2Design Web was established in 2002. Early days had us build from scratch a proprietary website content management system called Siteblocks® and it “filled a need” within the business community. At the time, WordPress, Joomla, and other open-source content management systems were not as trusted and popular as they are today. Today 2Design Web assesses the needs of our clients and their wish lists to provide the right toolsets producing the best online presence. It could be a CMS tool like WordPress, a custom one of a kind website, integrating an application like a full photogallery, blog, conference app...

A Responsive Material Design App With Polymer Starter Kit

One upcoming technology that represents a big leap forward in making the web a mature application platform isweb components. From a high-level perspective,web components will enable better composability, reusability and interoperability of front-end web application elements by providing a common way to write components in HTML.

Getting Started With Wearables: How To Plan, Build And Design

If a user of your product is buying a smartwatch tomorrow and your app is not compatible with it or your notifications can’t be triggered from there, you might frustrate them. If you have a website or an app today,it’s time to start planning support for wearable devices. In this article, we’ll review the platforms available today, what we can do on each of them, how to plan the architecture, and how to develop apps or companion services for these new devices.

Getting Started With Wearables: How To Plan, Build And Design

Do you remember the shoe phone from Get Smart? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you are probably too young (or I’m too old). (You canGoogle itnow. Just go; I’ll wait here in this tab.) The shoe phone we saw on TV was followed by many other wearable devices on TV, such as the ones on Knight Rider, The Flintstones, James Bond and Dick Tracy. Many years later, we can say that wearable devices are here and ready to use. We, as designers and developers, need tobe ready to develop successful experiencesfor them.

Web Development Reading List #107

Lately, web development has become verycomplex. People being full-stack developers often complain to me that they can’t care about all these cool things in front-end development. People doing front-end still complain about having too few things to control the website, make it faster, more reliable.

Dark World Map

Thisgrowing gapworries me about the future of usual websites. For big web applications and big websites, it’s great to have all the options and a dedicated front-end performance engineer. But what about an average website? A simple website for a painter can't cost thousands of dollars.

Building Web Applications With Make

Most web developers use abuild toolof some sort nowadays. I’m not refering to continuous integration software likeJenkins CI(a very popular build system), but the lower-level software it uses to actually acquire dependencies and construct your applications with.

Building Software With Make

There is a dizzying array of options to choose from: Apache Ant(XML-based), Rake (Ruby-based), Grunt (JS-based), Gulp (JS-based), Broccoli (JS-based), NPM (JS-based), Good ol’ shell scripts (although no real orchestration around it). The build tool I want to look at in more detail here though is the granddaddy of them all: Make.

Discussions about design trends and visual style are often very subjective and they rarely provide actionable, valuable takeaways. Nothing beats a conversation about what worked and what didn’t work in actual real-life projects and what decisions were made along the way. That's exactly what we're setting off to explore in Oxford — accompanied by a lot oflearning and networkingin the beautiful pathways and gardens of legendary Oxford.
