This week’s selection: CSS Grid Playground, chatbots, spatial memory in psychology and UX Design, a tool to find CSS values based on the property, some CSS gradient background that you can copy/paste, advice for UX interviews, great packaging, the issues with the video game industry, a beautiful serif font, testing accessibility, CSS clamp() min() and max(), CSS and accessibility, naming conventions, 3D printed bee homes, etc.
” My chatbot is dead Why yours should probably be too“: Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment: when did you actually ever enjoy talking to a chat bot? (..) It turns out that the answer is, at least for most of us, almost never.” YES to killing the chatbots!!
Bee Home: design a bee home and help restore the relationship between people and planet” a nice project that lets you create and download the files to fabricate a bee home for your garden (I want to find a way to send one to my mum ^^)
News in the industry
Yeahy Illustrator on iPad is now available for everyone. I had so much fun during the beta, it’s really a nice tool when you want to create illustrations. I looove the blob pencil. Also, check Dan Flores’s coloring session
“Who are the gamers?” interesting documentary in French (with English subtitle available) on lack of diversity and toxic masculinity in video games that goes back to the history of games with a lot of scientific studies around the whole theme.
Useful tools and resources that will make your life easy
CSS values, a cool online tool that tells you the different values available for a specific CSS property (by @ImpressiveWebs)
Another great place where you can find some CSS background patterns you can copy paste for your website. This tool also lets you specify some colors, opacity, etc.
