Software developers take to design

Software developers pick up scissors and glue stick to discover design.

It is fun to mix technology with good old fashion design fundamentals. I am teaching my third “Design for Developers” course and it couldn’t be going any better.

Many developers are very good at what they do (developing apps) but lack the design background or confidence to design successful user interfaces.

This week I am in Germany teaching folks who create server installers how to create better user experiences using plain old design fundamentals, and then adding features from SketchFlow, Silverlight and WPF… a successful combination of tools and skills.
