  • Posted to What do you wear to work and to interviews?, Nov 28, 2016

    I work in scruffy jeans, a nerdy t-shirt and often a hoodie (depending on season) and a pair of comfy sneakers (chucks etc).

    When I interviewed for this job I wore a new pair of jeans, a pair of chucks and a plain black t-shirt with long sleeves. I don't imagine me ever applying for the kind of company that requires shirts and ties so this would be the kind of thing I wear to any interview.

    I should mention, I work at Booking.com. We employ about 15,000 people around the world. I work closely with people from many cultures and various roles around the company. We almost exclusively dress in whatever we are comfy in, for some that is a smart shirt, but you'll almost never see anyone in a suit.

    Breacrumbs are "currently trending"? Hell no, Breadcrumbs have been a useful part of navigation on the internet for donkeys years. Useful yes, trendy? No!

    12-2pm? Isn't that like... Lunch time? Seems like a weird time to schedule meetings.

    Does anyone know how the paper is? I frequently use Letraset Pro Markers for my mockups / sketching and they leak through a lot of paper. so it takes something really tough to prevent leakage.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Transgender on a gender question for a form?, in reply to Marc Edwards , Jul 29, 2016

    This... unless you are creating a form collecting medical data, I can't think of any genuine (i.e. not marketing) reason why you would need to know your users gender.

  • Posted to Site Design: Pooper App, in reply to Duke Cavinski , Jul 20, 2016

    What if someone else left poop in the same area? Will they pick up all the poop or only one poop? What if they get the wrong poop? This service is too complicated - it'll never take off! :-p

  • Posted to Ask DN: "Buy Now" or "Add To Cart"?, in reply to Dennis Eusebio , Jul 19, 2016

    This is really the best answer. If you want to know which one performs best, you have to test it. OP's site is different to the site I work on, we have different products and customers. What works for me may not work for you. Test it. Google Analytics has tools for deploying an a/b test for free.

    If you have a decent amount of traffic there is really no excuse for not testing it for yourself. If you don't have traffic, stop wasting your time on a/b testing - you should be focused on marketing your site.

  • Posted to Aaron Draplin interview about the creation of "Pretty Much Everything", in reply to Chris Kalani , Jul 11, 2016

    I met him a couple of weeks back at Front End Design Conference in St Petersburg (Florida not Russia). He's a really cool guy. His presentation was one of the best I've seen in a long time, not at all dry or dull, really chock full of content and interesting (to be fair, that whole conference was pretty damn good!)

  • Posted to Ask DN: Where Do You Find Stock Images for Ecommerce Sites?, Apr 18, 2016

    I've run a couple of e-commerce sites of my own in the past and I was usually provided with images via the wholesaler/manufacturer I was buying from. Almost all are hidden away in a password protected "media" section on their website which is often not even listed on their sitemap etc. One company that doesn't hide their product images away is Apple (http://www.apple.com/uk/pr/products/) but I'm not totally sure what the law is around copyright given that you are using them as examples (I doubt any enlightened companies would bother taking you to court over such a thing given that it's basically free promotion!)
