Introduction à l’ergonomie – Talk at Drupal Lyon

December 16, 2011

Hier, j’ai eu l’opportunité d’introduire l’ergonomie à des développeurs et designers Drupal lors d’une réunion Drupal à Lyon. Le point principal de la présentation est de comprendre l’importance de bien connaître pour qui ils conçoivent. Ensuite, j’ai élaboré sur des techniques afin de collecter une mine d’or d’information sur ces utilisateurs.

J’ai décidé de les impliquer en leur demandant d’aller effectuer deux exercices. Le premier étant un test utilisateur sans modération (Chalkmark). Ils devaient cliquer à l’endroit où ils trouveraient la réponse à la tâche. Visualiser les résultats du test utilisateur. Il faut toutefois garder en tête qu’uniquement 8 participants ont complété l’exercice, lorsque nous faisons une vraie recherche pour un produit, il faut au moins 50 réponses.

Le deuxième exercice était un tri de carte afin d’aider à la compréhension de l’architecture d’information d’un site web fictif – LyonCMS.fr. Encore une fois, 8 participants ont complété, normalement, il faudrait minimum 50 réponses. Visualiser les résultats du tri.

Et voici la présentation

  1. Thanks , I have recently been searching for info about this topic for a while and yours is the best I’ve discovered so far. However, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you positive in regards to the source?|What i do not realize is in reality how you’re no longer really much more smartly-preferred than you might be now. You’re very intelligent.

  2. I’ve been evaluating Drupal for a while alhoguth I haven’t had the time to give to the evaluation to get an adequate assesment here is what I like about it so far over Joomla:1. AJAX Support2. Dynamic/flexible templates one of the major problems we’re having with joomla is finding a template that works well independent of the resolution settings on a user’s computer3. Since its compatible with PHP5 it allows for more XML support since PHP5 supports both saxon and simple xml the 2 most prominent XML enginesI’ll comment more on this as I go through the evaluation of drupalMina

  3. What an awesome way to explain this-now I know everything!

  4. Such a deep answer! GD&RVVF

  5. Hi Kevinjohn,First, I’m always up for hviang someone playing Devil’s Advocate! :) But I should note: I’ve actually got another comment held in the moderation queue (too many reference links), in which I compare WordPress and Joomla, with respect to Community Gatherings, Community-Contributed Extensions, Official Support Forums, and Community-Contributed Documentation. I merely left off the StackExchange comparison, and posted a follow-up comment which currently appears rather out of context.Second: the premise primarily entailed not the quality of the help provided by the community, but rather by the relative size of the community. The assertion that WordPress has a small community relative to Joomla or Drupal is prime facie absurd.The relative quality of help provided by each community is another question entirely, and one that I wasn’t really attempting to address. But, to that point:In my experience, finding out answers to simple WP questions is very quick; but rises at an exponential rate as you move from simple to moderate to advanced. In large part due to the input/output of it’s community.That’s actually what prompted me to mention StackExchange. The relative difficulty of a typical WPSE question is considerably more advanced/complex than the typical WPORG support forum question and in my experience, the answers are commensurately advanced and thorough. (Although, I would also counter that the problem with the WPORG support forums isn’t the quality of answers, but rather the quality of the original questions; people simply fail to follow instructions instructions designed to help them get the best-possible answers to their questions. That is, in part, why I believe that WPSE is uniquely designed to help get answers to the more difficult WordPress-related questions.)

  6. While completely agiereng with the premise of that the article is purely to drum up traffic, there’s also some truth in it.Ultimate Caveat: In my experience I’ve rarely been able to put my hand on my heart and recommend/use WordPress for larger projects; in part due to it’s reliance on a small core community (there are of course many other issues).While WordPress has an exceptionally large userbase, my experience is that number is almost always skewed by WordPress.com . Which is not to say it’s not a huge number, it’s just to say that it’s not as big as people make out.The opposite of that though is the central/trusted community (I’m trying to avoid the word core). WordPress has a greater number of fanboys ready to drink the kool aid , and it’s current release cycle is difficult for casual contributors (theme, plug-in, core, forum support) to keep up with.Drupal and Joomla on the other hand have a very different type of community, that on the outside appears to be lacking in some of the basic processes and metrics that the WP community has gotten used to. But when dealing with sites larger than Blogs with some static pages or with large amounts of data-utilisation/complexity actually getting answers to in-depth technical questions is considerably easier with both Drupal and Joomla communities.Much like your plug-in post, it’s less about the numbers and more about the quality/responsiveness of the community. Personally, I find the quality/responsiveness of the WordPress community very high in the centre, but drops very quickly. Drupal and Joomla have a slightly better curve on their community.

  7. Hi there, simply boceme alert to your weblog through Google, and located that it is really informative.I am gonna watch out for brussels. I’ll be grateful in case you continue this in future. Numerous folks will probably be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!
