The Hidden Requirements: Exploring Emotions with Placebos
Traditionally, there has been a lack of focus on emotional requirements - the feelings that a system should induce in its users. Why is this important? Because the way we feel about software is important and should be considered!
In this presentation, I support this claim by stressing the value of emotional requirements through relevant facts, opinions, statistics, quotations, examples, and more. Then, I offer a few practical methods to obtain, create, and assess emotional requirements. Finally, I use placebos as lens through which to view software and gain insight into emotional requirements. Join me to for a thoughtful and thorough exploration of The Hidden Requirements!
