Become more mindful of the user when building digital products, and learn how to integrate a user-centered approach into your thinking as a web or app developer. This book shows you how the user experience is the responsibility of everyone involved in creating the product and how to redefine development principles when building user-centered digital products. There are still many organizations that are not design driven, and the gap between stereotypical design and development teams needs to be bridged in order to build digital products that cater to the needs of real people. We are at a point where we see organizations that cannot bring the user experience into their core thinking falling behind their competitors. You'll see how to increase the level of UX maturity within any organization by tackling what is possibly the biggest stumbling block that stands between design and development: putting user needs ahead of system efficiency. UX for Developers shows how you can adjust your focus in order to be more mindful of the user when building digital products. Learn to care about what you build, not just for the system’s sake, but for those who will use what you build. What You'll Learn Understand what it means to build websites and applications for the user, rather than from a developer’s perspective. Review the soft skills required to build more usable digital products Discover the tools and techniques to adopt a user-focused approach to development. Improve communication throughout design and development, especially between developers and non-developers. Who This Book Is For Primary audience is Web/app developers that are looking to understand what it takes to build usable digital products. Secondary audience is UX Designers who are looking to understand the viewpoint of developers; Project managers and stakeholders who need to facilitate better working relationships between developers and designers.

"User experience (UX) design is a theoretical understanding of how users interact with websites. The major challenge developers building a company website face is finding the right balance that fulfils the objectives of the company as well as the needs of their users. A poor user experience leads to losing out on customers and in turn the company losing out on money. User experience design underpins all major decisions taken by web designers when laying out web pages. It is governed by fundamental principles and practical approaches including wireframing, bootstrapping, and even pen and paper designs that gives an indication about the user experience that a successful site needs to offer to its users. UX Design for Web Developers is a breakthrough guide that reveals the fundamental rules that govern how most people read and work with websites, through the process of redesigning a mobile friendly website. We'll start off our journey by understanding why we need UX, how UX came to be, and where it fits in the business and web development. We'll explore the fundamental skills for structuring and defining a website along with content strategy. We'll take a look at a variety of media touch points that have potential to engage and influence your audience's experience. With an overall review of some of the best practices of UX design we'll start building our application with screens that allow us to think about the interactions. We'll touch down on the important concept of setting up wireframes and fix the loophole of static application by building a simple clickable, prototype using the Invision tool. We'll complete our journey with a finished website plan ready for testing and feedback. By the end of this course, you will gain the ability to think like a UX designer, through engaging human centered design practices, UX methodologies, useful UX tricks, as well as skills required for interactive web designing."--Resource description page.

Most tools developers want to improve the user experience but are not given the time, lack the techniques, or don’t know where to begin. This book addresses these issues to empower tools developers to make positive steps toward improving the user experience of their tools. Designing the User Experience of Game Development Tools explains how to improve the user experience of game development tools. The first part of the book details the logic behind why the user experience of game tools must be improved. The second part introduces the concept of user-centered design, a process that revolves around understanding people’s goals, watching them work, learning the context in which they work, and understanding how they think. Ideal for anyone who makes, uses, or benefits from game development tools, the book presents complex concepts in a manner that is accessible to those new to user experience design. The book illustrates many proven concepts and techniques using before-and-after examples from tools development to supply you with the real-world understanding you need to become a better game developer. It also describes how to get buy-in from your team. Although concepts have been simplified for those who are learning about user experience for the first, the text also includes resources in the footnotes for those who want more details. The book includes access to a companion website, www.UXofGameTools.com, that contains the latest revisions for the book as well as contact information. You can also follow the official Twitter account @UXofGameTools to see the latest updates and articles related to the improvement of the user experience.

The Lean UX approach to interaction design is tailor-made for today’s web-driven reality. In this insightful book, leading advocate Jeff Gothelf teaches you valuable Lean UX principles, tactics, and techniques from the ground up—how to rapidly experiment with design ideas, validate them with real users, and continually adjust your design based on what you learn. Inspired by Lean and Agile development theories, Lean UX lets you focus on the actual experience being designed, rather than deliverables. This book shows you how to collaborate closely with other members of the product team, and gather feedback early and often. You’ll learn how to drive the design in short, iterative cycles to assess what works best for the business and the user. Lean UX shows you how to make this change—for the better. Frame a vision of the problem you’re solving and focus your team on the right outcomes Bring the designers’ toolkit to the rest of your product team Share your insights with your team much earlier in the process Create Minimum Viable Products to determine which ideas are valid Incorporate the voice of the customer throughout the project cycle Make your team more productive: combine Lean UX with Agile’s Scrum framework Understand the organizational shifts necessary to integrate Lean UX Lean UX received the 2013 Jolt Award from Dr. Dobb's Journal as the best book of the year. The publication's panel of judges chose five notable books, published during a 12-month period ending June 30, that every serious programmer should read.
