Death by a thousand paper cuts — User Experience and complexity

All non-trivial software inevitably grows in complexity over time. Regardless of best intentions, with continuous releases of new functionality, design debt threatens to cripple our applications: they become confusing and increasingly hard to understand and use. Alexandra will share lessons learnt and make suggestions on how to avoid overcomplicating our UIs as our applications grow.


Alexandra spent 10 years living big drama on opera stages before making her way into KDE and launching her tech career as community manager for Qt in Oslo. She is the founder and co-organiser of the Rails Girls chapter in Oslo, and a proud Web Rebel. She is currently responsible for product and design at Ardoq, a SaaS-solution for enterprise architecture and structured documentation.
