GDevelop: Open source game development software to create HTML5 and native game without programming. Bring your ideas to life! GDevelop allows beginners as well as experienced game developers to create awesome games without programming The software is bundled with several examples and templates HTML Wireframes For the first few years of my career, I didn’t know that wireframes existed. It wasn’t until I started working at a larger agency that I first encountered a strange new black-and-white InDesign world, where multiple rounds of 100+ page PDFs were generated and presented to clients. While a lot of great thinking goes into these highly-detailed wireframes, the actual artifact creates a lot of issues. Problems with High-Fidelity Static Wireframes “When someone hands you a flyer, it’s like they’re saying ‘here, you throw this away’.”
50+ incredible freebies for web designers, May 2015 We’re constantly amazed at the generosity of designers and developers who release exciting, inspiring products out to the web design community on a daily basis. Not only do these impressive designers speed up our work with more free resources than we can use, but they drive us on to more and more ambitious work of our own. Every month we collect together the best free resources for web designers and developers, and this month there truly is something for everyone; we’ve got great icons, UI kits, and mockups; as well as scripts, tools, and extensions. Usability Body of Knowledge The card sorting method is used to generate information about the associations and grouping of specific data items. Participants in a card sort are asked to organize individual, unsorted items into groups and may, depending on the technique, also provide labels for these groups. In a user-centered design process, it is commonly used when developing a site architecture but has also been applied to developing workflows, menus, toolbars, and other elements of system design. Sorting and grouping have long been studied within psychology and the research dates back at least to the 1950s. Numerous, non-peer reviewed descriptions, case studies, and blogs have been written in the last several years on the technique and its use in the user-centered design process, but only a few peer reviewed articles on the technique have been published and little is known of its validity or reliability as a means of directly producing a useful and usable architecture.

BYU engineer Dah-Jye Lee isn’t interested in that development, but he has managed to eliminate the need for humans in the field of object recognition. Lee has created an algorithm that can accurately identify objects in images or video sequences without human calibration. “In most cases, people are in charge of deciding what features to focus on and they then write the algorithm based off that,” said Lee, a professor of electrical and computer engineering. “With our algorithm, we give it a set of images and let the computer decide which features are important.” Not only is Lee’s genetic algorithm able to set its own parameters, but it also doesn’t need to be reset each time a new object is to be recognized—it learns them on its own.
