Jordan Watson (We Know Data)

Session Description

Do your custom apps meet the UI standards of the most popular apps out on the market? When your apps feel like the ones that your customers use on a daily basis, it provides a more intuitive experience and helps your customers to feel at home.


But what is good user experience? How much is about the interface, and how much is about usability?


I aim to change your perception of what a FileMaker experience should be, taking inspiration from the designs of major tech companies who have spent millions on improving user experience.
