Designers and developers work hand in hand to create beautiful products with UI components in code and UI libraries in the design system. In design, these UI libraries might be composed of components or symbols from Sketch, Figma, or Adobe XD. In code, these components might be built in React, React Native, or Preact.

The designers need to transfer their ideas or designs of a digital product for development. Tools, such as Zeplin enable this handover, while also supporting design tools like Sketch.

In this article, we will be guiding you through how the winning combination of Zeplin and Sketch can improve the transition of design towards development. This is also a get-started guide of using Zeplin to share your design assets made in Sketch. …

“When you are not left with any options, you start to look at the cons from a newer, more positive perspective.”

Before you question the placement of this quote, take a minute to relate this to remote working… that’s right, it fits right in.

As an offshore agency, remote working has worked wonders for us. When we got started almost 2 decades back, there were some communication gaps, scoping issues, and missed deadlines but guess what? …

This article is an assessment and comparison of the popular content management systems WordPress, Drupal, and Craft. We’ll dig into each CMS platform’s features, ease of use, the types of businesses that are best suited to the platform, and more. We’ll also walk you through the use case scenario of each CMS and will help you understand which one could be right for your business and goals.

Before we explore the nuances of each CMS, let us quickly introduce the three stalwarts in the CMS arena.

WordPress

WordPress is an extremely versatile CMS that facilitates users (even non-developers) to create feature-rich websites and ecommerce portals. It is completely customizable, mobile-optimized, and SEO friendly. It’s also open-source, making it completely free, redistributable, and offers unlimited validity. …

First things first, yes there are no new features in this update! There are several upgrades and a few eliminations which we believe are worth discussing.

So here’s our take on the all-new React 17.

This new version comes after a long wait of nearly two years. We believe that there are a lot of improvements vis-a-vis the previous version. The focus is largely on the gradual updates to this version and the future ones.

So, let’s see what all they are!

Changes in event delegation

The React 17 update eases the nesting of applications that are built using different React versions. A lot of conflicts were seen when many versions of React are being used together. With this update, event handlers will not be attached at document levels. …

Traditionally, configuration management was a manual task, undertaken by the Systems Administrator to carefully document the state of the system.

However, the industry has changed radically after the introduction of new automation tools, and developments in cloud computing and DevOps.

Managing the configuration of your VM (virtual machine)/server with automation tools is quite mainstream now. It is fascinating to see the automation reaching beyond VM and into the network to control the firewalls, the load balancers, and the rest of your infrastructure.

You can now automate and deploy an entire network and application in production without taking on any manual work to slow the process. …

There’s a popular user experience quote: “A user interface is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it’s not that good.” While clever, that statement is far from the truth.

We agree that user interfaces shouldn’t be complicated. On the other hand, you can’t expect a new user to understand a new interface without any direction. That’s where user onboarding flows come into play.

This also stands true for the existing users who need directions to understand an updated interface or a new feature.

In this article, we will discuss those onboarding UIs that will help both new and existing users understand features — breaking the myth at the same time that user onboarding begins and ends with the first experience. …

2020 is almost at a close and it would be a safe bet to say that out of all the technologies, Cloud surged the most.

Some may believe that they may have figured out the Cloud completely. However, there still are some underlying issues that need to be addressed. Let’s have a look at what needs fixing:

Cost management

Most businesses would agree that cloud providers keep changing their billing practices, adding unwarranted complexity to what is supposed to be a fairly simple thing.

When you look at all the possible configurations it’s easy to get lost in the services enlisted in the invoice by your provider. …

Incessant scrolling while using an application is perceived as a flaw on both mobile and desktop. To address this concern, a shift to horizontal scrolling of elements is in trend now.

We are seeing an increase in designs using non-breaking lists that are scrolled horizontally for more content especially on mobile, where horizontal space is limited.

On the other hand, vertical scrolling works as a mainstay of virtually every digital interaction you’ll come across.

A few years ago, the users used to remain reluctant to move sideways through content. However, the users have evolved since then and are more receptive to the idea of scrolling in both directions. It is more preferable to scroll through vis-a-vis clicking multiple pages or screens. …
