Mark HatchWelcome to ICS' January Newsletter

Want to build great products quickly? If so, this issue is for you! It’s jam-packed with info on the user experience in product development, including blogs on best practices and usability testing, a workshop on the business of UX, and a new course on UX design for software developers. You’ll also find an article from me about the benefits of a pipelining approach to product development — an approach that greatly speeds the process by allowing UX and development to occur simultaneously.

Also included this month are details for registering for tomorrow’s don’t-miss live Yocto webinar, which presents an excellent introduction to the framework, and details on Qt, OpenGL and Raspberry Pi training opportunities. You’ll also find Part 7 of our Developer’s Bag of Tricks series, which explores at simulators and emulators.

Happy reading!
