A video series where I talk about UX design with developers, technical founders, and fellow UX practitioners.

We talked about entry points into UX, discovery processes, career changes, development support, consulting services, and the future of remote UX consulting.

For episode 10 of More Than an Interface, I chatted with Stewart Ritchie. Stewart runs Powered by Coffee, a WordPress development agency in the UK which helps agencies, marketing teams, and designers.
For episode 009 of More Than an Interface (>UI), I chatted with Nick Urban. Nick runs Arch Digital, a consulting business which specializes in rapid R&D of web-based business software using agile processes.
Thomas Logan of Equal Entry has a lot of common ground with me, like a technical background and an interest in accessibility that developed quite similarly to my own. So when I found him through a business Slack channel where both of us are members, I knew he'd be a great guest for More Than an Interface episode 008.
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?
For episode 007 of #MoreThanAnInterface, I recap an interview with software development consultant Ben West.
Some developers come from a less traditional background. Astrid Countee of Tech For Justice is an anthropologist-turned-software engineer. She spoke with me recently about how developers, anthropologists, and UX professionals can all learn from each other. Watch More Than an Interface episode 005 for my quick recap.
The distinction between designers and developers is blurring, and some people switch from one of these roles to the other. David Coulter is one such designer-turned-developer. Recently for More Than an Interface episode 004, we discussed career changes, design trends, collaboration, and mentorship.
What battles over your product’s UI and UX are worth fighting? And how can we help developers with great ideas overcome coder’s block? For episode 003 of More Than an Interface, I spoke with a mobile developer in Northern Virginia - Amazon alumnus Pietro Rea - about this.
In Episode 002 of More Than an Interface (>UI), I caught up with fellow University of Maryland Computer Science alum Kevin Conroy. Kevin is now the Chief Product Officer at GlobalGiving, which helps people in over 150 countries benefit from user-centered design.
More Than an Interface (>UI) is a new video series where I talk with developers, UX professionals, and entrepreneurs about UX and development. In this first episode, I summarize a Slack chat I had with one of my clients, a technical startup founder in Canada.
