A Unified Documentation Experience
4 hardware platforms, 2 programming languages, 220,000+ pages of content, a 10 year old design, 20 million users.
As lead UX designer, I redesigned the learning materials Apple Developer’s depend on.
Principles for Design
Based on interviews and contextual inquires, I developed the following user-centered principles for design:
Fast, easy access to content
Clarity of context
Design an Ecosystem
Respect developer’s workflow
Inspire through design
Goal: Combine 4 sites into one Index
Goal: In combining 4 platform sites into one, it was important to create content clarity by developing a template with appropriate hierarchy and a clear categorization system.
Goal: Design for the way developers actually work.
A huge insight in my user research was that developers never want to leave the keyboard. They command+f to find everything and our expanding/collapsing content was hiding answers.
