  3. ‘“I voted Remain,” said Pooh,’ with Rachel Andrew | Unfinished Business

    I’m warning you now, it’s a very different kind of episode of Unfinished Business this week as Rachel Andrew and I talk about our feelings on the referendum result for the UK to leave the EU. We talk about the issues that will affect us, you and our businesses in the coming months and years and what we’re already doing to help mitigate them.

  4. 015: Going The Distance with Rachel Andrew – User Defenders : UX Design Podcast

    Rachel Andrew inspires us to understand people who are not like us because most often the products we design are not for us. She motivates us with her successful habit of GTD (Getting Things Done). She teaches us that solid attention to detail and ability to execute can be more important than specific technical skills. She also proves to us that experience never gets old.

    Rachel Andrew is a Web Pioneer and the Managing Director and founder of UK-based web development company EdgeOfMySeat.com. She’s a prolific author of a number of Web Development books including her most recent A Book Apart published “Getting Ready for CSS Grid Layout”. She’s also an active speaker who has spoken at a number of notable web conferences. When she’s not writing code, or writing about writing code…she’s a taxi to teenagers and quite a fitness buff.

    THEME

    Solid attention to detail and ability to execute can be more important than specific technical skills. Knowing how to break a problem down, design a solution, and coordinate with stakeholders is more important than mastering any one tool or platform.

    TAKEAWAYS

    Many of the most valuable skills we have today are the result of accidental or unplanned career moves. Today, you may be trying to figure out how to do something for your own use. Tomorrow someone else will hire you for that same skill. In our industry, long term planning is tough, so grab the challenges at hand, build good solutions and products, and see where it takes you.

    AWKWARD TESTING STORY

    Nothing huge, but working with users across Europe, language has sometimes been a barrier. One time a user got angry because we were asking about her mental model. She thought we were CALLING her a mental model!

    DESIGN SUPERPOWER

    I’ve been doing this for a long time! My experience allows me to draw on a lot of past projects when I’m approaching a new one.

    DESIGN KRYPTONITE

    Stuff moving around on a page in my peripheral vision is a major pet peeve.

    HOW DO YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR USERS?

    On my own product Perch CMS, I always think about “forgotten users”–the content editors who actually have to use our product day to day after a company buys it. I spend a lot of time making sure that the product looks good not only to the person who may decide to buy it, but also the regular daily users who spend a lot of time there.

    FUTURE OF UX

    We are finally moving beyond a design approach primarily oriented to replicating the print experience online. True web layouts and approaches are here. We’ll have to take into account not only many devices but many mediums (audio, touch, visual).

    HABIT OF SUCCESS

    I’m a big believer in the “GTD” approach (Getting Things Done). I make lists, organize things, and work hard to check things off. You have to know how you work best yourself to get through the not so fun and more mundane stuff.

    BEST ADVICE

    Try to understand people who are not like you. We often work in a design bubble, but the majority of our audience for most products is outside that universe of specialists.

  5. ‘A million Euros to Ireland’ with Rachel Andrew and Richard Rutter | Unfinished Business

    On Unfinished Business this week there’s no talk about mugs but Rachel Andrew is back. We’re joined by first timer Richard Rutter to discuss his upcoming book on Web Typography, why he chose to self-publish and fund the project on Kickstarter and the role of a publisher in today’s market. Of course Rachel loves to talk about VAT (irony) so we do that and she explains why she doesn’t actually owe a million Euros to Ireland.

  6. Remembering the Everyday Developer with Rachel Andrew | The Web Ahead

    An inordinate amount of attention is being paid these days to complex tools chains, JavaScript frameworks, and the assumption that the web is an application platform. Has the web actually been taken over by this one flavor of site? Aren’t we getting off-track when we act like nothing else exists anymore? What about the everyday developer? Rachel Andrew joins Jen Simmons to discuss.

  7. ‘The most rubbish superhero ever’ with Rachel Andrew and Zoe Mickley Gillenwater on Unfinished Business

    A little later than advertised (and by “a little” I actually mean a week) I’m joined on Unfinished Business. Episode 102 by Rachel Andrew and Zoe Mickley Gillenwater.

    Despite being two experts on bleeding edge CSS layout modules, they don’t talk about CSS (much.) Instead we talk about how to keep doing when keeping going is hard and what gives us that motivation. We also discuss making big decisions including when we might want to take, or leave, a job.
