Steve Krug on usability

Tuesday 16 December 2008

One my favorite software development books is “Don’t make me think” by Steve Krug. It is a book that everybody even remotely involved in creating applications or websites for users should read. Practical and down to earth advice in how to approach the difficult subject usability. 

Steve gave a presentation  on the Business of Software conference this year. His presentation is now available as a video on blip.tv. A bit dry on tone, but great on content. Besides it nice to hear him speak and explain about some great and not so great examples of web design. If you have never seen eyetracking software at work watch around minute 14:00 and onwards, gives you a feel how people actually look at pages. In fact more scanning than looking.
