CEUX, Sept 3 Chat Notes + Wireframes

This week’s chat was uneventful — not a lot of progress this week as people continue to work on wireframes.

This morning, I touched base with @jenmylo to get her feedback on some wireframes I’ve been working on. She had a lot of great UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it., usability and accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) feedback that’ll help shape how we move forward with this project. She plans on typing up her notes and posting them here when she has a chance.

One thing we quickly figured out was wireframes are a really bad method for communicating interaction. She suggested I join forces with a developer skilled in jquery to quickly prototype our ideas instead of trying to wireframe them moving forward. Any jquery-savvy developers interest in pairing up? Otherwise, I’ll look into storyboarding as a method for communicating interactions.

If anyone else has worked on some wireframes, this would be a great place to post them.

Next chat will take place next Tuesday, 17:00 UTC in #wordpress-ui, but please feel free to post and comment here if you have ideas or questions.
