GUI Bloopers: Don’ts and Do’s for Software Developers and Web Designers (Interac
|GUI Bloopers looks at user interface design bloopers from commercial software, Web sites, and information appliances, explaining how intelligent, well-intentioned professionals made these dreadful mistakes–and how you can avoid them. While equipping you with all the theory needed to learn from these examples, GUI expert Jeff Johnson also presents the reality of interface design in an entertaining, anecdotal, and instructive way. This is an excellent, well-illustrated resource for anyone whose work touches on usability issues, including software engineers, Web site designers, managers of development processes, QA professionals, and usability professionals. * -Takes a learn-by-example approach that teaches you to avoid common errors by asking the appropriate questions of your own interface designs. * -Includes two complete war stories, drawn from the author’s personal experience, that describe in detail the challenges faced by UI engineers. * -Covers bloopers in a wide range of categories: GUI components, layout and appearance, text messages, interaction strategies, Web site design, responsiveness issues, management decision-making, and even more at www.GUI-bloopers.com. * -Organized and formatted based on the results of its own usability testing–so you can quickly find the information you need, packaged in easily digested pieces. The importance of sound GUI design is unquestioned throughout the software industry. Nonetheless, thousands of programmers find themselves working on user interfaces without the specialized knowledge they believe to be necessary. This book is a source of advice and instruction for the non-expert who want to equip their products with the most effective interfaces possible.|

|“Better read this book, or your design will be featured in Bloopers II. Seriously, bloopers may be fun in Hollywood outtakes, but no movie director would include them in the final film. So why do we find so many bloopers in shipped software? Follow Jeff Johnson as he leads the blooper patrol deep into enemy territory: he takes no prisoners but reveals all the design stupidities that users have been cursing over the years.” _Jakob Nielsen, Usability Guru, Nielsen Norman Group “If you are a software developer, read this book, especially if you don’t think you need it. Don’t worry, it isn’t filled with abstract and useless theory–this is a book for doers, code writers, and those in the front trenches. Buy it, read it, and take two sections daily.” _Don Norman, President, UNext Learning Systems|
