030 – Alan Cooper

We were lucky to catch software legend Alan Cooper on his visit to Amsterdam and talk with him at length about design and programming. Alan tells about how he created products like the first incarnation of Visual Basic, and we discuss some fundamentals of interaction design. We also talk about how design fits into the software development process.

Follow Alan via his twitter handle @MRAlanCooper and through tumblr.

This interview was recorded on the 27th of april 2012 at the rehearsal theater of Hettoneelspeelt in Amsterdam.
