CSS Grid Layout, for example, went from 0 to 80% global support within the span of a few months, making it an incredibly useful and reliable tool in our arsenal. Even though the current support for a feature like CSS Grid Layout is relatively great, not all recent or current browsers support it. This means it’s very likely that you and I will currently be developing for a browser in which it is not supported. The modern solution to developing for both modern and legacy browsers is feature queries. They allow us to write CSS that is conditional on browser support for a particular feature. Although working with feature queries is almost magical, testing them Read the full article…

Taking the name of the event as a starting point, Erika Zorzi and Matteo Sangalli explored what OFFF would mean if the word was an acronym. Possible ideas have included Oyster Flavoured Food Festival and Orange Fringe Feathers Festival.

So, get ready to go bananas with DK as a playable hero in the up-and-coming single-player DLC. When Ubisoft began work on Donkey Kong as a playable character for Kingdom Battle they knew they had an opportunity to play around with some exciting new abilities. So, they gave him some fun new tricks that add an entirely new layer of strategy to an already superb tactics game. Some battle maps have special platforms that let Donkey Kong swing all the way across to the other side of a level — which can be very advantageous during boss battles.

Good design leads to sales and conversions on your website, but crafting great design is no easy task. It takes a lot of time and effort to achieve excellent results. Design is a constantly evolving discipline. Product teams iterate on design to deliver the best possible experience to their users. A lot of things might change during each iteration.

Building Diverse Design Teams To Drive Innovation

Building Diverse Design Teams To Drive Innovation Building Diverse Design Teams To Drive Innovation Riri Nagao 2018-05-21T12:00:18+02:002018-05-22T10:59:50+00:00 There has been a surge of conversations about the tech industry lacking diversity. Companies are therefore encountering barriers in innovation. The current state of technology faces inequality and privilege, a consequence of having limited voices represented in the design and product development process. In addition, we live in a challenged political and socio-economic state where it’s easier to be divided than come together despite differences. Design’s role in companies is becoming less about visual appeal and more about hitting business goals and creating value for users. Therefore, the need to build teams with diverse perspectives is becoming imperative. Design will not only be critical to solving problems on the product and experience level, but also relevant on a bigger scale to close social divides and to create inclusive communities.
