10 Commandments of UX

By Nick Finck and Raina Van Cleave.

Great talk about UX and what it means.

Notes
  • UX is a focus
  • The core elements are represented by the honeycomb diagram
  • The user is always right
  • Visualise your user – what do they do, what do they look like, what do they wear?
  • Find the user’s sweet spot, which is a cross between your objectives, technology requirements and the user needs
  • 95% of users aren’t reading 80% of your content – this makes your content even more important
  • Access to your site is for everyone, not just your core users (all ages, all cultures, all devices)
  • Think about the 1 thing users should be able to do and focus on that
  • Learn from failure – Einstein, Jordan, Walt Disney all failed but got back up

CSS3 design with HTML5

Panel

An intro into CSS3 and HTML5.

Notes
  • It doesn’t have to look the same in every browser
  • There are HTML5 and CSS3 techniques you can use today
  • Educate IE6 customers – if need be use the “it’ll cost more to make sure it looks the same on IE6″ technique
  • HTML5 doctype is very simple – once you declare it you’re ‘buzz word’ compliant
  • When using the new HTML5 elements use the IE Javascript fix (like this one)

Awesome day and loads of parties to finish the day off.

I’ve setup a posterous blog for various SXSW tidbits if you want to follow it too.
