Alexis Allen, the first developer to be interviewed by FileMaker Pro Gurus, is presenting at FileMaker Devcon 2015 (Did I mention I’ll be there as an attendee?) on the psychology of interaction design. If you are attending, mark this one as a “must attend”:
Everyone is unique, but most humans share similar basic psychology and cognitive abilities. Understanding how design is affected by the capabilities and limitations of the human mind is key to designing more effective interactions and user interfaces. This session will cover a number of features of perception, learning and behavior, and how they influence or are affected by design decisions. You will learn practical skills you can apply to improve your user’s experiences.
