It is all about Passion. Have an interest about your users, your field of work and your product. He recalls an incident where he had to filter Halaal restaurants in his site.
Not everyone, but most of the users prefer being anonymous. – Tharshan
Social and Interactions are interconnected. Users rather follow another persons review and go try out something new than depend on a robot. – Tharshan
Using Artificial Intelligence to search content and to rate. – Tharshan
Typography. Users dont go into every para. They go read whatever pleases their eye. – Tharshan
Intuitive Designs are a lot more better on some sites. So the user doesn’t need any instructions. – Tharshan
site was bloated after he implemented all the features he had added. Visual Clues are important.
“Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” – Da Vinci
Tharshan says that the feedback he got was a lot more helpful to him. UIs can change, but user experience won’t.
Tharshan says he came with the idea to come with this site was after his friends saying it to him.
We are back. Now we have Tharshan Venkadesan, will share the experience of creation of tasty.lk site.
Ashraff concludes. We are now breaking for a small break. be right back.
Ashraff’s message in a nutshell -> this is a 2 way approach, get experts to evaluate your system.
Make your content searchable, watchable so everyone could easily can keep updated.
Google site error page is an example of a proper site which explains and has additional information.
Aesthetic and Minimalist Design grabs the attention. 2-3 bold colors, enough space to breath would be an idea site.
Recognizing things could be in form of text, color, symbols, icons and such. You don’t have to remember stuff anymore. it is just a matter of recalling.
Error prevention. than cancelling a process, it is better to prevent that error. – Ashraff
System consistency could be for anything, but the process behind is almost the same.
Emergency exits, is as important as having a cancel button while deleting files on a PC. – Ashraff
Providing ‘undo’ and ‘redo’ button in your app could be a life saver for some users across the globe. – Ashraff
Using proper and acceptable language language in your app is very important so the user finds error to correct it. – Ashraff
Ashraff explains why system and the real world user experience has to match. He explains it with a example.
The importance of usability is very important that presentations were made on themevenn on 1990s. – Ashraff
Ashaff Hussain from 99x Technology will share his thought with us on Do’s and Don’t about application usability.
