This week’s selection: data table design, PWAs on desktop, animation tips, Sketch vs iOS rendering, interruption in workspace, design thinking explained,NPL and voice / conversational interfaces, print design advice, faux bold detector, learning to say “I don’t know (yet)”,  Sketch library vs design system, CSS tutorials.

I wrote an article and had a conference video published this week

#Table Essential resources to design complex data tables, my current list of resources when I need to design complex tables with a lot of data, interactions, etc.
