Coaching is fun and satisfying for me. I’ve learned that young engineers learn better by doing.
I wanted to illustrate the difference between Inversion of Control and Dependency Injection. Writing a minimal container turned out to be a great way to illustrate these concepts.
I was amazed as to how “natural” the whole thing turned out to be.
A word is mightier than the sword, particularly in UX. Words can be the difference between making an interaction painful or delightful. They are the guides, integrated to the design, that will create the experience with your product.
You’ve got to make each word count. Each must speak and mean those specific actions you want the user to take.
According to a study by Jakob Nielsen, 79% of users don’t read, they either scan or skim. Only 16% read word-by-word.
You’d better start writing meaningful texts.
The number of patients using telemedicine apps has more than doubled from 2017 to 2018.
Telemedicine is improving the quality and reducing the cost of patient care. In particular, remote patients can more easily get clinical services, faster.
Patients are benefiting from telemedicine apps but that doesn’t mean they have the ideal experience.
But what kind of challenges are patients facing that impact the future adoption of the service?
Imagine a software product that looks and behaves exactly as you imagined it. This is possible with a little effort on your side.
In my experience, this is possible if you are in perfect sync with your whole product team. In my case, it started by learning to code and learning to speak the language of development.
Learning to code opened the door wide for me. Here is what it taught me.
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) estimates that corporate travel spending will reach $1.6 trillion in 2020. Most of your company’s future revenue will come from just a handful of your existing customers.
Here’s how you engage them with your loyalty programs.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite UX trends for 2019, including a mix and match from several design articles.
Python uses peephole optimization of your code by either pre-calculating constant expressions or transforming certain data structures.
This kind of optimization is really interesting because it’s something that happens underneath your code. You would normally not even know that all this stuff is happening.
Why is this done?
Not many people have heard of Intering in Python. You might be one them. If so, you are not alone.
Intering is the way Python optimizes the memory used in Python. It does this by sharing the reference to common literals, numeric or string, used by more than one variable.
Let’s dig a bit deeper.
AI can help you understand the needs of users. It also helps you know how they behave with every little element of a product—you will learn more with every interaction. As a result, instead of just solving a problem, a product will be able to delight the user and to create new paths for conversion and engagement.
Global e-commerce sales exceeded $2 trillion in 2017, and are on pace to more than double by 2021. Yet average online conversion rates have remained doggedly low. Fewer than 4% of consumers arriving from desktop browsers actually buy products.
Nothing deters potential customers from completing their purchase more than bad customer service.
