I mentioned in a previous blog post that I’m doing one of my favorite sessions at TechEd again this year – Top 10 Design Mistakes Made By Web Developers. I would consider myself a web developer, not so much a web designer. I can make something that doesn’t look bad, but it’s typically doesn’t have the same shine that a good web designer can do.
Top Ten Design Mistakes Made By Web Developers (WEB04-INT)
We’ve all seen those sites where it’s obvious the developer didn’t consult a designer. There’s no user experience flow, the colors clash, you don’t quite know what to do on the site. During this session, we take a look at the top mistakes made by Web developers when they don’t have access to Web designers; and hopefully learn a few techniques for making sure your sites look great!

I feel guilty listing the non-Microsoft sites here because I don’t really want to call anyone out in public, so instead, I’ll share a few of my “favorite” Microsoft sites. If you make it to my TechEd session, I promise to make you laugh or maybe cry…
- http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/cc405106.aspx – too much content on one page, IMPOSSIBLE!
- http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms816327(v=MSDN.10).aspx – try finding content in here, never an easy task!
- http://www.bing.com/ – looking for web master tools? <cough> Computer says, noooo.
What are your favorite sites (either Microsoft or not) that you think think need the help of a good web designer?
