  • submit to reddit

Adrian Pomilio says UI design should start with a pencil and paper.  Storyboarding should be your way of gathering requirements.  It's also important to make sure that front-end developers and server-side programmers are have a focused task for their end of the applications.  A server-side developer shouldn't have to learn jQuery.  They also need to have a clear framework for the UI logic so that they're not building things that the customer doesn't want.

Adrian Pomilio is a UI designer at Railinc who's been building web applications since 1997.  In the past three years his focus has been on the Flash Platform.  Along with Flex, Adrian has also reached a high level of expertise in Air, CSS, Javascript, various server side languages, data modeling, GIS,  and various technologies.
