Media: Microsoft's Video Horde of Gurus

A good list of usability videos from Microsoft ...

"One of the more interesting unsung developments last year was the collection that Microsoft made of gurus talking about aspects of usability and development. There are 18 episodes to its series of videos with accompanying features, including the likes of Jakob Nielsen, Steve Krug, George Olson and Lou Rosenfeld, but also some influential but less well known names like Danah Boyd, the social software expert, and Joshua Schachter, founder of del.icio.us.

The full list at DevSource Video is:

Episode 1: Designing Your Applications for Usability: Usability is a collaborative effort, often done by committee. How can developers maximize the effort to make their applications lovable, or at least easy to use? Guru Jakob Nielsen gives his advice on best practices for programmers.

Episode 2: Agility is Everything: Kim Jones from Price Waterhouse discusses the reasons that developers have to embrace all this "agility" stuff, and how it can make their lives easier.

Episode 3: Security Pitalls in SOA and Web Services: Security expert Andrew Nash discusses the evolutionary changes in Web services, the new security risks (including some you haven't thought about), and how the standards committees are addressing the issues with new specifications. But, he cautions, we're just at the beginning."    (Continued via Usability News)    [Usability Resources]
