This content is 2 years old. Remember that the following content might be outdated.

Every week I post a lot of my daily readings about Web, UI and UX Design, mobile design, webdesign tools  and useful resources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.

This week’s selection: mobile design and mobile browsers, 8 points grid, psychology, cognitive biases, form validation UX, Progressive Web Apps, cartography, PSD inspection tool in Invision, a lot of HTML and CSS tutorials. There are also some nice Sketch plugins and a tool to design maps based on data in the ressource section.

You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.
