If great design can imbue customers with trust, why are designers so removed from product management and the larger business strategy? As a VP of UX with an MBA, I strive to bring both worlds together to create a new model in which user experience and design align with overall business strategy and company vision to drive increased revenue and customer engagement. As the Internet became commercially viable, "first to market" generally prevailed as a dominant corporate strategy. However, as technology has become more open and reusable, product differentiation is now a proven strategic blueprint. This tectonic shift has been a boon for the design discipline. Consequently, design has gotten the proverbial "seat at the table" and is now expected to be a driving, strategic function.The post UX Meets MBA: What Happens When A Designer Goes To Business School appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

Every UI component, no matter if it's an accordion, a hamburger navigation, a data table, or a carousel, brings along its unique challenges. Coming up with a new solution for every problem takes time, and often it's really not necessary. We can rely on smart design patterns and usability tests, and ask the right questions ahead of time to avoid issues down the line. Meet "Smart Interface Design Checklists", with questions to ask when designing and building any interface component.
As a React developer, you should be already familiar with the principle that state should not be mutated directly. You might be wondering what that means (most of us had that confusion when we started out). This tutorial will do justice to that: you will understand what immutable state is and the need for it. You'll also learn how to use Immer to work with immutable state and the benefits of using it.
Sergey Zhuk has a post to his site covering concurrency including some of the basic concepts and how promises and coroutines come in to play. What does concurrency mean? To put it simply, concurrency means the execution of multiple tasks over a period of time. PHP runs in a single thread, which means that at any given moment there is only one bit of PHP code that can be running. That may seem like a limitation, but it brings us a lot of freedom. We don't have to deal with all this complexity that comes with parallel programming and threaded environment. But at the same time, we have a different set of problems. We have to deal with concurrency. We have to manage and to coordinate it. He goes on to talk about parallel requests, cross-request needs and the requirement for coordination. He then covers the subject of promises, briefly defining it and giving an example of creating a basic promise in ReactPHP. Following this he talks about the other main topic of the article: using PHP generators along with parallel requests to only create the responses when yielded.
Sometimes the best inspiration lies right in front of us. With that in mind, we embarked on a special creativity mission eight years ago: to provide you with inspiring and unique desktop wallpapers every month. Wallpapers that are a little more distinctive than the usual crowd and that are bound to fuel your ideas. We are very thankful to all artists and designers who have contributed and are still diligently contributing to this mission, who challenge their artistic abilities each month anew to keep the steady stream of wallpapers flowing. This post features their artwork for November 2016. Both versions with and without a calendar can be downloaded for free.

Web and mobile apps are moving away from pages towards completely personalized experiences. These new experiences are built on an aggregation of many individual pieces of content. The way this content is now being presented is in the form of cards. The card-based interaction model is spreading pretty widely, and you can see digital cards almost everywhere — from news sites to food delivery apps. In this article, I'll explain what cards mean to UI designers, and I'll review three popular card-based services. If you're interested in prototyping your own card-based user interface, you can download and test Adobe's Experience Design CC for free and get started right away.The post Designing Card-Based User Interfaces appeared first on Smashing Magazine.
