Every week I post a lot of my daily readings about Web, UI and UX Design, mobile design, webdesign tools and useful resources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.
This week’s selection: AMP, Facebook Instant Articles and Apple News, decision process, designing with Sketch and Zeplin, Responsive typography, BEM, CSS shorthand syntax, psychology and user experience, font-icon performances, browser storage and user testing. There are also a few CSS, progressive web apps and accessibility tutorials and a repository for meetup video talks.
You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
Your Guide to Mobile Publishing Formats: AMP, Facebook Instant Articles, and Apple News. So basically we went from mdot sites to responsive. Then we added crap to those responsive sites and made them unusable and slow. So to avoid slow and bad UX we nicely offer our content to closed platforms instead of building performant user friendly sites on our owns. Sorry, I just don’t get it :/
