What I do: PORTFOLIO

Portfolio

My proposal for a usability logo

Border areas is where interesting things happen; so I work on both:

  • the interaction between humans and computers, performing, analyzing and reporting multiple techniques of usability and UCD, either as an external consultant as well as a member of a development team;
  • the integration of research tasks into professional projects, publishing some of my work through papers, courses, speeches, blogs, etc.

Meanwhile, I’ve been developing other skills: languages (HTML, CSS, PHP, Python, …); CMS like Drupal, Joomla, WordPress, Sitecore, …; SEO techniques; web analytics; Windows 8; etc.

Most of my work was confidential, but here you are some samples

Front-end

Implementation of different designs for HULT using HTML, CSS and JavaScript; and integration into their CMS (Sitecore) using XSLT and .NET technologies.

HULT News

Web development

Entire life-cycle of some web sites, using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, customization of CMS (Joomla!; Drupal; Sitecore; …), SEO, web analytics, etc.
This personal website itself has been fully implemented by me using WordPress and responsive web design.

Other developments (Windows 8)

I try to keep my role as a developer in different environments; for example, I won a Windows 8 Summer Camp with ‘Menéame’, an application for Windows 8.

Usability user testing

Usability evaluations

Examples of quick informal usability evaluations published on my blog:

UCDmanager

My personal project UCDmanager is a web application aimed to manage and document User-Centered Design and usability techniques, in an integrated manner: user roles, personas, heuristic evaluations, usability user testing, etc… Fully developed and maintaned by me using Drupal.

Research & dissemination

UX Magazine published my article about a proposal for a set of psychological usability heuristics, which includes a spreadsheet to apply them on real evaluations.

The Spanish magazine “No Solo Usabilidad” published my article about the real meaning of User-Centered Design: En busca del Diseño Centrado en el Usuario, which also includes a proposal, this time for a more practical definition of UCD.

Some other proposals published on my blog trying to achieve better usability and UCD techniques:

Web accessibility

I’ve done several reports in order to evaluate the accessibility conformance of several websites; some of them became part of public talks I gave, like this one about the accessibility of three websites belonging to government agencies.
