<p><b>An engaging, illustrated collection of insights revealing the practices and principles that expert software designers use to create great software.</b></p><p>What makes an expert software designer? It is more than experience or innate ability. Expert software designers have specific habits, learned practices, and observed principles that they apply deliberately during their design work. This book offers sixty-six insights, distilled from years of studying experts at work, that capture what successful software designers actually do to create great software. </p><p>The book presents these insights in a series of two-page illustrated spreads, with the principle and a short explanatory text on one page, and a drawing on the facing page. For example, 鈥淓xperts generate alternatives鈥?is illustrated by the same few balloons turned into a set of very different balloon animals. The text is engaging and accessible; the drawings are thought-provoking and often playful.</p><p>Organized into such categories as 鈥淓xperts reflect,鈥?鈥淓xperts are not afraid,鈥?and 鈥淓xperts break the rules,鈥?the insights range from 鈥淓xperts prefer simple solutions鈥?to 鈥淓xperts see error as opportunity.鈥?Readers learn that 鈥淓xperts involve the user鈥? 鈥淓xperts take inspiration from wherever they can鈥? 鈥淓xperts design throughout the creation of software鈥? and 鈥淓xperts draw the problem as much as they draw the solution.鈥?</p><p>One habit for an aspiring expert software designer to develop would be to read and reread this entertaining but essential little book. The insights described offer a guide for the novice or a reference for the veteran鈥攊n software design or any design profession.</p><p>A companion web site provides an annotated bibliography that compiles key underpinning literature, the opportunity to suggest additional insights, and more.</p>
