Designing and Engineering Time: The Psychology of Time by Steven C. Seow Ph.D.

By Steven C. Seow Ph.D.

One of many reviewers suggestion this publication used to be a gem for knowledgeable programmers, I absolutely disagree. i am an skilled programmer and that i recommended this e-book for a ebook membership at paintings. we're all skilled programmers. yet i didn't locate this e-book that a lot invaluable. i'd relatively have spent the time it took to learn the ebook doing anything else... like studying approximately Face three: The necessities of interplay layout (again).

I most likely discovered or 3 strategies fascinating through the booklet. as a rule i feel it already states the most obvious, makes use of an excessive amount of comparisons and has an excessive amount of pictures (just for the sake of it - with no including value). A MSDN article with say, 20 pages, may were good enough rather than a 191 p ebook. I anticipated to get a few examples from actual existence software program and to get extra perception in software program and the way to address time.

After interpreting the ebook i needed to get the feel of "Hey! we will do even greater software program, now let's pass and do it!" yet as a substitute the ebook left me feeling like I had wasted my time analyzing it from disguise to cover.

When examining Designing and Enginering Time I although that apparently to be a document from a pupil, like a grasp thesis record. while discussing the ebook with a colleague within the ebook membership he acknowledged the very same factor!

The final chapters used to be okay however it remains to be a "Don't love it" from me.

Sample text

Memories of time and timing, just like any other information we can hold in memory, are not impervious to distortion. 5). During the encoding, physical constraints or physiological limitations (for example, short-sightedness) can cause the event to be witnessed inaccurately. During storage, remembered information is susceptible to forgetting (or decay as memory researchers call it) over time as well as other distortions. For the retrieval of remembered information, the work of E. [1] [1] In her classic memory experiment, Loftus showed students a film of an automobile accident and later asked them to estimate the speeds of the cars involved.

1 displays a subset of the scenarios depicted by Miller. 1. 1 Response to complex inquiry in graphic form 2 to 10 MIL-STD 1472 A Department of Defense effort, the MIL-STD 1472F, also known as the Department of Defense Design Criteria Standard: Human Engineering (revision F), is a 219-page document that details guidelines from fine to coarse settings for knobs to the color coding of simple indicator lights. 2. 2. S. Air Force. However, the authors clearly expected the guidelines to be applicable to and applied by teachers, students, human-factor practitioners, researchers, system analysts, and software designers.

An application designed for the presentation of information, for example, should be optimized to launch promptly without tedious and unnecessary steps. An informationretrieval application, such as the one installed in the laptops in police cars, ought to help the police officer get to the relevant and accurate information quickly without the hassle of meaningless dialogs and queries. Bias For a variety of reasons, a user may have little tolerance for a process no matter how optimized it is. Disgruntled office workers who were informed by corporate that a new Web-based Internet application has replaced the current client-based application (which everyone has gotten used to) may naturally be less tolerant of the new implementation—the typical "I hate this new system" reaction.
