…You always have to have one eye open to the question: what can the technology do? How can you build it? What are the possibilities? And one eye open to the question: what are people doing and how would this fit in? What would they do with it? … I think the challenge is to really keep knowledge of both technology and the people playing off against each other in order to develop new things.
Today the user experience is the whole system; it is the interface and the experiences that define success, the code and business model are often secondary. Users only bother with activities that are obvious, simple, and pleasing. All this means that the most challenging and interesting part of software development is the user experience (UX).
This course focuses on understanding, evaluating, and designing user experiences. In the context of practical projects, we will learn the human, social, organizational, business model, and technical aspects of UX design.
