Interaction design for developers

Hi all,

I'm in charge of a 2 day workshop with a bunch of skilled developers
regarding user experience. I want to show that an understanding of the users
interaction flow and the user goals are as important as technical knowledge.

Any suggestions for training on MS Expression Blend?


I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on companies for training on the MS Expression Blend application?

I've taken a look at the online video tutorial on and the MS Expression site, but they don't really have exercises I can follow along.

I liked how gave training for their product, but the same idea is not there for MS Expression Blend.

Any help is appreciated!

Merci buckets!

Rockstars and Professional Development (was: Hiring Strategies)

Hi Will,

Yes, I've seen that too. Unfortunately, with the current state of the
market how can someone hire rock stars when there are more jobs than

wants to work with an arrogant person in a team environment.

>From my experience, a company who doesn't contribute to professional
development is not one worth working for.

Conflict of Usability goals with Training objectives?

This is a question more from overall product strategy point of view.
The scenario is a typical product redesign initiative with full UCD
recommendations. This involves the whole 9 yards with close
interactions with users. Also, the same team is assigned to carry out
research for training needs too. This is causing some to be skeptical
about the approach.
