Positive user experiences at Google

John Zeratsky, senior designer at YouTube, and Matt Shobe, staff user experience designer at Google, gave a talk at Google I/O, the annual web developer conference, on “creating positive user experiences”.

“Good user experience isn’t just about good design. Learn how to create a positive user experience by being fast, open, engaged, surprising, polite, and, well… being yourself. Chock full of examples from the web and beyond, this talk is a practical introduction for developers who are passionate about user experience but may not have a background in design.”
