    100% agree, but you can't be inspired by a book until you can read.

    There's a long way to go with this product, certainly. I would love to see some Brett Victor inspired inspection and direct manipulation (similar, if not greatly, improved over the existing xCode playgrounds)

    I totally see your point; the education here is assuming that rote learning leads to inspiration, and like you, I also believe that inspiration is what leads to learning.

    The article isn't correct, there is a blank canvas mode, and some nice templates that you can use.

    He unfortunately hasn't used playgrounds, you can try it out with the iOS 10 beta already.

    We launched our old-site with great feedback from you guys here at DN, lots of constructive comments and opinions, a year and a half later and we've now launched our new site!

    Would love to hear the communities input on our next attempt, what can we improve?

    Is this actually a re-design? The Site's been like this for quite a while.

    Still great.

    Kudos to the dev for attempting to implement the ARIA spec, but there are quite a few issues here which make it completely unusable from an A11y standpoint:

    1. Adds the listbox role (i'd argue this should be a tabpanel) role but doesn't manage focus
    2. Nothing conveys state
    3. None of the interactive elements are focusable (so buttons can't be used)
    4. Images don't have an Alt text (so there's nothing to read even if one could navigate around it - also bad for SEO)

    Please read up on the spec and see examples of the tabpanel role at:

    Nice work on the responsive and touch interaction bits though (would be cool to add real-time touch interaction rather than the navigation on swipe gesture interaction)

    worth noting that as it's using the ClassList API so will work on IE10+

    edit: sorry this came across as very negative. I was excited that you made a big deal out of adding ARIA support, and ultimately disappointed that it was a terrible A11y experience, although no worse than 99.9% of the carousels out there :)
