Every day, I share on Twitter and LinkedIn a list of curated articles I read, resources and tools about UX Design, User Research, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, some process, some inspiration, etc. This is an archive of everything I shared this week.
CSS Container Queries For Designers by @shadeed9, a nice overview of all the awesome things designers will be able to achieve with this. I can’t wait, for the moment we rely on JS to do this kind of adaptation, and it’s a little bit of a performance issue

“Don’t use custom CSS mouse cursors” by @ericwbailey, yes to all of this, I really don’t understand why we brought this trend back but it is quite annoying and has a lot of damage potential when it comes to accessibility
Design is free : analysis on how icons fonts & even software are becoming a digital commodity how cost reduction via automation tools & reorganization brings costs of tactical design down (almost free). What’s left? The Strategic parts!
“Overcoming UX Misdirection” by Darren Hood, a good quick read on how UX is not UI or Design thinking and other misconceptions about our job and what UX Design actually is
NPS is The Worst (via @Wisounet), a collection of articles that explains what is wrong with NPS and some alternatives
yourweek.app I’m always bad at those productivity apps but I like the “this week / later” concept here so I might give this one a try. I already have paper cards like that on my desk and they tend to work nicely ^^
Hum, I think Around nailed what annoys and distracts me in calls: stressful backgrounds but mostly noise background. It’s next to impossible for me to concentrate when people have background noise and poor audio. I need to give that a try! (update: I gave it a try and loved it ^^)
