Pragmatic Usability and UI design

6.45pm for a prompt start at 7pm.

The Talk from Gordon Plant (VP Product, BaseKit)

If you are trying to build a usable and useful application of any complexity, you’ve probably already discovered that a lot of the theory on the subject has limited practical value. Time, money and an impatient boss can often create pressures that make a by-the-book approach impossible. Even the guerilla testing so beloved of Nielsen’s fans can seem like a luxury, so how do we get good stuff designed and built?

    Hi All, Have uploaded a copy of Gordon's slides from the Talk last night, onto the SWUX Meet-up site - can be found by clicking onto the 'More' top menu drop-down, followed by clicking onto 'Files'.
    Enjoy :)

    by Mike Kuniavsky

    It was a very interesting talk, can anyone tell me the name of the recommended book (or any other good books on usability)?

    I really, really enjoyed this, took notes even. Could have happily listened for hours to more of these useful points picked up from well over 10yrs of experience :)

    ps. the actual car parking prices are a fraction when parking for an hour or two of the prices shown on the right of the link :)

    If you're looking for parking near Park St then I'd say Great George St / Charlotte St (both off Park St) have P&D. If you want free street parking then you'd need to try one of the roads off White Ladies Road.

    Hope that helps

    Hi Dave & All, This link is handy listing all the Bristol car parks - the nearest one is at no.1 (Nelson St which is just around the corner from The Pithay which is a few yards from Wine Street) shown on this link.

    Myself, I tend to park at no.33 (The Grove MudDock car park) and walk over.

    See you later :)
