How was the menu arranged? Your answers to these questions, including all the emotional highs and lows, encompass the restaurant’s user experience (UX). However, when people use the term UX, they’re usually referring to one’s experience with a digital or technological product or service. Today, UX has grown into an important design discipline that continues to grow and evolve. How to build habit-forming products, part 2: building on the loop.

Shifting To Laravel Framework

My task was to move away from the old architecture based on PHP and server-side HTML generation, and transition to REST API. With the old approach, back-end developers were expected to know much more about the UI and visual aspects of the application. Because of this, they had to pay attention to different segments of the application, instead of focusing on their primary objective. Having the back-end API strictly separated from the UI allowed our developers to focus on the quality of their code. Also, testing API services is much easier as REST API can be verified by automated unit testing. T-Shirt: UX is Not UI. Email Testing and Email Analytics. 64-bit requirements for iOS apps.

A Front-End Developer's Ode To Specifications

In the digital world, the stakes just aren’t as high. It’s called “software” for a reason: because when it hits you in the face, it doesn’t hurt as much.
