How to improve communication and collaboration between developers and designers

How to improve communication and collaboration between developers and designers

Communication is important. Hence, we are developing DebugMe. In a relationship, in traffic, at work. The more closely you deal with someone, the more important it becomes. And the more difficult it is. Stress, important and hurried decisions, snotty clients and less than understanding bosses don’t help, and if you don’t have at least one of those, I envy you for your job.

As far as web development and design goes, if you work in the field, you are probably well familiar with the communication issues that can arise. Often with no malicious intent, one or two misunderstandings can have huge ramifications a little down the road. Now, just complaining about communicative difficulties won’t improve anything, it’ll only make it worse by causing ill will on both sides.

So, here’s some steps to improve the communication and collaboration between developers and designers.

Web Application Testing: A Quick-Glance 7-Step Guide

Web Application Testing: A Quick-Glance 7-Step Guide

Before delving into the different types of web application testing, it’s important to understand what web application testing is and why it is a vital procedure for any web application that is brought to market.

What is Web Application Testing?

Web application testing is ensuring a web application is thoroughly checked for potential bugs before it is moved into a production environment or made live. Just take a look at the Digital XRaid guys picture below. Aspects taken into account during this procedure include web application security, the web application’s accessibility and usability for an entire range of potential users, how it handles traffic, and its functionality. Without ensuring these things before pushing a web application to production, it can obviously make the company/brand look bad having a buggy, semi-working web application which then makes the developers look at least semi-professional to the company and other potential customers who are then less likely to hire the said developers.

Enhancing content with JavaScript

Enhancing content with JavaScript

There’s a million ways to make content look good. Ideally, it’ll be able to shine because it’s well-written, witty and interesting…but we all know that’s not always the case. Or even all that often. So instead, it needs a little help with grabbing the customer’s or visitor’s attention.

Fortunately for the clients, web designers tend to be good at that. Fancy colours, layouts and graphics – they all work, but they have one ‘flaw’ – they are static. Good for a solid foundation, static websites will only get you so far. Users are used to motion, animation and effects on the web by now, and have come to expect it in some regards.

Lucky you, because employing them is easier than you might think. While you can, of course, do simple animations with key frames and CSS (which depending on the size and impact of your project can be the perfect solution!), but if you want to go the extra mile towards something really special, you need something else.

Something you probably already have, and know well. JavaScript.
