We have learned tips and tricks to speed up interface loading, rendering, and keeping it fluid. That’s my daily food as a performance engineer, but sometimes I wonder what happens when it’s still not enough? Like a very long server side processing, anything that lasts more than half a second or no connection at all?
Well, we cheat!
I’ve sat next to a UX designer, and we discovered a long series of UI examples that handle long processing times or a lack of connection. In this almost non-technical talk, we will try to be like magicians and keep the user busy, animate properly at the right time, and even lie to our dear users.
We’ll also learn the designer’s language in order to involve them sooner rather than later so they can plan for those waiting times. We’ll show how I integrated these concerns in my client’s specification process.
