  2. Léonie Watson — The Good, The Bad, and The Interesting

    Right before a role=drinks meetup I had a very pleasant conversation with Léonie Watson about what quality means to her. Her definition of quality may differ a bit from many other digital designers and engineers. Léonie turned blind 16 years ago, so certain things we consider to be important might not even exist for her, and the things that are most important to her may not be the first things designers and developers think about.

    We talked about why so many websites are badly built. About the fundamental basics that are missing in many of the frameworks that developers like to use today. And about the designers who believe that wow-experience is more important than user experience. We also talked about the future of technology, incredible things like AI, and how this may make life so much easier for so many people: I like the idea of self driving cars, Léonie needs one. But we also talk about some of the conflicts that exist, for instance between accessibility and privacy, or between different needs of different people.

    It was a pleasant conversation. And the tea was nice as well.

  3. Episode 12 with Marcy Sutton

    On today’s episode we sit down with Marcy Sutton—a senior front end engineer at Deque Systems, where she works on accessibility. We talk about the intersection and differentiations in performance and accessibility. Marcy explains that there’s a huge audience that’s being missed by not making your website accessible.

    Unfortunately, if it’s not something you have a personal connection to, it may not occur to you to think about. We talk about how most companies become interested in accessibility after they suffer a lawsuit, and how Marcy’s teaching us ways we can be proactive instead of reactive. We look at tools on how to make our sites more accessible and who to make them accessible for. We also talk about the metrics to use to measure success and usability.

  5. Andy Clarke - The Fine Art of Web Design (Opening Keynote)

    For years we’ve been told that the websites we make shouldn’t make people think and that we should put user needs first. But what if none of that were true? In this talk, art director and designer Andy Clarke explores how art direction and creative expression make designs that are distinctive, individual and full of personality.

  8. RWD Podcast #54 — Responsive Web Design

    This week we are looking at an article from Cloud Four and Jason Grigsby about PWAs.

    In the article he talks about how to approach Progressive Web Apps not from a technical approach such as…

    Implement HTTPS

    Add Service Worker

    Do caching stuff

    Dinner and cocktails

    But instead the logistics of the design and approach. He talks about the tough things like

    When is it an app and when is it a website?

    What expectations do users have if it is one or another?

  9. 101: Sparkbox - CodePen Blog

    This show kicks off what hopefully will be a 10-part mini series where we talk with other businesses that, like us, make money off the web. Some of them will be freemium SaaS (Software as a Service) like us, and some will be more tangentially related. Some will be bigger than us (probably most of them), and some will be smaller.

    In this episode we’re talking to Ben Callahan and Rob Harr from Sparkbox about their experience running an agency - hiring employees, forecasting cash flow, diversifying income, how Sparkbox handles apprenticeships, and how they’re handling growth.

  10. 5by5 | The Big Web Show #146: Know Your Web Design History – Glenn Davis of Project Cool, Cool Site of the Day, and The Web Standards Project

    Glenn Davis is the creator of Cool Site of the Day; cofounder of Project Cool; and cofounder, Executive Committee member, and essayist for The Web Standards Project, which he also hosted. Glenn was a leading force behind Liquid Design, an approach that predates Responsive Web Design by about 20 years. He taught everyone how to do “DHTML” via his Project Cool tutorials. In the Silicon Valley from 1994 through the early 2000s, Glenn was a huge creative force.

    In a lively hour, Glenn and host Jeffrey Zeldman discuss life before the animated GIF; “perceived bandwidth;” building their first websites; getting from Gopher to the web; SLIP and PPP connections; discovering UNIX; the story behind Cool Site of the Day; the battle for standards in our browsers; the web then versus the web now; and much, much more.
