Falsehoods programmers believe about… Biometrics

(For the new reader, there is a famous essay called Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names. It has since spawned a long list of Falsehoods Programmers Believe About....)

Everyone has fingerprints!

The BBC has a grim tale of a family with a genetic mutation which means they have no fingerprints. It det

It's bad to use words like "advanced" in UI design, but I'm trying to communicate this to someone else, with more than, "Because I know it's bad due to user research and user testing I've done and stuff I've read back in the day."

For example: There was a blog post somewhere about Nautilus having an "advanced mode"* back in the Eazel days and how that's bad.

(IIRC; it had 3 states: beginner, intermediate, advanced and some things were hidden.)

Anyone have links to resources? Thanks!

V Bufferu mam uz dlouho zalozenou ideu o Figma Dev Modu, kteremu se podarilo znicit vsechna hand-off reseni nedavne minulosti. Kdo si jeste pamatuje Zeplin?

Ted mi na >c.d email prisla smutna zprava, ze Figma presouva Dev Mode exkluzivne do placeneho planu. To je nenapadna, ale dost zasadni zprava. V celem nasem neziskovo-dobrovolnickem setupu jsme odkazani na hand-off prave Figmy ve view only modu.

Presun vyvojaru do placeneho modu bude bolet. Ceka nas Zeplin Revival?

WRKS neni charita.

Jeden ze zajimavych problemu vyplyvajici z rozhovoru s tvurci obsahu je poziciovani platforem typu Patreon, Kofi... jako "charity". Podporujte umelce pro dobry pocit.

Je to casto zminovany duvod, proc se jim umelci brani. Snazime se proti tomu vymezit a nestavet umelce do role zebraku na ulici.

Prepis webu >c.d do Webflow zdarne probiha.

Tedy probiha uprava designu. Designerka upravuje Figmu, tak aby s ni slo pracovat ve Webflow kompatibilnim formatu. Z tehle faze uz jde udelat hruby export primo do Webflow (pluginem) a jenom doladit detaily.

Koncept responsivity ve webflow je top->down. Zacina se na Desktopu (>991), pres Tablet (>767) po mobil (<=767). Silne doporucuju je nemenit. To by mohlo rozbit predatelnost projektu, Webflow koderi jsou na to zvykli.

Everyone waiting for @bagder to reach 100 operating systems but actually the only important aspect is that it’s not a prime number for the list to fit nicely into a rectangle. 😉

99 did a very good job of 9×11 OSes. 100=10×10 will probably do just fine.

But dare you anyone submitting the 101st OS (prime number)! ☝️

Some very vocal #LibreOffice devs consider that client-side window decorations (for example #GTK HeaderBar kind of things) are "NOT a #UX #design issue", and that it's all about the burden of maintaining that across different OSes/platforms.

Yeah… I might buy their argument if LibreOffice had the guts to actually commit to only one (or two) UI layouts and toolkits, instead of maintaining *seven* UI layout choices, to begin with 🙄️

I’ve promised enough people this, so I had to do it! 😁

Here’s my write-up of how I added client-side Fediverse-powered comments to my Jekyll blog using the Mastodon API.

Huge props to @jwildeboer for the initial inspiration, as well as @julian and everyone who provided feedback for inspiring the design improvements.

Alex Hollender's retrospective on a recent Wikipedia redesign

reminded me of a post I wrote in 2019: Design, and Friction Preventing Design Improvement, in Open Tech

https://www.harihareswara.net/posts/2019/design-and-friction-preventing-design-improvement-in-open-tech/

On:

those exceptional #FLOSS projects that aren't developer tools, and are robust, & have high-quality user experience

problems & approaches in product management + #UX #design in #opensource, and people already working on it

Wow, so the other day I shared what #Microsoft does when you search to download #Firefox from #Edge* but they go one step further for #Chrome.

(I have zero love for either surveillance capitalist but, my goodness, what absolute asshattery. Having spent more time than I’d like testing in #Windows these past two days, I constantly feel like some malevolent entity is trying to exploit me at every turn. Because one is. This OS is a case study in hostile #design.)

Here's some tips about mobile app design. If you're holding a phone, normal humans can't reach buttons at the top of the screen with their thumb without using a 2nd hand. It's better to put the buttons where fingers can reach them so that buttons are easier to use. https://bookofadamz.com/smartphone-graphic-user-interface-design-tips/ #UX #Design


Dear @libreoffice, your message is clearly an understatement.

"Designing with LibreOffice" is a book about making full use of the writing experience of the LibreOffice Suite.

"LibreOffice is as much a desktop publishing application as an office suite"
