Today, in the year 2016, all modern websites are rich of media, with even large format images being used. On average, images have a loading volume share of over 60 percent. This should be enough reason to take care of the optimization of photos and graphics, as well as to uncover the most common mistakes. Many mistakes when it comes to images are made by designers and developers already. However, users are very careless as well, and often approach using photos for the web without the necessary knowledge. The careless use of image media can come with disadvantages for a website’s loading speed. Taking a close look at a typical blog makes the problem evident: Image Shares of a Regular Blog To illustrate this, I measured my personal blog. Here, it becomes apparent that the image shares make up 76,8 percent of my website’s file size. In addition to that, the graphics trigger 20 HTTP queries.

On his Medium.com site Nicolas Grekas talks about a new RFC that's been proposed to provide a safer method for serializing and unserializing values in native PHP functionality. PHP serialization/unserialization has several drawbacks. [...] To mitigate these security issues, the unserialize() function handles an allowed_classes option since PHP 7.0. Implementing Serializable has this security-mitigation advantage of allowing authors to filter the allowed classes in the subgraph managed by their objects. This feature is only a mitigation because not all use cases know all the possible classes beforehand. He starts by listing out some of the issues with both the current implementations of serialization and unserialization in PHP. From there he makes a proposal for some new functionality to help make things a bit more sane: a __serialize magic method a new S type representing serialized data a new __unserialize magic method automatic protection around destructors during the unserialization process He finishes up the post talking about some of the expected benefits of this kind of functionality and a few of the extra considerations that would need to be thought through as a part of the implementation.

Design is about solving problems. No matter what product we work on, we always try to provide the best possible solution to our users. Product research, ideation, prototyping, and testing are essential steps of the product design process. The ideation phase plays a crucial role in the design process because, during this phase, designers form hypotheses--raw ideas on how to solve the problem. But every hypothesis, no matter how good it might sound, always requires validation.
