Poorly designed web applications fail to serve both the business and the users, leading to a unnecessary costs, and frustrated customers. By keeping the user in mind, and following a few simple guidelines, you can make huge leaps in the way your users interact with your applications.
In this session, we will focus on the enterprise - where the user-base is known and fairly consistent, but typically where user interface and interaction are not the top most priorities. We will discuss some rules for good design, look at a few simple design elements that can make your web apps shine, and your users rejoice.
