For years now, Ive been running around preaching to anyone wholl listen that UX is something that everybody (not just UX people) needs to be doing. Dave has done an excellent job of explaining what developers need to know about UX, in a complete but compact, easy-to-absorb, and implementable form. Developers, come and get it!

Master User Experience and Interaction Design from the Developers Perspective


For modern developers, UX expertise is indispensable: Without outstanding user experience, your software will fail. Now, David Platt has written the first and only comprehensive developers guide to achieving a world-class user experience.


Quality user experience isnt hard, but it does require developers to think in new ways. The Joy of UX shows you how, with plenty of concrete examples. Firmly grounded in reality, this guide will help you optimize usability and engagement while also coping with difficult technical, schedule, and budget constraints.


Platts technology-agnostic approach illuminates all the principles, techniques, and best practices you need to build great user experiences for the web, mobile devices, and desktop environments. He covers the entire process, from user personas and stories through wireframes, layouts, and execution. He also addresses key issuessuch as telemetry and securitythat many other UX guides ignore. Youll find all the resources and artifacts you need: complete case studies, sample design documents, testing plans, and more.


This guide shows you how to

  • Recognize and avoid pitfalls that lead to poor user experiences
  • Learn the crucial difference between design and mere decoration
  • Put yourself in your users shoesunderstand what they want (and where, when, and why)
  • Quickly sketch and prototype user interfaces for easy refinement
  • Test your sketches on real users or appropriate surrogates
  • Integrate telemetry to capture the best possible usage information
  • Use analytics to accurately interpret the data youve captured
  • Solve unique experience problems presented by mobile environments
  • Secure your app without compromising usability any more than necessary
  • Polish your UX to eliminate user effort everywhere you can
