  • Posted to What kind of car should a UX designer use?, Feb 27, 2017

    That's a good question, but it depends on who the user is. Automatic is great because it's easy to use and has a low learning curve. For the majority of users, simple is much better. For some, manual is better because of the improved gas mileage, easier to maintain, and the experience of driving them is fun.

  • Posted to Designer Looking to get deeper into coding as Frontend-Dev, Feb 27, 2017

    Ruby on Rails my top recommendation by far for startups. You can build anything. (chat apps, airbnb, search engines, uber, APIs, etc). Once whatever you build is done, I'd change out the front-end using ReactJS. So Rails for the Models and Controllers and react for the Views. It's very opinionated way to code, so it also takes out the decision fatigue that comes with a newer frameworks.

    So beautiful and fun to navigate around. Gabriela and Rift look really great together (I see Roboto as a 3rd font and it is a bit of a random choice/it doesn't really fit the aesthetic). The choice of colors and the overlays on the images are dope!

  • Posted to Ask DN: Job title for Product Designer who writes Javascript?, Jan 26, 2017

    Product Designer is fine. You really need to focus on what the goals are for the title. If they will be shipping production code then they would most likely be a UX Engineer. It not, then designer makes more sense. If the goal of the position is just to prototype, "Interaction Designer & Prototyper" is accurate. In terms of candidates, usually designers with computer science degree will get you what you want.

    Great tutorial and worth the read! ...but this is a no go for production environments. no touch events or accessibility. :(

    Such a beautiful website. Visually, everything was superb, especially typography. Made me want to browse around for a while. My only complaint is the performance. Homepage was 13.9MB (that's insane and my data plan isn't unlimited), images weren't scaled (not using picture element or srcset) or optimized, pages were slow, high number of requests. Leveraging service workers would also be a great improvement to the user experience on this site.
