What's User Interface?
The user interface (UI), in the industrial design field of human–computer interaction, is the space where interactions between humans and machines occur. Generally, the goal of user interface design is to produce a user interface which makes it easy (self-explanatory), efficient, and enjoyable (user-friendly) to operate a machine in the way which produces the desired result. This generally means that the operator needs to provide minimal input to achieve the desired output, and also that the machine minimizes undesired outputs to the human.
What's User Experience?
User experience design (UX, UXD, UED or XD) is the process of enhancing user satisfaction with a product by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction with the product. User experience design encompasses traditional human–computer interaction (HCI) design, and extends it by addressing all aspects of a product or service as perceived by users.
Any product without implementing principles of both UI and UX cannot be a success.
Designers, developers and even managers need to know the principles of UI/UX design in order to make a product go well with the users and ultimately a success.
The average salary of a good UX/UI Professional in India is about 8 LPA.
