Bad usability wastes users’ time, it increases the risk of user error and worst; it can make your users hate you.
We all as Vaadin users know this, and Vaadin as a component based framework helps us on the way.
However it’s still our own responsibility to create applications that our users know how to use and love to use. And love so much they’ll buy the next app and let us keep our jobs.
We all know what bad usability is, but how can we design highly usable apps? Where do we start? How do we ensure we don’t become blind to our own work?
Rolf Smeds from the Vaadin UX team gave a lecture on UI/UX Design in the “Vaadin at the University” series a few months back, pinpointing exactly these questions.
