“What UX Designers Can Learn from Video Games’ Obsession with UI”
The personalisation part is interesting, I play a moba on tablett & phone and I don’t want the menu options to be in the same place because I don’t hold them the same way, I can change them
- 5 UX Tips to Master the App Onboarding
- Bad Habits of UI/UX Designers – From creating imaginary users to forgetting about budgets, the design process has some flaws
- UX in the Age of Personalization – who to propose a personalized experience that won’t fail the users
- Quick! What’s the Difference Between Flexbox and Grid?
- Using CSS Grid the right way – “Don’t use a grid system” approach suits me, more and more I ditch the 12 column grid to design in a more “flexibility in the browser” way, fixed margins, fluid containers (% or fr) dividing space instead of placing on a grid
“The curse of the reply guy on Twitter“, yes, yes yes, creepy as hell. Also the fear of blocking them because then they come and complain on LinkedIn or emails is so familiar 🙁
- HTML, CSS and our vanishing industry entry points, if we make it so that you have to understand programming to even start, then we take something open and enabling, and place it back in the hands of those who are already privileged. true.
- “Guide to Web Authentication“, nicely written and illustrated, easy to read.
- An Introduction To WebBluetooth , Website, web apps and PWAs being able to connect to bluetooth might look trivial to some of you, like, okay, who wants to connect a smart lights bulbes to a browser, we have apps for that. BUT We’re currently seeing a big shift, from heavy native clients to software as a service (SaaS) models in a lot of industries. The browser (and the cloud) are becoming the platform. I believe there’s a huge potentiel for WebBluetooth for enterprise IoT.
Agile Sprints vs. Design Sprints – when to use a design sprint and the concept of “code sprint”, never heard of this, it’s a smart idea to reconciliate every part of the process
