The Two-sided Mobius Strip of Design: A Developer’s Guide to Building Applications for Humans – By Michael Moncada

The area of User Experience (UX) is a blended area of expertise that involves several cross-cutting academic disciplines include Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Cognitive Psychology, and Anthropology. Please join me as I discuss simple ways engineers can apply UX principles to help enhance the overall design of their applications. This presentation is meant to offer insight to engineers, designers and quite frankly anyone who is concerned with balancing great system engineering with increased user satisfaction, engagement and goal fulfilment. As an added bonus, for those with technical chomps, examples will incorporate snippets using AngularJS 2/Typescript 2/HTML5 and liberally incorporate the aid of UX resources freely available on the web.
