Information spaces on the Web are becoming increasingly filled with complex interactions. Even simple transactional solutions like shopping carts and document management systems are becoming more complex with richer desktop-like interaction models. Because of this, today’s designers need access to disciplines like interaction design and software design to create powerful and successful web applications.
One of the areas that excites us the most is that we’re now seeing Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) applications suddenly give application developers a new way to approach hard problems with surprisingly effective results. Every day, we’re seeing sites such as Google, Flickr, and Del.icio.us use new interaction models to create more powerful user experiences.
In this week’s UIEtips article, UIE’s Joshua Porter has interviewed David (Heller) Malouf, a premier Interaction Designer, to discuss the issues involved when development teams are thinking about designing web applications using AJAX and RIAs.
We’ve been so impressed with David’s commentaries on thr topic of RIAs, we’ve asked him to co-present a full-day seminar with Bill Scott at User Interface 11. David and Bill will teach a full-day seminar exploring some of the most important issues surrounding the web’s most sophisticated applications.
