From Programmer 97-things
Burk Hufnagel has been creating positive user experiences since 1978 as a Software Architect and Developer. As someone who has spent most of his life designing and crafting software, Burk has made a habit of developing practical solutions for difficult problems. He is a bibliophile, a technophile, and tends to appreciate esoteric subjects.
Burk was one of the contributors to 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know. He spoke at JavaOne 2008 on building better user experiences, and at the International Association of Software Architect's IT Architecture Regional Conference in 2007 and 2009. He also authored a paper for the IASA Skills Library on the not-so-subtle connection between user interface design and user experience.
