Designing Web Applications That People Love To Use Is Easy...
What's difficult is to keep designing them consistently, project, after project, after project.
So how do you keep designing easy-to-use web applications on an ongoing basis? How do you start a design project knowing fully well that you will end up designing an application that meets and exceeds the needs of its users?
In the year 2004, I started designing my first application - A Production Scheduling Application
I still remember the day when my manager told me that we had to design a production scheduling application because our production assembly line was a mess.
There was no plan for what was to be produced on any given day. There was no plan for what was to be produced on a given machine at any given point in time. And neither was there any way to track a part across the production line.
In short, we needed an application that could plan and track each and every part as it moved through the various stages of production.
I stumbled, fumbled, fell over, before finally managing to design an application that was capable enough to schedule work for the entire production line, day in and day out.
Similar story unfolded when I designed my second application and then the third, fourth and so on...
Yet, something changed over the years. Now, I don't fumble, stumble, and fall over again and again. So what's changed?
Introducing: Step-by-Step Web App Design
A Book on How To Consistently Design Web Applications From Concept To Finished UI, One Step At A Time!
Most design books tell you about the general principles of UX and UI design. They talk endlessly about how to design the UX and UI of web applications and how someone else has designed their web application.
This book, on the other hand isn't about UX and UI design alone. It's about how you can practically design your web application one step at a time from concept to finished UI. It's a book that is based on designing web applications step-by-step.
So why the heck is it so important to design web applications Step-by-Step?
Do you know how computers are built? Do you know how mobile phones are built? Or how the furniture in your house is built? Your house, office, pen, pencil, paper, or absolutely anything around you is built?
Each and every thing around you is built by systematically following a pre-defined set of steps.
They are all built Step-by-Step!
That is the reason why all these things get made perfectly each and every time they are made.
Yet, when it comes to designing web applications, we think that each design project is different.
It is true that each design project is different, but the underlying set of steps to design any web application are always the same.
You have to always start with understanding the requirements, then define the scope, then do high-level conceptual design, and then finally do the detailed design.
One Step at a Time! Step-by-Step!
Because if you don't do that, you get caught in the endless cycle of revisions and iterations that no one likes to deal with.
But how do you make sure that you never miss any details during each step of the web application design process? How do you guarantee that every time you follow the steps one after another, your web application design will meet and exceed all the needs of its users?
That is where this book comes in. So let's take a peek inside the book.
What will you learn in this book?
This chapter will go into great detail about some of the misconceptions surrounding the gathering of requirements. It will then show you how you can gather exact requirements by:
- Understanding the problems that the potential users of your web application face
- Understanding your potential users in detail and
- Understanding the tasks your potential users would want to carry out in your web application
Defining the Scope
This chapter will go into details of how you should ideally be defining the scope of your web application. You will learn to define scope for the:
- Delivery model of your web application
- Support for mobile devices
- Integrations with other applications
- Tasks to be supported in your web application and
- Features to be included in your web application
Once the requirements and the scope of the web application are defined, you will then learn to design:
- The user roles that you should include in your web application
- The security architecture of your web application and
- The Conceptual Model of your web application
In this chapter, you will learn how you can take all the learnings from the previous chapters and put them in action to design the actual user interface and the workings of your web application.
You will also learn about the various design documentations that you can use to communicate and document your design ideas.
Design of Common Elements
In this chapter you will learn how you can design some of the common elements of web applications, particularly:
- The Dashboard
- The Forms
- Search and
There are some other chapters too, but this is the meat of the book.
I know that so much of theory can get overwhelming and confusing. So the book is written by taking an example of designing a Ticket Booking web application.
As you progress through the book, you will learn how you can apply the design principles that you are learning in each lesson to design a real Ticket Booking web application.
Yes! You will actually see how a web application gets practically designed from Concept to Finished UI, step-by-step.
You will not be left hanging to guess how to practically apply the design concepts that you learn inside the book.
The entire Ticket Booking web application will be designed each step of the way as you move through the chapters learning about all the design concepts that go into consistently designing web applications that people love to use.

It does not matter how good your web application design is.

This video will show you how you can design a security feature in your web application that is scalable and modular.
2) Premium Bonus #2 - Mistakes to Avoid in Dashboard Design
A Dashboard is the first thing that the users of your web application will see every time they log in to your web application. So making mistakes in designing the dashboards can result in some really annoying feedback from the users of your application. This video will show you how you can avoid the 6 big common mistakes that almost all web application designers make.
