As designers, we are often burdened by the responsibility of producing and managing website content. It's not our job to write it, but it's not the client's either. We can avert disaster by including content production in the design process.
On his blog Marc Baker about static calls and the trouble they bring in your applications. It's a continuation of ideas that Kore Nordmann shared previously on his site. It's been seven years since Kore Nordmann first published "static considered harmful" on his blog, explaining the problems with using static method calls in classes, and the difficulties that they cause when trying to test that class. Seven years on, and those difficulties are still the same, and there is still new code being written using static calls despite that knowledge; but it's often a more severe problem in legacy code with little or no unit tests.a So why exactly are static calls so bad? If you've read Kore's article, then you probably have a good idea already; but what that article doesn't cover is approaches that we can use to make the code testable. He covers the main issue static methods have when it comes to testing: they introduce coupling by hard-coding a dependency into your code. He talks about the static testing functionality that various PHP testing tools provided: PHPUnit, Phake and Mockery. He then focuses on a newer tool that he's discovered to help make the testing simpler: AspectMock. He gives an example of it in use and some examples of tests using anonymous classes to make it easier to create tests on the fly.

On the Sticher.io site there's a new tutorial posted where Brendt shares some thoughts about domain driven design and splitting codebases to make them more maintainable and logically separated. In this post we'll look at a different approach of structuring large code bases into separate domains. The name "domain" is derived from the popular paradigm DDD, or also: domain driven design. While many concepts in this post are inspired by DDD principles, they will not follow every rule set by the paradigm. In our context, "domain" can also be named "module". A "domain" simply refers to a category of related stuff, that's it. The post then starts with a definition of what a "domain" is and how it relates to functionality in an application (a Laravel app in this case). He gives an example of restructuring the code into "domains" of functionality rather than thinking about their types (enums, rules, etc). He provides a new proposed directory structure for these domains including folders for Actions, Exceptions, Rules, Status and ValueObjects. He then walks through several of these categories and gives a bit more detail about what's inside and some of the functionality those files might contain.

I have been an iOS developer for over a decade now and have rarely seen articles that consolidate all possible ways to perform animations in iOS. This article aims to be a primer on iOS animations with the intent of exhaustively covering the different ways of doing the same. Given the extensiveness of the topic, we would cover each part succinctly at a fairly high level. The goal is to educate the reader with a set of choices to add animations to his/ her iOS app.
