We love building great products, but a product would be completely useless if it is not properly designed for the people who are meant to use it. This lack of efficiency impacts the user experience (UX) of the solution. But, how can we achieve a good UX when developing a product? Is there a way that we can measure user performance objectively?
By trying to answer these questions, we realised there aren’t any cheap and easy-to-use tools ready for any member of our team. So, since we have some experience in things like building software, we decided to develop our own tool.
In this post, we would like to share how it was built, in order to get fast and detailed feedback on user experience and be able to provide support to a highly iterative agile development practice.
I recently attended the 2017 AmsterdamJS Conference 2017, where I met Ingrid Epure. I would like to share some useful tips from her workshop, The Art of Keeping Your Application Safe.
Recently, we have built out a cool interactive map displaying the payments and capabilities coverage of Ebury for our corporate website using CARTO.
We will walk you through all the stages of development that we made and point you at the source code of our project GitHub.
By applying the micro-services philosophy, we decided to develop it in a separate project, so we began to analyse the tech stack to be used.
We took a look at tools like Google Maps or Leaflet, which are great for displaying maps, but it was not easy to display the data in the way we wanted. We then played around with D3.js, a great library for visualising data. However, it was not straightforward to implement a map with standard controls such as zoom or the drag feature.
Finally, we found CARTO that offered the best functions out of all of the options which made it super easy to create this map.
It’s been 2 months since we travelled to Paris in order to attend the dotCSS and the dotJS, both part of the dotConferences series of developer events.
We would like to share with you what we have learnt and to do that, we have created a presentation in HTML, CSS and JS using all the new and cool techniques that were presented in the conference!
Do you remember the last post where we talked about how easy it is to create global notifications with Marionette?
You’ll be pleased to know that we’ve developed a plugin using the solution we shared.
One of the things almost any web application in the world has to implement is a way to display notifications.
Global notifications allow to users to know what is happening while they’re using an application, which is particularly helpful after performing an action (did the action end successfully or did something go wrong?)
