Programmers have a bad reputation when it comes to UX, but it's time to set the record straight: It isn't because we don't care! It's because we fall in the trap of thinking we can design a user interface and write it at the same time when, the truth is, these processes require different kinds of thinking. But learning how to unlock that part of your brain is worth it-- and you'll be surprised at what you already know. From one developer to another, this talk will discuss why you should think critically about the interfaces you write and give you strategies you can start applying right away.

Engaging and polished speaker. Nice use of humor in showing of the "Programmer Interfaces" Coaching humility is a tough pill to swallow at times. Thanks for the presentation

Great talk! Everyone should be able to understand the basics of UX. We don't have to be experts to be able to make non-crappy interfaces.

Great Talk!
I really enjoyed your perspective and showing off the ugly interfaces.

I would have liked to seen a few examples ugly interfaces transformed into better interfaces. That would have been helpful to avoid pitfalls that we all probably do.

Overall GREAT talk!

Good overview on stepping back and having a conversation with people -- your users, your fellow devs, your UX people -- to arrive at an actual usable interface. Captured many of the things our company has been going through and are trying to do.

Minor quibble... Needs more otters.

Excellent talk. I think all software should make UX a top priority. Also, the otter palate cleanser was much appreciated after the horrors of bad interfaces. Those interfaces shall haunt my dreams.
