Abstract

Patterns languages pattern languages for interaction design have been an active research field in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. However, only few researchers have explored the impact of pattern languages in real application domains. This work reports a field study on acceptance and adoption of pattern languages by development teams in industry. Our results show that pattern languages should take into account the idiosyncrasies of the application domain and results show that pattern languages can be a great leverage to improve usability culture in industry.
