Right now, I am very backed-up on my reading list that's why I am going to try a dedicated listing for a weekly reading habit. These are either tutorials, self-help articles, inspirational, tech/science publications or news. So, come with me and lets get started with some brain inducing euphoria of information.
Designers devote a ton of time and effort ensuring that user interface (UI) elements operate within a set of constraints. We set type, adjust alignment and spacing, and use color theory—among many other conventions....
This would be a great started on my plans for polishing my design skill and Invision never fails me with regards to published UI/UX topic.
In the past 5 or so years, an interesting phenomenon happened. As they learned about UX, a lot of people realized, “Oh, I’ve been doing that already,” and added the label to their job title. Sometimes they were correct, but other times they weren’t...
There is some pattern with regards to my reading habits right now and its eveidently my crush~ing on design methodologies, so the topic present here will be both an eye opener and a schooling of my current capacity as a designer.
We all want to find our passions. We all want to do work that engages us and makes us happy.
The trick, of course, is figuring out whether what we're doing is genuinely fulfilling... or serves to feed a need, fill a hole, or just promote the greater glory of us.
A direct hit to my current psyche and a very spot-on topic for what I've been feeling right now, this will be a great read. (note: this is an old article)
It sounds utterly nonsensical — learn while you’re unconscious?! — but the idea of sleep learning has thrived for centuries. Eerily described in Brave New World by Aldous Huxley in the 1930s, sleep was once thought to be a subliminal state similar to hypnosis, in which the person is susceptible to messages from the outside world.
Brain food - something to think about on your day-to-day content struggles - for every problem, why not sleep-it-off? Maybe when you wake it, it would've solved itself already. (Hmmm, this idea makes my mind jiggle with excitement)
I had been staying away from ECMAScript 6 (ES6) for quite a while now despite the offerings of advanced features and syntactic sugars by ES6. Back then, ES6 was still in the draft stage. I did not want to devote my time into some fancy features that might suddenly be yank out.
Microsoft and Canonical are, according to a reliable rumour out of ZDNet, working together to bring Ubuntu to Windows 10 desktops.
The title speaks for itself, but a rumour is just a rumour. Hopefully something juicy will pop-out from this idea.
7. Watch Paint Dry: How I got a game on the Steam Store without anyone from Valve ever looking at it.
TL;DR — I was responsible for Watch paint dry. Getting caught was part of my plan. It’s just a prank, bro!
This shows that, not every organizational structure is perfect - heck the guy published a pseudo-game on Steam and the guys who are incharge didnt have any idea until he himself reported it.
So, here it is - my reading list. Some have their music playlist, but me? I have my own reading list (that for a very obvious reason piles up each and every time) come with me and lets enjoy some brain food.
