Developing User Interfaces (Interactive Technologies) by Dan R. Olsen

By Dan R. Olsen

In the early days of computing, technicians in white coats managed refrigerator-sized desktops housed in sealed rooms, faraway from usual clients. at the present time, desktops are reasonably cheap commodities, like tv sets,
and usual humans regulate and have interaction with them. This new paradigm has ended in a burgeoning call for for graphics-intensive and hugely interactive interfaces.

Developing person Interfaces is focused on the programmer who will really enforce, instead of layout, the person interface. such a lot person interface books specialize in psychology and value, now not programming ideas. This booklet acknowledges the necessity for programmers to collaborate with usability specialists and psychologists, so subject matters corresponding to the rules of visualization, human conception, and usefulness overview are touched upon. but the first concentration is still on these instruments and methods required for programming the complicated consumer interface.

* makes a speciality of complex programming topics

* occasion handling
* interplay with geometric objects
* widget instrument kits
* enter syntax

* valuable to programmers utilizing any language—no specific windowing process or instrument equipment is presumed, examples are drawn from quite a few advertisement structures, and code examples are provided in pseudo code

* the elemental recommendations of conventional special effects similar to drawing and three-d modeling are coated for readers with no special effects background.
