"For designers and software architects, this volume on user interface design provides a discussion of practical and theoretical concerns surrounding the development of user experiences in computer software. Not designed to provide coding specifics, and language and platform agnostic, the work looks at key features of interface design from the generalized perspective of software design, development, and production. Topics discussed include culture and user interface design, strategies for global companies and products, field research, and planning for globalization."--Reference and Research Book News, Inc.
