Back from the summer, with a nice little collection of links we've found useful and informative. A good mixture of current affairs regarding tech, design, and relevant articles.
- Grids. A delicious, almost sounds like edible fast-food for developers. Here’s a site about different types of grids, and about books about grids. Mmmm.
- Windows 95 laid the ground for a lot of the interface components we still see verywhere today. Here’s Socket 3 with a nerdy article about it.
Design of the week
- Twitter probably has a bunch of designers. Probably dozens, if not hundreds. That may sound cuckoo, since it’s hard to pinpoint any noticable change to their design over the years. But, rest assured, there’s been a lot of change. Here’s a deep look at a few recent design changes.
Tech of the week
- Reform.app is another no-code product, making setting up forms a breeze.
- liveblocks.io is a service providing the needed infrastructure to create collaborative solutions. Interresting, but also raises a bunch of questions. Check out Next.js Conf_ for a nice example where such a layer is added. You’ll be able to see all visitors’ mouse cursors live.
- A pretty interesting widget we would imagine quite a few businesses gaining a lot from. CommandBar is a quick setup search bar of sorts, but with superpowers. It gives users onboarding budgets, quick actions and powerful search.
