    It’s a very good article – 12 tips for designing an excellent checkout process – for those who involved in e-commerce related product design and development.

    Building a good checkout experience is about several things. It’s about eliminating distractions to help the user focus at the task at hand. It’s about providing all the necessary information and help so that the customer understands all the stages of the process. Most important, it’s about making it easy, because after all, the quicker a customer can check out, the happier they will be and the quicker you’ll close the sale.

    This is from usabilitypost.com. It’s really a nice read.

    Read it here.
    http://www.usabilitypost.com/2009/04/15/8-characteristics-of-successful-user-interfaces/

    There is a lot of information out there about various interface design techniques and patterns you can use when crafting your user interfaces and websites, solutions to common problems and general usability recommendations. Following guidelines from experts will likely lead you towards creating a good user interface — but what exactly is a good interface? What are the characteristics of an effective user interface?

    Here are 8 things I consider a good user interface needs to be:

    1. Clear
    2. Concise
    3. Familiar
    4. Responsive
    5. Consistent
    6. Attractive
    7. Efficient
    8. Forgiving

    Today’s read: Flash or SilverLight 

    I’ve worked on flash, but not anytime recent. I started with Flash 3. I think Flash is one of the coolest things to work on if you are slightly strong in the creative part of life. I read an article in Smashing Magazine on Flash vs SilverLight.

    I never worked on SilverLight and I still doubt it’s reach and appeal with developers and designers. One nice part of it is the tight coupling with .net framework thus making it easy for the developers.

    You can read the article here.
