Welcome to primaryview.org, a site devoted to user-centered design
and construction of UI (user interface) with a special emphasis on OOUI
(object-oriented user interface).
The goal of this site is to provide user interface professionals with
a resource to aid in building useful, useable systems.
This goal is pursued through six inter-related topic areas. The first
four build on the previous topics' content:
- Describing the User
Explores the content of user context, domain, and task descriptions
and presentation requirements. The abstract description of UI design
in support of a UI design pattern language is also discussed.
- UI Methods & Architecture
HCI (human-computer interaction) methods, approaches to usability
assessment, the role of architecture in HCI, and the role of HCI in
software engineering. New Content in Methods!
- UI Patterns
A catalog of presentation, user task, and navigation design patterns.
- UI Style
A generic UI style guide and discussion of style guide customization.
The other two topic areas provide background material relevant to primaryview.org's
- Workshops & Resources
Lists of workshops, related web sites, and HCI and object-technology
Provides an overview of UML concepts and notation from the viewpoint
of user-centered design.
