Matt Powell from LeftClick talking about development. The misconception that the API is more impotant than the GUI. Common myths;

  1. Users are idiots
  2. If you build it, they will come
  3. Design is not my job
  4. Coupling is bad – fronend and backend
  5. It’s not that bad – users use the stuff for a long time – it has to work well and nicely

Advice – talk to the users and THEN design the interface
