A List with Crowdsourced Testing Platforms and Their ‘Sign Up’ Links

For a good while I worked in testing. It all started because, as a newbie in Web Design, I had the need to learn a bit of how users think in order to optimize their experience on the websites I was going to build. I went about this the unusual way, I’m sure you won’t. I’m sure that if you do read this article, it’s probably because you are an experienced tester looking to make some extra money from app. and Desktop testing, remotely. And if that is the case (and I hope it is, otherwise you end up wasting your time and their’s?—?what is not correct and accurate never gets rewarded, you need to be fast and smart on these platforms), here is a list I came up with. I did work in all of these platforms and I am not going to rank them, because each experience level Read the full article…

Monthly Web Development Update 12/2017: Pragmatic Releasing, Custom Elements, And Making Decisions

Today I read an eye-opening article about the current young generation and their financial future. It’s hard to grasp words like “Millenials”, and there’s much talk about specific issues they face, but, for many of us, it’s not easy to understand their struggle — no matter if you’re older or younger than me (I qualify under the Millenial generation). But Michael Hobbes’ entertaining and super informative article revealed a lot to me. Read the full article…

New viral hit game ‘PUBG’ sells 1M copies in 48 hours on Xbox One, but technical issues disrupt amazing concept

Photo via Microsoft. There is a ton of fervor for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) on Xbox, but the actual gaming experience thus far has been disappointing to many. The super popular battle royale-style game, which debuted on PC in “early access” earlier this year and broke Steam records for concurrent players, arrived on console for the first time this week as an Xbox One exclusive. Microsoft reported today that in the first 48 hours there were more than 1 million downloads of the $29.99 game, which is also still in “early access” and was released as part of the Xbox Game Preview program. After playing PUBG on PC with my buddy, I was instantly hooked. The concept is simple yet incredibly fun — it’s a free-for-all Hunger Games-style fight where you and 99 other players parachute down on a big remote island. You find weapons and other tools in buildings; the map becomes Read the full article…

Porg Invasion is the Star Wars: The Last Jedi mini-game that’s about to take over Facebook

It wouldn’t be a new Star Wars film without an adorable and yet equally divisive pet-like character from which Disney can launch a merchandising gold mine. The Force Awakens gave us the stoic and circular R2-D2 successor BB-8, but Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, which hits theaters today, is all about the porg. To celebrate the puffin-like bird species of planet Ahch-To, on which Luke Skywalker has exiled himself, Disney is launching a Facebook Instant Games mini-game today called Porg Invasion. To avoid spoilers, let’s just say that porgs are not Chewbacca’s favorite thing in the world. Porg Invasion puts you in the Wookiee pilot’s shoes, with BB-8 as the primary playable character, as you stave off a porg onslaught on the Millennium… Read the full article…

Steam purges Pepe emoticons after copyright complaint

Steam has removed icons featuring Matt Furie’s cartoon frog Pepe from its platform, part of Furie’s larger legal battle to wrest the character away from the far right. As reported by Kotaku, users began complaining yesterday that Pepe and Pepe-like emoticons had disappeared from their inventory. The developer of a game called Make America Great Again: The Trump Presidency wrote that they’d removed their emoticons after Steam received a legal order. “If we sign a thing that says [Furie] can sue us and not them Valve will put it back up,” they wrote. “At the moment we’re not going to sign that because going to court is… bad even if we’re right.” Furie’s lawyer August Louis Tompros told Kotaku that he didn’t proactively single out Steam….

Microsoft is bundling PUBG with the Xbox One X

Getting battle royale sensation PUBG on the Xbox One was a major coup for Microsoft, and now the company is exploiting that by bundling the game with the Xbox One X over the holidays. According to the company, every purchase of the new 4K console between December 17th and the 31st will include a copy of PUBG (though the promotion is only available in select regions). PUBG made its Xbox debut this week through the console’s “game preview” program, and while it’s clunkier than its PC counterpart, it still offers the same thrilling action — and, at least from a visual perspective, it appears to run better on the One X compared to the original Xbox One. Microsoft says that more than 1 million players purchased the game in its first 48 hours… Read the full article…

How to quickly sketch hands

To draw hands, you need to look past the complexity of the hand’s anatomy and recognise simple rules that will help you draw from a model or even your own imagination. Although they’re notoriously tricky to get right, there are some sketching tips and tricks you can use. To help you, in this short tutorial we’ll break the process down into four simple steps to create a quick sketch. We’ll start by exploring the structure of the hand, and then look at how to translate this into a drawing. Watch the video below, and follow my written steps beneath that. We also have a more in-depth guide on How to draw hands, which breaks hand gestures into shapes for a more refined and realistic style. This guide is more concerned about creating sketches that capture the essence of a hand, at speed. Read on for four simple steps. 01. Consider Read the full article…

Fallout 4 VR Review

Walking through the ruins of Boston in Fallout 4 VR is a sobering experience that makes the post-nuclear world feel that much more real. Fallout 4 clearly wasn’t built for this, as the troublesome Pip Boy menu system demonstrates all too well, but you can get around and defend yourself well enough that if you love Fallout and have a high-end PC and an HTC Vive, it’s hard to say no to. Given the sky-high system requirements of a GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD FX 8350, it’s not all that surprising that Fallout 4 looks pretty respectable in VR. Far fewer knobs had to be turned to their lowest setting here than in Skyrim VR on the PlayStation 4, and while Fallout 4 was never a cutting-edge game when it comes to graphics, character models, textures, and draw distances are only a little bit below where I remembered them. I Read the full article…

What’s behind great experiences: Adaptability

by Hans-Peter Gauster Every project has constraints. Money, time, technology, resources, etc. and we don’t like them at all. They don’t allow us to do the great things we imagined. The things that would be perfect and awesome. Our greatest work of all! But… Is it really? 99,9% of times you will have some type(s) of constraint(s) on your work. The real challenge is how to overcome it and still build great experiences. The psychology behind constraints When we have less to work with, psychologists have found that we actually begin to see the world differently. The above quote is taken from an article on Fast Company. This article is quite enlightening on what is creative work and the role constraints play. If you think of creative work something that you do everyday, as part of getting things done, and not something purely artistic or a gift that you’re born with, you’ll Read the full article…

How To Use Underlined Text To Improve User Experience

(This article is supported by Adobe.) An underline is a horizontal line immediately below a portion of text. In our everyday experience, we underline to emphasize key sections of text, sometimes drawing an underline by hand below printed text. But underlines have their own place in the world of digital design. In fact, underlined text has become one of the most common, most recognizable features of our online experience.
