  • Human-Readable JavaScript: A Tale of Two Experts

    Everyone wants to be an expert. But what does that even mean? Over the years I’ve seen two types of people who are referred to as “experts.” Expert 1 is someone who knows every tool in the language and makes sure to use every bit of it, whether it helps or not. Expert 2 also knows every piece of syntax, but they’re pickier about what they employ to solve problems, considering a number of factors, both code-related and not.  Can you take a guess at which expert we want working on our team? If you said Expert 2, you’d be right. They’re a developer focused on delivering readable code—lines of JavaScript others can understand and maintain. Someone who can make the complex simple. But “readable” is rarely definitive—in fact, it’s largely based on the eyes of the beholder. So where does that le…

  • Now THAT’S What I Call Service Worker!

    The Service Worker API is the Dremel of the web platform. It offers incredibly broad utility while also yielding resiliency and better performance. If you’ve not used Service Worker yet—and you couldn’t be blamed if so, as it hasn’t seen wide adoption as of 2020—it goes something like this: On the initial visit to a website, the browser registers what amounts to a client-side proxy powered by a comparably paltry amount of JavaScript that—like a Web Worker—runs on its own thread. After the Service Worker’s registration, you can intercept requests and decide how to respond to them in the Service Worker’s fetch() event. What you decide to do with requests you intercept is a) your call and b) depends on your website. You can rewrite requests, precache static assets during install, provide off…

  • Keeping Your Design Mind New and Fresh

    “Only a fool knows everything.” — African Proverb Since March 2020, most of us have been working from home, and the days blend into each other and look the same. This is not the first time I have experienced this type of feeling.  My commute — New York to New Jersey — is what folks in my area call the reverse commute.While going to the office, my days began to look the same: riding the subway to a bus to a shuttle to get to my job. Have you ever arrived at a destination and not even realized how you got there? This is how I began to experience the world everyday. I stopped paying attention to my surroundings. Because I worked a lot, the only time I would take off was for the holidays. During this time, I was a consultant and was coming to the end of an existing contract. For six years str…

  • How to Get a Dysfunctional Team Back on Track

    Maybe you’ve been part of a team that you’ve seen slowly slide into a rut. You didn’t notice it happen, but you’re now not shipping anything, no one’s talking to each other, and the management’s Eye of Sauron has cast its gaze upon you. Maybe you’ve just joined a team that’s in the doldrums. Maybe the people who used to oil the wheels that kept everyone together have moved on and you’re having to face facts—you all hate each other. However you’ve ended up in this situation, the fact is that you’re now here and it’s up to someone to do something about it. And that person might be you. You’re not alone The first thing to understand is that you’re not the only person to ever encounter problems.

  • The Future of Web Software Is HTML-over-WebSockets

    The future of web-based software architectures is already taking form, and this time it’s server-rendered (again). Papa’s got a brand new bag: HTML-over-WebSockets and broadcast everything all the time. The dual approach of marrying a Single Page App with an API service has left many dev teams mired in endless JSON wrangling and state discrepancy bugs across two layers. This costs dev time, slows release cycles, and saps the bandwidth for innovation. But a new WebSockets-driven approach is catching web developers’ attention. One that reaffirms the promises of classic server-rendered frameworks: fast prototyping, server-side state management, solid rendering performance, rapid feature development, and straightforward SEO. One that enables multi-user collaboration and reactive, responsive d…

  • Designing Inclusive Content Models

    In the 1920s, Robert Moses designed a system of parkways surrounding New York City. His designs, which included overpasses too low for public buses, have become an often-cited example of exclusionary design and are argued by biographer Robert A. Caro to represent a purposeful barrier between the city’s Black and Puerto Rican residents and nearby beaches.  Regardless of the details of Moses’s parkway project, it’s a particularly memorable reminder of the political power of design and the ways that choices can exclude various groups based on abilities and resources. The growing interest in inclusive design highlights questions of who can participate, and in relation to the web, this has often meant a focus on accessibility and user experience, as well as on questions related to team diversi…

  • The Never-Ending Job of Selling Design Systems

    I’m willing to bet that you probably didn’t start your web career because you wanted to be a politician or a salesperson. But here’s the cold, hard truth, friend: if you want to work on design systems, you don’t have a choice. Someone has to pay for your time, and that means someone has to sell what you do to an audience that speaks value in an entirely different language.  It’s not exactly easy to connect the benefits of a design system directly to revenue. With an ecomm site, you can add a feature and measure the impact. With other conversion-based digital experiences, if your work is good, your customers will convert more. But because a design system is (usually) an internal tool, it’s just harder to connect those dots.  This article boils down the methods I’ve put into practice convin…

  • Navigating the Awkward: A Framework for Design Conversations

    We’ve all been there. A client or coworker shows us this amazing thing they (and maybe their entire team) have worked on for hours or weeks. They are so proud of it. It’s new or maybe it just looks new. They may or may not ask you what you think—but you’re there to experience it. And your brain quietly screams. As an experienced designer, you often have an intuitive reaction and can quickly spot bad designs; they may be visually incongruent, poorly structured, confusing, lack social awareness, or look like they are trying too hard. If your initial response is so negative that it slips through into your expression or voice or body language, it can completely sabotage any possibility of buy-in. And, far more seriously, it can ruin the relationship of trust and collaboration you’re building…

  • Webwaste

    The Web is obese In 1994, there were 3,000 websites. In 2019, there were estimated to be 1.7 billion, almost one website for every three people on the planet. Not only has the number of websites exploded, the weight of each page has also skyrocketed. Between 2003 and 2019, the average webpage weight grew from about 100 KB to about 4 MB. The results? “In our analysis of 5.2 million pages,” Brian Dean reported for Backlinko in October 2019, “the average time it takes to fully load a webpage is 10.3 seconds on desktop and 27.3 seconds on mobile.” In 2013, Radware calculated that the average load time for a webpage on mobile was 4.3 seconds. Study after study shows that people absolutely hate slow webpages. In 2018, Google research found that 53% of mobile site visitors left a page that took…

  • Connecting the Dots

    Two plans: one for design, one for culture. What I’ve found is that the DNA between both dynamics must be inextricable from one another. Creating with compassion in an environment fueled by compassion means we never lose sight of what it’s all about: people. Beyond functioning in this manner because “it’s the right thing to do,” quality of work, loyalty internally (team) and externally (users), and product innovation are all benefits to reap. Earlier we talked through the concept of “simplicity” and its application to creation and environment. Now, let’s revisit a few other examples of healthy benchmarks from a creative culture as we’ve discussed in this book: Slowing down / pausing with intent Everyone has a seat at the table The New Day One In taking a focused look at these facets, thei…

    Although 2 million people in the U.S. live in long-term care facilities, places like nursing homes have long been plagued with issues — and, as John Oliver explains during his latest Last Week Tonight deep dive, the coronavirus pandemic has only made these things worse. The truth is, COVID just exposed what we've basically known for years, Oliver says in the clip above. That the elderly and disabled are treated in far too many of these facilities with at best indifference, and at worse abuse and neglect. Oliver goes on to cite grim examples of the issues found in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, including neglect due to understaffing, high costs that aren't fully covered by health care programs, and nursing homes allegedly kicking out elderly residents to make room for patien…

At least one company manufacturing the MiniLED display for Apple recently had to pause production due to poor yields, the report claims.  According to Bloomberg, Apple will launch the new iPad Pro in two sizes as early as this month, but only the larger, 12.9-inch model will have the MiniLED display. That model is the one that may be in short supply at launch, or may even ship at a later date than the smaller variant.  Read more...More a…

White House reporters have been fielding questions from press who cannot physically be in the room due to coronavirus protocols. Through this, Montagu has been able to ask questions passed on by other reporters regarding ambassadorships, COVID-19 travel bans, and Biden's response to a hack at Microsoft.

    Something exceptional happened on Saturday: U.S. lawmakers in Maryland moved to repeal the state's police Bill of Rights.

Of the five bills making up the entire package — all of which passed in the state's Democrat-controlled General Assembly — Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, vetoed three, including the police Bill of Rights repeal. The vetoed bills returned to the General Assembly for a vote on Saturday, where both the state House and Senate voted to successfully override Hogan's vetoes.
