I recently was on Jeff Bullas' website when I encountered a pop-up promoting an ebook. Nothing about that seemed too out of the ordinary. However, what struck me as odd was that the CTA wasn't an Email field and "Submit" button. Instead, it just had a blue "Send to Messenger" button. Jeff Bullas sends ebook leads to his Facebook Messenger chatbot. (Image source: Jeff Bullas) (Large preview) To be honest, I was shocked to see that anyone would send their website visitors to engage with a Facebook Messenger bot.

In a new post to the Exakat blog they try to answer the question "how many parameters is too many" when it comes to the structure of the methods and functions in your application. Now, that is a classic question, that is often a minefield for anyone writing an increasing long list of argument in a method, or simply trying to set up auditing tools. Obviously, the answer is not immediate. Parameters may be needed, but on the other hands, currying functions allows to reduce the amount of parameter to one for every function. In between, probably exists a reasonable level that is a golden rule, and also very elusive. So, we decided to check the current practice in PHP code. They started the research with some of PHP's own native functions that took in specific arguments, ignoring those that took an arbitrary number. Next they made a survey of 1900 open source projects to determine the common practice for parameters by function. The results showed that methods without at least one parameter were "less useful" and that a seemingly reasonable amount of parameters is 5. The post finishes with a spotlight of two they found during their research that had the most parameters: a generated class for database interaction and a dependency injection class.
The StarTutorial.com site has continued their series covering common design patterns and their implementation in PHP. In their latest article they cover the Template Method pattern. [This pattern] defines the skeleton of an algorithm in a method, deferring some steps to subclasses. Template Method lets subclasses redefine certain steps of an algorithm without changing the algorithm's structure. In their example, they have two workers that have different schedules but with one difference. Instead of having implementations that differ widely between the two workers (represented by classes) they refactor the main class and allow for a doWork method to be defined in the child. This makes the parent class a sort of "template" for handling the processing with the child filling in the blanks.
Lightweight, handy, cost-effective and powerful – Sketch App was a dark horse that took the web by storm not so many years ago and became an alternative to goliaths such as Photoshop or Illustrator. Although it is available just for aficionados and lucky owners of Macs, this does not stop it from conquering the creative offices around the world. The majority of the premium digital goods that are created these days, such as packages of icons, GUI sets, website templates or other designer’s stuff, come in several formats, and Sketch is one of them.
