Complexity vs. Usability in Desktop Software

This talk, held in the "Interactive Systems" course, has been about complexity and usability in software. Specifically, I've talked about how requirements for functionality and complexity have changed and how they have influenced usability concerns. Additionally I showcased several methods and ideas for software developers and UI designers to constructively deal with increasing complexity and still keep the software usable and enjoyable.
