Steve Smith, Ordered List: Stop Being an Idiot

Video of this talk is available on Screencast

Who: Steve Smith, Ordered List

When: September 28, 2010

We're back! This September marks the beginning of Software GR's eighth year, and we're off to a great start. We're starting off with a bit of a change: we'll be recording all of our talks this season and posting them here. You can see the "Meeting Recordings" widget to the right. We'd love to have you at our meetings, but if you can't make it in person, be sure to check out the video.

And don't forget: our sponsors give us the support we need to do all this!

About the presentation

Your visitors aren't stupid. Sure, they may be inexperienced with technology. They may be frustrated with their lack of experience. They may even be embarrassed by it. But they're not stupid. We'll discuss engaging your visitors through design and workflow, and how your software can be respectful, attentive, and even helpful.

About the speaker

Steve architects user interfaces and web designs. But it’s about more than just design, as he brings a passion for simplicity and usability.

He is a recognized authority on front-end development and interface design. He is an entrepreneur, founding Ordered List, and co-founding Sidebar Creative, both of which are outlets for his professional work. And as an author, public speaker, and University of Notre Dame professor, he is passionate about sharing his knowledge with others.

He lives in South Bend, Indiana with his wife and two children. In the rare times he’s not working, he’s either on the golf course, making home-brewed beer, or spending time with the family.
