Burk Hufnagel has been creating positive user experiences since 1978 and is a Lead Software Architect at LexisNexis. As someone who has spent most of his life designing and crafting software, Burk has made a habit of developing practical solutions for difficult problems. He is a bibliophile, a technophile, and tends to appreciate esoteric subjects.
Burk was one of the contributors to "97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know." He spoke at JavaOne 2008 on building better user experiences, and at the International Association of Software Architect's IT Architecture Regional Conference 2007 and 2009, as well as authoring a paper for their Skills Library on the not-so-subtle connection between user interface design and user experience.
