Refactored #071: “User Experience”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Wait — stop the music — developers are… NOT?… good at design?
  • Chris blames the Curse of Knowledge. Frank riffs on that, but we all know he’s skating by.
  • Who’s less tech savvy, teachers or seniors? FIGHT!
  • Frank makes a great analogy to cars, that hide all of their complexity.
  • Chris recommends personas for helping to combat the tribulations of UX/UI.
  • Frank recommends getting feedback from real human people (not developers) early and often.
  • … and much more!
