A successful application has to focus on three dimensions-value (business), design (engineering) and usability. Usability is not only about the wow factor. It is about making the application easier and intuitive to use. In this presentation we will learn the fundamentals of creating a usable application. We will look at some basic dos and dont. These will help you move forward from being a programmer to a good application developer.
