User Centered Development with GeneXus 15

Official Content

Providing the best possible User experience is one of the main pieces of the puzzle when developing software. That’s why we focused on improving both the GeneXus users’ experience and the UX for users of the apps created with it. This is why we worked a lot improving the GeneXus IDE and the way its users work while creating applications, as well as how default applications look in GeneXus at the end of the process.

Developer Experience: Improved GeneXus IDE

The IDE that has been improved (you'll notice a new look & feel) and fine-tuned for HDPI, to look great at any monitor and so be ready for being at your front for your journey developing great solutions with GeneXus. But the emphasis on Developer Experience doesn't end with a nice look; it goes beyond that. Text editors and Layout Editors have been improved a lot, especially the Abstract Layout Editors for developing Responsive Web Applications and Smart Devices Applications. Just to mention, you can now edit the Theme classes while you edit the Control Properties.
