pp. 73-80

Many studies have analyzed general software development practices and how organizations can better support them. However, literature that qualitatively studies user-interface-related work practices in software development is relatively rare. Supporting workstyle transitions in UI practices is nonetheless important. A survey of 370 practitioners about their workstyles and tool use offers concrete examples of design tools that support the most important workstyle transitions. The survey also resulted in recommendations for making design tools more human-centric and appealing to practitioners interested in the UI aspects of software development.
