Good one actually whats so great about is that its not telling about a lot of complicated details in html5 its just the simple like the header and footer which will help us eventually save lines of codes and will help us save on our research as well

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, September 6, 2013 1:55 PM

Last week we featured 1937′s The Tale of the Fox, the crowning glory of inventive Russian filmmaker Ladislas Starevich’s work in puppet animation. But he didn’t always shoot puppets as we know them; at the dawn of his career — and thus the dawn of Russian animation — he had to make use of what lay close at hand. Today we go back a couple decades further, to the time when Starevich (then known, before his immigration to Paris, as Władysław Starewicz) worked not as an animator but as the director of Kovno, Lithuania’s Museum of Natural History.

Which Comes First: Functional or Usability Testing?

Which Comes First: Functional or Usability Testing? | Multimedia design | Scoop.it

Marisa Chiulli's curator insight, February 22, 2013 9:59 AM

To be clear, this post is not about whether functional testing is more important than usability testing, or vice versa. That’s like asking your parents whether they love you or your brother more; there’s no right answer. The better debate, in my opinion, is about which one should come first and why. And while some may throw the chicken and the egg debate into the argument, or argue that functional testing is the starting point of developing good software, I hope to convince you that usability testing should always come first.

 

To play devil’s advocate for a moment, I agree that you cannot ‘fully test’ usability without partially-written code that invokes user feedback. Using this argument of developing bits and pieces of the app first, you would then need to test its functionality prior to its usability and user experience – that makes sense. However, let’s borrow an analogy from the world of construction for a minute. Do construction workers lay out a building’s foundation before referencing a set of blueprints and guidelines? And do building blueprints stem from the whim of an architect? The answer to both is a resounding no.

 

So how does this analogy relate to testing? Well, just as specs are typically developed before a single line of code is written, usability testing should begin well before specs are developed – typically in the requirements-gathering phase of your SDLC. This type of usability testing, however, may not be what comes to mind when you first think of usability testing. Instead of interacting with a complete or partially-developed app, usability testing at this level can begin with digital or pen and paper wire-framing. It can also begin with A/B mockups and intended workflows that can be test-driven by a set of end users. Inputs from your users at this point in the SDLC can better inform where to even begin with design and workflows of your app. In other words, move your usability testing further upstream to minimize potential reworking of code downstream. This enables you to minimize time spent on reworking design and code, or even worse, sticking with poor usability because of time and cost constraints.
