>UI007: Automation & Developer Experience

Automation helps us reduce tedious work and errors, and it also helps technology keep moving forward. What if developers had to work with old technology and always code their own data structures? It would be much harder to write the software they are expected to write today.

For episode 007 of #MoreThanAnInterface, I recap an interview with software development consultant Ben West. Here’s what we discussed:

• How he became interested in automation
• How investing in Developer Experience (#DX) helps end users (#UX)
• How designers can make his job easier
• How agile processes help user experience
• How he handles UI requirements that don’t make sense
