Spokane .NET Users Group (SNUG) Presents: Create Great .NET User Interfaces
Wednesday, May 10, 2006 at 6:00 pm, Presented by Phil Weber. Even the most beautifully coded application will flop if people hate to use it. And they will, if its user interface is not designed with their goals in mind. What makes a great UI? How can you apply the principles that work so well for the guts of an application to its front end? We'll examine specific techniques (with code!) that you can use immediately to reduce complexity for your users and improve your .NET presentation layer's efficiency and maintainability. Meetings are held in room 301 of the Herak building on the Gonzaga University campus. Parking is available on Sharp and the surrounding neighborhood, but on campus parking requires a pass.
