Speaking at WebDU in Sydney in May

WebDU 2011I’m looking forward to speaking at WebDU in Sydney in May.

The talk is entitled “The Metro Design Language and what it Means to you”. Microsoft’s “Metro” design language, currently focussed on Windows Phone, is moving to XBox, Windows 8 and beyond. I’ll be talking about what Metro actually is (Microsoft isn’t exactly clear), the challenges of applying it, its strengths and weaknesses and what it says about current interaction design trends.


TechEd Australia To Go: Shane Morris on Prototypes

Here’s a 5 minute summary of my talk on prototyping from TechEd in Australia and New Zealand in 2011. I was also asked to reprise the talk at Seek later in the year, which was fun.

If you look carefully you’ll see I’m wearing a shirt from Stamford Interactive. Way to promote the opposition Shane!

In the full talk I describe 5 benefits of prototyping throughout the software development lifecycle. Prototyping isn’t just for UX!
