Meeting the Challenge of Simplicity

Posted on May 16, 2009  Comments (0)

Interesting webcast by Meeting the Challenge of Simplicity by Giles Colborne. This session addresses abstract notion of simplicity, looks at why it is critical in modern UI design and answers questions: Why does simplicity matter? Is there a meaningful definition of simplicity? Why do design processes and good intentions undermine simplicity? What processes and techniques can software developers use to achieve simplicity?

InfoQ is a great site for watching presentations online. With a simple but superior interface showing a live video with a separate area showing the current slides.
