Every week I share a list of curated articles, resources and tools about UX, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, process inspiration and more…
This week’s selection: bringing back XP style in CSS, CSS Grid Calendar, designing interfaces for expert users, user research synthesis, accessibility of conference calls, accessibility of dataviz, of images, animations and accessibility, text for proofing fonts, CSS Grid tutorial, Microsoft’s Fluent UI design system, on splitting form inputs, words created by machine learning, CSS no comma color functions, etc.
“Using Trello for User Research Synthesis” interesting if you want to gain time in synthesis & kind of already know the main directions it will go when you start the research. I feel more comfortable writing on paper but it might work for you
“Ten things to improve conference call accessibility” Watching for background noise is a really good point in my case, my low attentions span gets lower on video conferences. I left a webinar because the host had a wind pipe behind him and I could not concentrate on anything he was saying. I’m hyper sensitive to noise and background repeating noise is that worse. May I add “be careful with things that move behind you” like fans? Again, people with short attention span might have issues concentrate if something is moving every 2 secs, a little bit like automatic sliders on a website haha (but they could hide your video while muting the person who presents with the wind pipe noise is more complicated)
“ No-Comma Color Functions in CSS ” I like this idea because I tend to forget some of those commas but the /50 % at the end takes some getting used to but you can also still use the old 0.5 syntax: rgba(0, 128, 255, 0.5) -> rgb(0 128 255 / 50%) hsla(198, 28%, 50%, 0.5) -> hsl(198deg 28% 50% / 50%)
