AskTog: Interaction Design Solutions for the Real World
Interaction Design Section   Living Section   About Bruce Tognazzini

First, there was "The Article," Maximizing Windows. For some reason, it spread all over the net. Then, Jeff Kroll wrote in and asked that I explain myself further. So I did. Now, three weeks later, we're on our third issue, and the questions just keep coming in. Could it be we're on a roll?

And now for this week's update...

How to buy a Designer

"loos1" wants to know how to find a competent designer, and Ralph Brandi points out I'm not one. The new index on the right should help both.

Advice to Apple

Craig Oshima wanted some advice on building cross-platform apps. Somehow, it was Apple, instead, that received it. Maybe some day they'll listen.

Close-Coupled Testing

One of Jeff Kroll's engineer friends was strangely unsatisfied with Maximizing Your Windows, claiming anyone with state-of-the-art testing facilities and an unlimited budget can publish good software. That's true, but so can you. Testing does not have to be elaborate or expensive to produce good results.
