There is still two more weeks to the next Inland Empire .NET UG meeting, which will be on October 13th, 2009. This month’s speaker is Jason Campbell, UX Evangelist for Microsoft for the Southwest based out of Los Angeles. His presentation is going to be about “Rich Internet Applications with WPF and Silverlight”. I find the intro on the IEDOTNETUG site extremely promising; it simply states that the talk will outline the paradigm shift of the role of the developer from plain coder to a designer/developer. Basically Developer + designer = devigner.
I’m looking forward to the meeting; since I have been trying to polish my developer identity with design skills for some time now, through design classes, experimental UI work and acting as a co-founder for Devign34.
A transformation is never easy; daily self-motivation is needed along the way; but I’m determined to summarize my UX down this road as “Per aspera ad astra” – Through difficulties to the stars ★★★
