Hardware and Software developers work on a rapidly changing environment and depend on quickly ramping up on new technologies to deliver the products that will simplify our lives in the future. These new technologies are complex and so is the information developers need to process to be able to use them. In this talk, you’ll see how knowledge of human cognitive architecture and the cognitive load theory can guide the design of technical content that goes beyond product documentation and helps make sense of complexity and build professional skills.
Key takeaways from the session:
Attendees will gain high level knowledge of the human cognitive architecture and the cognitive load theory, and will walk away with a set of practical design principles that can be applied to the organization and design of complex and technical content.
