This week, Adam and our UX community discussed the following subjects:

  1. Nielsen’s heuristic principles are almost 30 years old – are they still relevant?
  2. Is heuristic evaluation as worthwhile as usability testing? Which is better?
  3. Do you think that the 10 general principles for interaction design are still correct? Is there anything which needs adding or removing?
