About the Developer SIG

The primary goal of the Developer SIG is to promote community learning through questioning, critical thinking, sharing of experiences, collaborative problem solving, and exploring of our differences.  Each meeting will facilitate a group discussion relating to a common problem in software development. This month’s topic, challenges with integrating UX design.

The group is facilitated by Janelle Klein, Developer and CTO with New Iron.

Challenges with Integrating UX Design

Just as we must work closer with Ops on the downstream end, we have to collaborate better with UI designers on the other end. UI designers have their own way of doing things that may not mesh well with the rest of the process… or does it? How do you balance the opportunity costs of better UX versus additional features? How do you avoid being handed a solution before anyone’s really dug into the problem? Come prepared to share your frustrations or successes with integrating UX design in the development process.
