What Minimalism Can Teach About Creating an MVP

Design Software Development

Minimalism.

Getting Started with Usability Testing

Application Development Design

Award-winning. Innovative. Best selling. Disruptive. Groundbreaking. If you've created desktop software or a mobile application, reviews using these words would probably get printed out and hung by your desk. You wouldn't be the only one. Each year thousands of companies employing thousands of developers launch their work in hopes of getting those same reviews and awards. Success breeds success. New customers on the fence about purchasing your product can be swayed by a review from an authoritative source.

Designers and Developers - Getting the Whole Brain Working Together

Design Software Software Development

Are you left-brained or right-brained? Modern pop psychology divides people into one of two camps - right-brained or left-brained. Right-brained people excel at: Creativity Imagination Intuition Feelings Visualization And left brained people are better at: Science Details Memorization Directions Math In Software Development On a software development project team, left-brainers are developers. Their skills primarily drive application implementation and functionality. Right-brainers are your designers. They create the look, feel, and flow of the application. A software development project needs both groups to be successful. How do we get designers and developers to better work together? We see three primary ways:

QA Crossing Over into User Experience

Application Development Design Software Development

Quality assurance is just that--a measure of the quality of the application put to test. Traditionally, a QA analyst’s job is to find bugs and flaws. However, once a quality assurance analyst is inside the application, they can’t help but form opinions on how the application is going to look and feel to the end user. Aside from bugs, they develop ideas on what enhancements are needed or what features could be improved upon.

A Primer on 3D Technology

Application Development Design

As an emerging technology, 3D offers new ways to engage your customer and communicate with colleagues. But what hardware is out there, and what are some of the limitations and benefits? 2D Screens Any typical web browser can run Web GL, allowing for 3D interactive sites, as well as the plethora of 3D video games that have been simulating 3D for a long time. By showing perspective (i.e. distance is shown by things being smaller), the 2D display system renders 3D scenes. Holographic Pyramids Holographic pyramids are cheap, easy to make systems that use any existing screen and place a pyramid of transparent material over it. Videos are rendered at four angles on the screen, so it appears to be rendered in the air. As you look through different sides, you get different angles.

Why You Need a Responsive Website

Design Responsive Website Mobile

By now, you’ve probably heard someone use the term “responsive design” to describe a mobile-friendly website. Responsive web design is about making the same content available across multiple devices—desktop computers as well as smartphones and tablets. Pull up your company’s website on your smartphone, or take Google’s mobile-friendly website test. What does it look like? Can you navigate through the site? Can you even read it? It’s easy to believe that majority of internet traffic these days comes from mobile devices. (Think mobile gaming, Facebook, newsfeeds, YouTube, etc. etc.) But what you might be surprised to hear is that, according to Google’s Multiscreen World study, 65% of searches start on a smartphone.
