Do you build dashboards for other people? Creating a dashboard is similar to designing any other product: it starts and ends with the user. In this session, you'll learn simple techniques from User Research and Interaction Design that you can apply at each stage of dashboard development. How effective are your dashboards? Do they invite users to explore answers to their own questions? Do they provide clear affordances for interaction? Do they guide the eye to the most important elements? If not, why? This session will answer these questions and iterate your designs to produce better dashboards for your audience.
