Our goal is to have a website that is helpful when designing and developing the user interface of other websites and web apps. We have targeted three distinct audience groups:
- Those who are website design and development professionals,
- Those who are web usability and user experience professionals, and
- Those who are creating their own websites, including bloggers.
These are the primary, secondary and tertiary audiences for this website. The first step in creating the user interface for any website or mobile application is to clearly, and distinctly, identify the target audiences. The better you understand the characteristics of your website or web application users, the better will be your user interface decisions.
We began by trying to identify all of the usability sources currently available on the web that may be useful to user interface developers. This included findingall of the most useful usability tools, identifying the top-selling books on website usability, identifying the sources of good usability research, and finding other information related to the overall user-computer environment.
