Sioux Hot-or-Not keynote in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Create the UX the end-user of the high-tech machine or application actually needs with storyboarding, advanced data visualization, Digital Twin, sparklines, applied Gestalt principles, working graphs and direct UI manipulation, and metrics correlation for root cause analysis.
The state of your prototype must reflect the state of completion of your system. This simple guideline is also very profound. The degree of certainty in your design should be reflected in the level of completion of your prototype. The project starts with a rough storyboard which is highly uncertain and full of assumptions: no one knows if
the audience will find the product useful, if they will pay for it, or even if the product can (or should) be built.
Anything that slows down customers or gets in their way after they download your app is a bad thing. That includes sign-up/sign-in forms that show up even before potential customers can figure out if the app is actually worth using.
For many years since its release, the Android OS has been behaving like a teenager in the grip of raging hormones.
