Yesterday I did a talk on Interface Design for Developers at the March Dunedin Codecraft meetup.
I covered five main design principles, Planning, Consistency, Affordance, Sane Defaults, and Focusing on the user. I also talked briefly about things like user personas, accessibility, wireframing, icons, and application personality.
Unfortunately the talk wasn't recorded, but the slides are now up at the following link for anyone interested: http://bit.ly/ynROLU
I will hopefully be presenting this talk later in the year at KiwiPyCon 2012, and maybe at Linux.conf.au 2013 next year if my submission is accepted.
