When we talk about wireframes, mock-ups, and prototypes, we are talking about graphical representations of software - how a system will look to end-users - and, in the case of the prototype, how it will work, too. This is generally in the form of an app (whether web, mobile, or desktop), although you might get clever with things like IoT and smart watch displays, too.
UI design is a constantly evolving field. What was hot over the last few years may now be out of favour. Just as home interior decorating trends change, so too do the UI design trends of software, web apps, apps, and websites. If you’re developing and want an amazing user interface that really resonates with your users in 2020, then look no further than these emerging design trends.
When building a new digital product or updating current systems, be it a website or an app, you want to ensure that your product is something that your users actually want to use – not a painful experience.

Whether it’s internal software within your organisation, an app you’ve developed for Android, or even an interactive website, every piece of software that requires user interaction can benefit from user centred design.
Fixed price contracts can be rather tricky in a Scrum environment. Classic software development and Agile software development are very different from one another, and things that work in one environment don’t necessarily work in another.
