Developers on Better Design, User Experience and Why It Matters

The PDC BOF team is pleased to announce another Birds-of-a-Feather session.

Developers on Better Design, User Experience and Why It Matters

What is the return-on-investment of building better User Experiences (UX)?
How does User Interface (UI) design affect your business?

Come join the discussion on why User Experience matters and how it applies to the real world.

In the current world of web 2.0 and with talk of design being important, help us understand why it matters to you and what we get out of good User Interface design. Let’s talk about the technologies on the web and on the desktop that do and don’t support the development of well designed applications, and how we can apply better practices to our own projects. Equally important, let’s discuss how we can bridge the typical gap in cross discipline team dynamics.

Tell us about your secret sauce or just listen to what others have to say. From great enabling technologies like Silverlight or WPF to tried and true web development in ASP.NET using MVC, everyone has a story to tell about UI and design in the Microsoft world.
