Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Optimization priorities, part of Mapping the Modern Web Design Process.
- With the tests and revisions complete, the site can be said to have passed the beta testing stage and we are ready to start refining, designing code, and user experience to ensure the best possible informational user experience for the end user. This is all done in the Optimization Phase, which just like the Build Phases, has three tracks: content, design, and development. In the Optimization Phase, all teams should have the same three priorities in mind in this order.
First, user experience, accessibility, "(mumbles)" time, functionality, ease of use, and so on. Second, share-ability, and third, find-ability. In this chapter, we'll look at each of these three priorities in detail and also look at how to analyze the user activity on the site.
