UX Design versus UI Development

“One of the more interesting tensions I have observed – since getting into user experience design about five years ago – is the almost sibling-rivalry tension between UX Designers and User Interface (UI) Developers. At the heart of the tension between them is the fact that most UI Developers consider themselves – and sometimes rightfully so – to be UI Designers. The coding part is like Picasso‚Äôs having to understand how to mix paint. It’s not the value they add, just the mechanics of delivering the creative concepts.” (Mike HughesUXmatters)
