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. this day, pcs are reasonably cheap commodities, like tv sets,
and usual humans keep an eye on 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 consumer interface books specialize in psychology and usefulness, now not programming strategies. This publication acknowledges the necessity for programmers to collaborate with usability specialists and psychologists, so issues equivalent to the foundations of visualization, human conception, and usefulness review are touched upon. but the first concentration continues to be on these instruments and strategies required for programming the advanced person interface.

* makes a speciality of complicated programming topics

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

* helpful to programmers utilizing any language—no specific windowing procedure or device package is presumed, examples are drawn from various advertisement platforms, and code examples are awarded in pseudo code

* the fundamental strategies of conventional special effects corresponding to drawing and 3-dimensional modeling are lined for readers with no special effects background.
