API usability peer reviews

Umer Farooq, Leon Welicki, Dieter Zirkler
2010 Proceedings of the 28th international conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '10  
We discuss how API usability peer reviews can be used in conjunction with API usability tests to increase usability coverage on APIs.  ...  Based on a comparison of usability defects identified between API usability peer reviews and API usability tests, API usability tests were found to expose design issues related to actually using an API  ...  API usability peer reviews reflect the adage -"Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand" -to scale the method at an organizational level.  ...

Methods towards API Usability: A Structural Analysis of Usability Problem Categories [chapter]

Thomas Grill, Ondrej Polacek, Manfred Tscheligi
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The resulting problem areas allow us to develop a first classification of API related usability problems that are making the relevancy of usability issues for APIs more explicit and applicable.  ...  Research in the area of human computer interaction (HCI) currently mainly focuses on end-user usability and only little research has been done regarding the usability of APIs.  ...  An effective method for API usability testing is called API Usability Peer Reviews published by Farooq et al. [3] .  ...

Assessing The Usability Of Gaze-Adapted Interface Against Conventional Eye-Based Input Emulation

Chandan Kumar, Raphael Menges, Steffen Staab
2017 Zenodo  
In this work, we evaluate these two approaches to assess their impact in usability.  ...  System Usability Scale (SUS) questionnaire [18] has been used to measure the usability of applications.  ...  For this, the user has to activate communication over this REST API 10 , which is included in our application at first successful login 11 . The API follows the OAuth 12 protocol.  ...

Using concept maps to evaluate the usability of APIs

Jens Gerken, Hans-Christian Jetter, Harald Reiterer
2010 Proceedings of the 28th of the international conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '10  
In this paper we present a longitudinal approach using concept maps and a question diary to make this interaction visible and study the usability of an API over time.  ...  However standard usability evaluation methods as known from HCI have limitations in grasping the interaction between developer and API -the GUI, which makes this interaction obvious, is missing.  ...  First regarding the concept map approach, we asked our participants not only to place and link concepts but also to rate them on a rating scale from 1 "I don't like this concept at all" to 7 "I really  ...

On the Usability of High-Level Parallel IO in Unstructured Grid Simulations [chapter]

Dries Kimpe, Stefan Vandewalle, Stefaan Poedts
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For this poster, the usability of the two most common IO libraries for parallel IO was evaluated, and compared against a pure MPI-IO implementation.  ...  Instead of solely focusing on the raw transfer bandwidth achieved, API issues such as data preparation and call overhead were also taken into consideration.  ...  Parallel IO is of vital importance in large scale parallel applications.  ...

Issues of usability in hypermedia systems

Nikos Tsirakis, Nikos Karousos, George Gkotsis
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 symposia on Metainformatics - MIS '05  
An analysis of the usability issue from a developer's perspective is carried out. Moreover, targeting at a usability estimation technique, a questionnaire for OHSs designers is being proposed.  ...  This paper argues that usability is a critical attribute that should be taken into consideration during the development process of an Open Hypermedia System (OHS).  ...  Nowadays, designers perceive usability engineering as a critical part of engineering. Usability engineering methods can help to support usability measures at low cost [13] .  ...
