Yep, this time it's me, because no one else did it yet. Do you prefer that this whole community likes to bash on each others opinion?
And there we go again on DesignerNews. Someone writes an article with a different point of view than most of the 'community' and he gets shit from 75%.
I'm glad some of the people here were able to type a reasonable comment, discussing what points Adam made or explaining why they think he's not right.
For the others, they who question Adam's job title, ask him if he actually has a job or post 'funny' gifs, I hope you see that you're not bringing any value in to a reasonable discussion about something related to our field.
Responses like these occur way too often here in my opinion. And to be honest, a few more of these and I'm out of here.
PS: Adam, I enjoyed your article and see your point. I actually never realised buttons on native systems didn't have hand cursors. Although I'm not sure what would be best on the UX side of things, I think it's a legit question to ask.
Most of it.
I agree with Tim – your wireframe offers more options on comparing fonts and would definitely be relevant. You should only realise that Google might eventually push certain updates through, as they apparently seem to keep improving and / or changing their current version.
You're welcome. What is your choice for making Photoshop plugins while so many people use Sketch nowadays?
Is this yours? 'Useful' is spelled with one l, you might want to correct your hero title.
I'm reading both Hooked and The Obstacle is the Way at the moment. Oh and I'm also listening to David and Goliath. I would recommend all three of these actually.
Two books I read recently and would recommend are Ishmael and The Alchemist. They are not about design but more philosophical. Especially Ishmael made me think a lot about how we perceive the world.
Is it safe?
Edit: Seems to be safe (for me). Any ideas on how to scroll with the new Sketch Mirror in the browser? I can only zoom in/out.
Edit2: Sketch Mirror also uses an excessive amount of CPU on my rMBP.
Although my own portfolio is still hosted on some cheap service and accessed through FTP (hehe), I started using GitLab a few weeks ago and they have a similar service as GitHub Pages, surprisingly enough called GitLab Pages.
I'm hosting one site on it now and it works great. The interface is much more organised and visually more designed than GitHub. GitLab also has free unlimited private repositories.
Where the design community meets.
Designer News is a large, global community of people working or interested in design and technology.
I haven't used Fullstory (it's quite expensive) but I have used Hotjar in two projects. I'm assuming it's comparable and that Fullstory is just better executed.
In the two projects I used Hotjar it has been an extremely valuable tool – especially in the beginning of the projects. After weeks of design and development (without enough testing), the first beta user interactions are worth so much to see recorded.
The downside is that it goes down to getting a big cup of coffee, watching recording after recording and writing down everything you notice. I, therefore, wouldn't use the recordings as a tool to track thousands of users. In that stage conversion funnels, heat maps and face to face user testing might be more useful.
