Build award-winning, user-friendly interfaces
It seems like it should be fairly easy to create effortless, engaging user interfaces for desktop and web applications, but producing software that creates an enjoyable user experience is much harder than you’d think. With Effective UI, you’ll learn proven user-experience strategies that will delight your clients and customers, drive business value, and increase brand strength. You’ll also understand how to create and harness the collaborative and cooperative spirit among designers, engineers, and management required for building engaging software.
Learn how to build software that will:
—Generate engaging and interactive experiences between consumers and businesses, or between businesspeople and their information systems
—Account for how people work with, think about, and consume information
—Establish a richer means of collaboration and communication
—Reduce frustration by streamlining complex tasks and creating processes that are more intuitive
—Distinguish products, services, and brands to create a competitive advantage
—Create scalable systems that adapt to changing user needs and behaviors
“Effective UI is a fantastic resource for any software developer or business manager who wants to learn more about the ultimate value of creating a great user experience.”
--Ryan Stewart, Platform Evangelist, Adobe Systems, Inc.
