UIBPWG UI Walkthrough
Q: What is a user interface walkthrough?
A: Well, it is pretty much what you want it to be, as long it involves the user interface or user experience of your project. The format is about a 30 minute presentation followed by discussion and brain-storming with the cross-section of developers and user interface designers that make up the working group.
Q: How do I participate?
A: You can sign up by going to the UIBPWG wiki and adding yourself to the agenda of your desired week. (Just edit the wiki page User_Interface_Best_Practices_Working_Group#Meetings Give a one or two liner about the topic. You can also send an email to the UIBPWG mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org). Or you can join one of our conference and talk to us about doing a UI walkthrough.
Q: How do I prepare for the walkthrough?
A: Again, that's up to you. It can be as simple as a screenshot, you can post a wiki page (eg. 09052007Notifications) or we'll even host a WebEx for you and you can do a live demo.
If you want to be even more involved, the User Interface Best Practices Working Group is open to all Eclipse members. If you have a passion for UI and user experience and want to help improve the Eclipse experience, attend the conference calls and join us!
