We create Experience when we create web sites. But, despite the growth in technology and tools, a person’s online experience is still very much ensconced in the web-based way of interacting. These limits, real or perceived, are working against web developers. Creating web sites that act like applications means thinking like software designers.
From mental models to dialog etiquette, we can take lessons from Interaction Design and make exponential strides to improve web experiences by learning how software designers determine, define and develop applications. We’ll talk about how to design complex systems that are event-based (web apps) instead of information-based (web sites).
Come spend an hour with Jina Bolton (web design) and Eris Stassi (interaction design) as they take you through core points of HCI and how to translate that knowledge into creating better web experiences.
