How to terrify your users into submission and look cool at parties

Here are the slides and links for the “how to terrify your users” session at the Desktop First Summit.

There’s a ton of extra useful links regarding UI and UX design at the end of this post.

I’ll link to the replay here when it becomes available. Be sure to catch my other session: “How to Give your Apps the REALLY COOL Windows 10 Fluent UI Look and Feel with Delphi“.

I am also speaking on two of the panels this week too. Register now if you haven’t and catch the sessions ‘on demand’ and say hi to me in the chat window if you’re around for the panel meetings.

  1. As always, great and i appreciate your insights.
    The humor is just bonus points.
    You are a decathlon programmer!
    Thanks – Charlie Chambers

    looks like some text missing below?

    • Ah yes, it looks like the theme is drawing gray text on a gray background. Kind of ironic seeing as the post relates to UI and UX design! I’ll fix that ASAP and check it once I can actually see straight again.

      I’m glad you liked the talk. I try to make them a little more sprightly than the typical drone that sometimes falls out of webinars. Some people prefer things to be solidly technical and tedious but they’re also the kind of people with whom I don’t want to share a lifeboat if the situation ever arises. 😜
