In my teenage years, I wanted to be a designer. It never worked out because I was terrible at design. Later in life, I was able to scratch that itch with web development. It wasn’t in the design of the interfaces but rather the code.
Later in life, I discovered Dieter Rams. His work is inspirational, functional, and beautiful. Recently, I stumbled across his “ten principles for good design,” and I couldn’t help but think about how they apply to web development.
This talk will:
- walk through each of the ten principles
- look at examples of his work
- apply each principle to software development
- encourage refactoring
- encourage thinking twice when writing new code
Someone attending this talk would, hopefully, find applicable and valuable principles of design to take back to their code.
