Free eBook: Data-Informed Product Design

http://www.oreilly.com/pub/cpc/1220

 

Designers must understand user needs to create any product. But what type of data should you look at? In her new book, Data-Informed Product Design, Pamela Pavliscak outlines a way to use data of all kinds to understand the relationship between people and technology. Generally speaking, big data is quantitative; it gives you the what, where, and when, while “thick data” provides the qualitative perspective—the how and the why.

 

Up until now, there hasn't been much information on how to combine quantitative big data with qualitative thick data. That's where this report can help. If you're involved in any aspect of product design, this is indispensable reading. It's useful, and we're pleased to offer it to you, for free! Get the free ebook now.

Design Sprint: A fast start to creating a great digital product

http://www.oreilly.com/pub/cpc/1221

October 20 | 10:00am PT | Banfield, Lombardo, & Wax

 

The Design Sprint is the first, and for some projects the most significant, phase of a design thinking process. It gets the entire product design and development team on the same page, reduces the risk of downstream mistakes, and generates vision-lead goals for the team to measure their success. Join Richard Banfield, C. Todd Lombardo, and Trace Wax as they explain why and how Design Sprints work and how you can use Design Sprints to enhance your own design process.

61: The Return of Bosonic

Summary

Raphaël Rougeron (@goldoraf), one of the Web Components pioneers, along with his team created the Bosonic Project some while back. It was a very different approach to working with Web Components than x-tag and Polymer and it involved a required build step to create Web Components as close to specs as possible with minimal abstractions at runtime. The approach gained a small but respectable following and unfortunately was overshadowed by Polymer Project, the Web Component library by Google. During that time Raphaël began to lose faith in Web Components and went through many personal trials. Now he has been inspired to revisit Bosonic and breathe new life into the project. Let’s welcome the return of Bosonic!

60: Offline First

Summary

The Offline First Heroes, Jan Lehnardt (@janl), John Kleinschmidt (@jkleinsc), Alex Russell (@slightlylate), and Jake Archibald (@jaffathecake) join forces to chat on why web developers should be designing and building with offline capabilities in mind from the beginning. From emerging standards like ServiceWorker to well thought out web frameworks like Hood.ie & UpUp, there are many differnt approaches and reasons why we would develop with an offline first mentality. There are so many gotchas and so many pro tips that have come out of the lessons learned by these offline web evangelists. For better or worse the technical marvels of development in this engineering arena are hard to visualize demo much like the features of good security or performance. Offline is vital and integral to the web just as security and performance are vand it should not be an afterthought in our designs.

58: Scalable Vector Graphics

Summary

 

Sara Soueidan (@SaraSoueidan) has been traveling the world talking about SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) over the past year. Since then, we’ve learned a lot more about the power of this declarative graphical language. Now that many projects have dropped support for Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) and older mobile browsers, SVG has become a staple for non-bitmap art, visualization, and other graphical web development. Sara has recently shared many of the ‘gotchas’ and best practices in talks at Beyond Tellerand in Düsseldorf & Microsoft Edge Web Summit. Together, we take a closer look at how developers can leverage her advice in our web projects today.
