Style may seem like an afterthought – the frosting on the cake that is your website. But there are actually some important usability factors related to website design and style. A recent project for PINT’s long-term client, Kyocera, illustrates exactly this point.

Today’s Post is introduced by Thomas Powell, CEO of PINT, Inc.
Outside of PINT and my other firms, I spend a fair amount of time at the University of California – San Diego (UCSD) Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department. I have taught there for almost twenty years: mostly Web technologies but also programming language theory and software engineering. One of my favorite activities over the years has been mentoring students in various independent study classes. During this time, I have worked with students on:
- Usability-focused Web analytics
- Bot detection and defense of content scraping
- Anti-rigging mechanisms for review systems
- A variety of Web frameworks and patterns
Unfortunately, since most of these efforts were from non-publishing undergrads, only a few people got to benefit from them. So starting this quarter, I’ve decided to surface some of this work and encourage sharing since there may be lessons and inspiration of value to others. Read on to see the first installment in this new series, about managing virtual teams.

As a result, UX professionals generally appreciate anything that makes it easier to stay on top of the latest things happening in our area of expertise. To help this cause, I’ve put together a list of some favorite UX tools and resources of late.
