Why Developers Hate You and What You Can Do About It

The goal of this session is to look at UX from the eyes of a developer, discussing how they make their decisions about experience and showing UXers how they can break down the wall that user interface designers built up. Most developers have lived in a world where UX was their sole responsibility. Now that green screens and battleship gray are no longer the defaults, devices and platforms drive new interactions with the user. Developers need some additional motivation as times change. With over 30 years of experience working with developers, Jeff Julian and John Alexander have created a list of topics developers need to know about UX and how to present these topics in their language.

This highly interactive and entertaining session is for the UX professional who wants to help bridge the gap between developers and themselves.
