Step-by-Step Web App Design










1. Understanding Requirements

This chapter will go into great detail about some of the misconceptions surrounding 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


2. 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 the scope of:

  • The delivery model of your web application
  • Support for mobile devices
  • Integrations with other applications
  • Tasks to support in your web application and
  • Features to include in your web application


3. High-Level Design

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
  • The conceptual model of your web application


4. Detailed Design

In this chapter, you will learn how you can take all the learning from the previous chapters and put it in action to design the user interface and 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.


5. 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
  • Navigation
  • Search and
  • Tables

There will be some other chapters too, but this will be 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, I will show you how you can apply the design principles that you are learning in each lesson to design the Ticket Booking web application.
