Présentation de l'éditeur

Most discussion about Web design seems to focus on the creative process, yet turning concept into reality requires a strong set of deliverables—the documentation (concept model, site maps, usability reports, and more) that serves as the primary communication tool between designers and customers. Here at last is a guide devoted to just that topic. Combining quick tips for improving deliverables with in-depth discussions of presentation and risk mitigation techniques, authorDan Brown shows you how to make the documentation you're required to provide into the most efficient communications tool possible. He begins with an introductory section about deliverables and their place in the overall process, and then delves into to the different types of deliverables. From usability reports to project plans, content maps, flow charts, wireframes, site maps, and more, each chapter includes a contents checklist, presentation strategy, maintenance strategy, a description of the development process and the deliverable's impact on the project, and more.

Format: Broché
Sur internet on trouve essentiellement des articles qui traite de problématique fonctionnelles de façon parcellaire et les livres techniques sont souvent trop techniques et détaillées sans fournir d'approche didactique...

Je cherchais donc un livre qui présente davantage des outils de support méthodologique notamment concernant les document de travail qui servent à communiquer entre différents métiers oeuvrant sur un projet, en particulier projet web pour sa partie front office.

C'est exactement ce que j'ai trouvé dans ce livre, dont la force est de présenter une approche systématique et incrémentale.

En effet, les différents thèmes abordés y sont représentés via différents documents dont l'auteur présente systématiquement son intérêt général et son audience, puis sa constitution en 3 niveaux de détails qui permettent d'adapter le document à ses propres contraintes.

J'avais acheté ce livre après avoir lu le drolissime et génial ' The inmates are running the asylum" , qui présentait les erreurs communément commises en développement d'applis informatiques. Mais ce livre est beaucoup plus difficile d'accès. Il est vraiment scientifique dans son approche et ne se lit que comme un outil de travail du coup plus que comme un outil de sensibilisation. Destiné aux équipes d'ergonomie sur des gros projets, oui,pas à l'individu souhaitant se sensibiliser aux bonnes méthodes de design d'interfaces homme/femme(!)-machine.

For people who work in large web teams 6 novembre 2007
Par antenna - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you work in a large team in a big corporation, and use conventional rather than agile approaches to web development, you may find this book very useful. It has advice not just on what tools to employ, when, and why, but also how to interact with clients and specialists in various roles during every stage of website genesis/ontogeny, from strategy to execution (via usability tests, concept mapping, wireframes and much more).

As a one-person band with a very small budget, I found big chunks of it rather idealistic, somehow old-fashioned, and not very relevant to my own circumstances. The usability / market research specialist? The information architect? Those would be me. The programmer? The graphic designer? Oh, those would be me too. And the person making sure that the words and images are suitable for the web as a medium? Me again.

I wanted some advice on best practice for (a) documenting decisions made (and reasons for making them) and (b) highlighting consequences of those decisions (and reasons) for future work. I was quite surprised not to see much discussion about how to document (b), which in my experience is often a huge hole in documentation.

Also, the processes I use are much more agile than those described in the book, which doesn't cover how to document development using agile methods. This is a shame, because I think more and more developers are moving in this direction.

Buyer beware - companion website does not have promised resources 2 juin 2008
Par S. Harrison - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Part of the value of this book is the promise that the author will provide templates and examples. This promise is worth zero. If you go to the companion website, there is a note from the author that says, essentially, "Ooops, so sorry. Got too busy." Just a tad unprofessional? I guess different people have different perspectives on such things.

Call me crazy, but one would think that the author would have had a whole stack of examples and templates BEFORE he wrote the book. How else would he know what documents are needed? Just a rhetorical question.....

The book itself is useful, don't get me wrong. I am just very disappointed in the lack of companion material. Other reviews very adequately cover the content.

In terms of practical help, AND downloadable templates, I vastly prefer Web ReDesign 2.0: Workflow that Works (2nd Edition) by Kelly Goto.

Kelly Goto's advice saved my tail when I was a newbie in the field (waaaaay back in the dark ages of the 20th century), and still has relevance for me today.

Web ReDesign 2.0: Workflow that Works (2nd Edition) (VOICES)


UPDATE: August 2008: nothing has changed on the companion website, [...] Quite frankly, it looks like it has been abandoned.

UPDATE: February 4, 2010: The author finally has updated the site. However, as of this date, there are still no templates or other downloads as far as I can tell. Looks like the author has turned it into a blog. You might want to check it out and see if any progress has been made. Since Amazon won't allow a web address to appear in a review, you can figure it out from the title of the book.

The meta-web development communication book 3 décembre 2006
Par Manny Hernandez - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Dan Brown did it. I never imagined someone would pull it off, but he came up with a meta-web development communication book, a book about the process of putting together user needs, strategy and web design documents. In these three categories, he covers the ten web site communication deliverables he considers to be of most value, taking the reader through a structure that will help in the process of conception, construction, presentation to others and context.

I found the concept of Personas he introduced very interesting (and innovative in the web development space) and later picked up a book that specialized on the topic ("The User Is Always Right" by Steve Mulder and Ziv Yaar) to learn more about it. In terms of the rest of the concepts he introduced, if you are a seasoned web producer/development specialist, you may not find most of them to be new, but seeing the whole package in front of you will be useful and refresh items you know to be of importance. If you are becoming acquainted with this area, the book will become a permanent reference you will want to take with you at all times along with "Web Project Management: Delivering Successful Commercial Web Sites" by Ashley Friedlein.

What a relief 24 mai 2007
Par Nancy L. Willoughby - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As soon as I picked up this book, I breathed a huge sigh of relief. I've been working with wireframes for many years, and creating them for a couple of years, but it's my experience that everyone does them differently, and so I gratefully welcome an overview of the basics.

I almost don't dare to write this next thing, so unbelieving am I at my good luck, but here are all the documents he covers, filling in holes in my knowledge base:

1. Personas

2. Usability test plans

3. Usability reports

4. Competitive analysis

5. Concept models

6. Content inventories

7. Site maps

8. Flow charts

9. Wireframes

10. Screen designs

As he says in his preface, it's a how-to book. It's a cookbook. It's for people who make the docs, people who use the docs, and people who review the docs.

I'm really excited. Methodology is great, but what a joy it is to just get some basic templates!

Practical, comprehensive advice for creating and presenting documentation 11 octobre 2006
Par Benjamin Charboneau - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you're a nerd like me, then you feel giddy when someone publishes a cool nerdbook. I have stayed up late reading this book and and filled the margins with notes and stars. Brown gives simple, applicable advice about creating and presenting Web deliverables.

I am impressed with his comprehensive coverage of the entire life of each deliverable and with how he shapes content into the book's practical structure. Brown writes clearly and concisely, and he crafts his content with solid writing patterns that make the book easy to understand and easy to use. He's as thoughtful about the use of the book as he is about the use of his Web documentation.

Brown groups the deliverables into user needs documents, strategy documents, and design documents. Each deliverable is its own independent chapter. Each chapter covers creating the deliverable, presenting it, how to use it in a project, and how it fits with other documents. He prioritizes the deliverable's content so you know which information is most essential. For each deliverable, Brown writes about the challenges one will face when creating the document and presenting it. For example, he writes about how to structure meetings to prepare for and solve common meeting challenges.

This book has helped me because I'm relatively new to Web documentation, but I'm sure veterans will find it useful, too. I highly recommended it.
