FJ van Wingerde Asking FJ for his professional description elicits a laugh. “I have gone through most every title assigned to people who make user interfaces, from UI Engineer to UX Designer to Information Architect, and some completely unrecognizable ones. Sometimes ‘Senior’ or ‘Mobile’ was tacked on in front. It’s always the same problem to solve, though: managing attention and expectations in the space you have. I’ve just settled on Specialist in UX.”
A veteran of Harvard, Nokia, and Disney in the USA, FJ quickly gained notoriety in the London UX community for both his candor, and willingness to take on the stranger jobs. He is currently working for LBi heading up their UX, consults for stealth and public start-ups through his AskTheUXer effort, and bakes French pastry on Sundays. He can’t be with us in Barcelona this year, but happily supports the Fringe Festival with work on this website.
Clickslide ClickSlide’s fresh approach is to automate the process of adding GUI (Graphic User Interface) components to the growing number of APIs or Datasets being made available to developers today. In the current iteration, anyone with an Auth API service can integrate their services into the ClickSlide platform with little effort, using a simple XML formatted language. ClickSlide will be a Graphic Interface for all API services and, with a point-and-click editor, software created on ClickSlide can easily be updated for new services as they are added.
