Building a working product takes engineering talent.
Making it look and feel nice takes an aesthetic sense and an eye for detail. Many people hear “User Experience” and focus on UI design. While small bugs can hurt a brand and small delights can help it, they don’t determine whether the user is successful or frustrated.
To make the product truly pleasant to use takes empathy and a deep understanding of the users. User experience work starts well before the code hits version control and lasts well past delivering working software to production. Yet if you’re willing to dedicate the time and energy, you’ll come away with a product your team is proud of and your customers love.
