Design matters - Even for developers

45 minute beginner keynote


Design is a crucial part of developing complex applications. And I include several types of "design": UX, UI, product or architectual design. In this talk I want to focus on the more unfamiliar types: UI, UX and product design. Different types of architecture are commonly used by developers and they accept their relevancy, but the other more graphical types of design are being pushed aside for most of the time. This is really bad.

I want to describe why exactly this is bad and provide some practical examples. I will show up benefits from including design in the very early stages of development and give you an idea, how this can work out pretty well and which workflows can support this. Many developers will not agree with this, as it creates a lot of "unnecessary overload" and makes thing "much more complicated" then it should be.
