In a recent entry in his blog, John Taber, reviews his search for a good web framework. “In converting some software from java and c++ to web based systems, our first step was to choose a coding platform. Note I didn’t say language or framework or IDE—today it’s more of a package deal where one part depends on another. Today the clamor and hype is over frameworks. But in our case, we choose to cut through all that and ask: Is a “framework” needed? What is the right structure for a web based program? And what is the most productive, agile way we can get the job done?”

Digital Web Magazine published an excellent article yesterday by Mike Padilla on user interface design. I would recommend this read to everyone involved in application development, even if you are not a designer. Marketers, engineers, salesmen, and administrators could all benefit from understanding the complexity of designing interfaces and the blancing act required when choosing between costs and benefits. “When evaluating the net usability of one design versus another, a logical process should be followed to effectively evaluate the compromises that accompany each. To judge the good with the bad, you need a UI ruler by which to measure.”
For our July meeting, Wade Preston Shearer will presented on web application user interface development. Highlighting techniques for building lean, robust, and standards-based interfacese that are intuitive, accessible, and astetically pleasing, he covered topics such as powerful markup, styling, browser compliance, and tips and tricks for graphic creation.
