When a program is designed, the developer must first find out how the desired result can be achieved. Besides just knowing what to do, it is also necessary to know what is possible with the tools at hand. By creating a visual idea, the developer can save time and also control their progress by being able to see what’s possible. Sometimes even a small change in the project needs an entire re-design. If the design is communicated clearly and the feedback is taken seriously, the developer can then get to the next step of the design process and save valuable time. It’s also interesting how even the best programmers can still miss some of the possibilities in creating software, no matter how experienced they are. Visualising ideas with software can be a great way to find the missing details in a complex problem and could be a good entry point to get started.
Photoshop, code, and the power of abstractionWhen a designer wants to create a concept for a website or application, they often start by drawing the design in a software which is similar to Illustrator.
From user stories to guidelines for designBefore software can be developed, the developer needs to find out what the project’s goal is. User stories are a helpful tool to get to know the project’s goal and how it should be achieved. The stories can be used as a foundation for further design decisions and the visualisation of possible solutions. Each project has its own criteria and the right match between the stories and the requirements is extremely important. The stories can also be used to create a wireframe or any kind of user interface. For example, the user stories can be used to create a user interface using a tool such as Atlassian’s JIRA. Another good example is the sample here .
Designing a website which can be viewed on mobile or desktop devices, be it a desktop computer or laptop or a tablet or a smartphone or whatever.In this case we have a certain objective, a certain scope and the implementation is contained in a source code.
Some of the following problems are to highlight the power of visualising ideas by creating code, but in general this type of problem solving is a good way of getting started with programming and therefore also with design. 827ec27edc
