User Experience

User Experience (UX) Design describes the experience a person has as a result of their interactions with a particular product or service. It encompasses all aspects of the end-user’s experience and goes way beyond giving customers what they say they want, or providing them with checklist features.

Achieving a great user experience means taking into account a multitude of areas such as information architecture, usability, accessibility, functionality, content and the user interface.

This rundown of some of the best resources available both online and offline should offer some guidance in achieving User Experience nirvana.
