? In this follow-up to Designing for Success 1, we’ll focus on end-user interactions. Looking at several design patterns we’ll explore how to generate less frustration and more delight for our clients and their customers.
