The Analytics of Designing Software Products

  • Oct 19, 2012 · 12:30 PM
  • USF

What most people don't know is that designing software that looks good is often the easy part. The real trick is in designing software that is both effortless to use and highly profitable. Most of the great software you see is the result of endless iteration guided by good data. In this talk, I'll share some of the numbers, metrics and analytics I like to use when designing software and do a review of the latest testing methodologies available to us when we're focused on optimizing our designs for revenue.

Speaker Bio

    Are there more specific directions on the talk location? USF @ 101 Howard seems pretty general! :-)
