Pixels of the Week – March 17, 2019
Every week I share a list of curated articles, resources and tools about UX, UI and mobile design, Front-End development, HTML, CSS and more…
This week’s selection: diversity, being a women in design and tech companies, numerical inputs, user research without analytics, data in the cloud, React and accessibility, mobile UI trends, perceived performance, list of CSS features, better design feedback, resume advice and more.
You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.
I talked at a meetup
This week I talked about perceived performance at the Luxembourg JS meetup: Lightning fast UX: faking performance when there’s no code left to optimize
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
Words are a powerful thing. Why is a women perceived as “aggressive” while a man with the same behavior would be perceived as “persuasive” #BiasCorrect helps you spot your own unconscious bias in everyday conversations, biases that are stopping women from achieving equality at work.
- “You Guys” some interesting thoughts for people who think that “guys” is gender neutral, especially when used in an tech industry.
- Women in Design – Who they are, how they got there and what they’ve learned along the way
- Things they told me to believe as a female designer, so true 🙁
“How to use data in user research when you have no web analytics” a great read on where to find places to get information about users even with a small budget
Accessibility is not a “React Problem”, as always the issue isn’t the tool but what people do with it. You can build accessible pages using React but for that you need to understand the basics of semantic and HTML
- Time and time again, it seems like <input type=”number”> is a good idea, but it almost always isn’t. You can use the `pattern` attribute to trigger numeric keyboards on touchscreens: better numerical inputs for mobile forms
- “Mobile UI: Design Trends Setting the Tone for 2019” AR, AI, animations, gestures and more. (I like the fact that the article not only lists the trends but gives you extra links to help you get started)
- “HTML, CSS and JS in an ADD, OCD, Bi-Polar, Dyslexic and Autistic World” really interesting to see how other people learn and work, thanks for sharing all of this with a lot of honesty 🙂
- Lesser-known CSS properties explained in GIFs
“Yes, I’m judging your resume design” ok bold title but a lot of good advice to optimise your resume. And yes, Don’t Use Charts. It won’t tell people a thing about your skills it’s just eyecandy
‘People think that data is in the cloud, but it’s not. It’s in the ocean.’ an amazing article
