UI Polish

Presenter: Tom Francis
Do your websites/webapps receive little or no formal feed back, and the only informal feedback is “It’s hard to use,” or “I just don’t like it”?  And you have no idea what’s wrong, because it does what these same people asked?

Then this is for you. We’ll cover the problems that often cause this kind of response, and are typically so small, you as the one who set it up don’t even notice. The problems so small most users can’t articulate them,  but they just know it’s “not right” or “hard to use.”

These are the tricks of the tricks of the trade, what separates a professional developer from a sysadmin forced to do it because there’s no one else to do it. :)
