There’s never a better time to work in software. Developers and designers are among the most desired people on the market.

How to improve your site’s UX

Let’s face it, it’s tough to be a web designer today. You have to stand up in front of the class and let people pick apart the thing you spent 10 hours on the night before.

But what if you can really support your designs by actual data and feedback, directly from your users and visitors, ultimately improving the overall experience.

By combining both Analytics and Feedback tools, Hotjar gives you the ‘big picture’ of how to improve your …

HelloSign: The Industry’s Fastest eSignature API Integration

My favorite kind of software products are the ones that very clearly make life simpler. Being able to legally sign a document by clicking a button in an email and squiggling my mouse to make my signature is definitely one of those things.

You can provide that to your users with HelloSign! You can set up your documents there (it supports all the formats you’d need, like PDF, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, etc) and start collecting the signatures you need …

Web Hosting with Media Temple

I find Media Temple to be a perfect fit for a mostly-front-end person like me. I’m not an idiot, I’m pretty experienced with web work, but I don’t really wanna be in charge of setting up and configuring a server. That’s a specialized set of knowledge that I think is well suited to the people that own, sell, and support servers. (I think that would be a pretty good career choice, FWIW, kids.) That’s what Media Temple does in spades. …

Create and Share Forms with Wufoo

Designing web forms can be tough all by itself. There is a lot of markup to get right to make sure it’s accessible and has good UX. There is a lot of CSS (properties you may not use every day) to wrestle control and make sure things look good.

Wufoo’s got you covered there. It’s almost trivially easy to build forms (even quite complex ones), and good design, good UX, and good accessibility come along for the ride.

But what …

Legally Binding Electronic Signatures with eversign

There are few things more obnoxiously tedious than being asked to sign a document over email, where they tell you to print it, sign it, scan it, and email it back. One time I Photoshopped my signature onto a document, and they were able to tell somehow and made me go through the whole rigamarole instead.

We’re working with highly sophisticated computers here, can’t I sign this thing with the web somehow? Yes, you can! As long as the company …

Come Learn and Take In Big Ideas at An Event Apart

I’m just back from An Event Apart Seattle, and it was fantastic. High five to y’all I got to run into there. Lots of big moments happen at An Event Apart. Microsoft took the opportunity to announce they are officially working on getting CSS grid into Edge, meaning full on cross browser compatibility for that, coming soon.

Ethan Marcotte was there, and before giving his excellent talk about patterns in design, told us that that very stage was the first …
