The Changing Face of Web Design in 2018

Inspired Magazine Inspired Magazine – creativity & inspiration daily One of the interesting recent developments in web design trends is actually the trend away from trends… or in other word what is happening is a kind of regression to simpler ways, at least from those in the know. On the other side of the coin, there’s a big shift happening in certain types of corporate sites, especially some British and American media sites, where there’s a tendency to overload pages with so much extraneous content that it can severely impact on the ability of the user to see the content they actually arrived to see. If the first two paragraphs sound hopeless tangled, well that’s a very succinct allegory for the state of web development in 2018… tangled. It’s a problem we need to sort out, because it won’t be good for anyone if web standards continue to slip. We’ll…

Exploring Data with Serverless and Vue: Automatically Update GitHub Files With Serverless Functions

I work on a large team with amazing people like Simona Cotin, John Papa, Jessie Frazelle, Burke Holland, and Paige Bailey. We all speak a lot, as it’s part of a developer advocate’s job, and we’re also frequently asked where we’ll be speaking. For the most part, we each manage our own sites where we list all of this speaking, but that’s not a very good experience for people trying to explore, so I made a demo that makes it easy to see who’s speaking, at which conferences, when, with links to all of this information. Just for fun, I made use of three.js so that you can quickly visualize how many places we’re all visiting. You can check out the live demo here, or explore the code on GitHub. In this tutorial, I’ll run through how we set up the globe by making use of a Serverless function that…

How to Display Locations on a Map in Drupal 8

The Geolocation Field Module allows us to store geographical locations (e.g. addresses) as value pairs (latitude, longitude). These values can be rendered in a map with the help of a map marker. Many map markers in a map are useful in a wide variety of cases, for example to show graphically different offices of a bank in a city or to show the cities/countries of a concert tour of your favorite band. The possibilities are endless. In this tutorial we are going to learn how to show the markers in a map of four tourist Attractions in New York City using the Geolocation Field Module and Views.

Rethinking Real Estate Tech: An Exploration

Ask a homeowner what it’s like to buy a home, and they’ll probably tell you about the agonies they’ve faced. Our experiences of the travails of home buying – and the ways digital technology helped and complicated the process for us – prompted our most recent exploration: From Hassle to Harmony. In it, we develop designs that we wish we’d had when on the hunt. Buying a home is regularly cited as one of the most stressful experiences people encounter. It’s a significant life change up there with marriage, job changes, and having children. Home buying tends to be an emotional rodeo, especially in competitive markets, and especially for first-time buyers. There’s the stress of being a beginner, for one, having to learn industry terms and processes so that you can be smart about due diligence periods and escrows and inspections. Then there’s the stress of finding a good realtor, someone you…

How I left behind my silicon dream for a saner place to work

It all started in September 2015. I had recently graduated from DePaul University in Chicago, where I had studied Information Technology, and I was flying out to San Francisco to join the ranks of Silicon Valley — the promised land for any twenty something tech hopeful. “All the biggest and best companies are out there. That’s where I want to be,” I told myself.I always knew I’d be working in tech. I had my first computer when I was about four years old, and I vividly remember the look of MS-DOS as I watched my father install a Star Wars X-Wing simulator on it. I’d always been fascinated by computers, and finding out how they worked. It only made sense that I’d make that my life profession and move out to Silicon Valley.I planned on being in the Bay Area for two weeks. After my first week, I knew it wasn’t for me. I…
