Dev Diary Entry, 10th November 2020
How do you get better at something? Through practise. I’ve realised that I read a lot about web development but don’t spend that much time building websites. I read widely about the latest web trends, but using the tech that I read about is more valuable (if I can find the time of course!). So, more CodePen demos, short blog posts and create-react-app tests are the order of the day.
- Which Way Round Should OK and Cancel Buttons Go? - I wrote a blog post about how I decided where to position the OK and Cancel buttons in a modal dialog. I’m doing much more UI work nowadays and minutae like this have become incredibly important to me!
- State-Switch Controls: The Infamous Case of the Mute Button - I have exactly the same problems with badly designed toggle buttons: is it on or off?
- How content creates content - One piece of content can create loads more content. Lots of inspiration and tips for tech bloggers here.
