I had a great time presenting for the first time at DevCon on the Psychology of Interaction Design in Las Vegas. It was FileMaker’s 30th anniversary year, and the 20th DevCon as well.
I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be speaking at the 2015 FileMaker Developers’ Conference in Las Vegas for the first time, on the psychology of interaction design. In other words, what do we need to know about people in order to design effective applications?
The session will cover aspects of cognition, memory and learning, vision, and user testing, among other things. The goal of the session will be to help you see and correct potential problems in your design, so you can improve the experience for your users.
It’s been one year since I published the first article to the blog. (Yay!) Thank you to everyone who has read, shared, liked, followed, commented, submitted articles or shared resources to the blog in its first year. I’m so grateful, because without you, I’d just be talking to myself! And that’s just weird…
I’d love to learn more about my readers (that’s you!) so I’m taking this opportunity to ask if you’d share some of your thoughts with me in this short survey.
Albert Harum-Alvarez and SmallCo are hosting another Design Master Class in Miami from December 3–6, 2014. The idea is for you to bring something you’ve been working on, and improve and refine it over the course of the class. You’ll both move your project forward and learn a lot about design in the process.
Don Clark of FileMakerProGurus has started a video interview series with what he calls “influential people in the FileMaker community,” and I’m very honoured and pleased to be the first interviewee!
He asked me how I became a FileMaker developer, what design tools I like to use, and more. Watch the video to learn more about me and why I love design and FileMaker. You can read Don’s original article and link to the video here. Check out the rest of his site while you’re there.
