UI Design

When to use me: Use I, me, my, or mine when the user is interacting with the product, like clicking a button or selecting a checkbox. But only add these words if you absolutely need to for clarity.
When to use you: Use you or your when your product is asking questions, giving instructions, or describing things to the user. Just imagine what a personal assistant might say.

Things Web

  • Content Security Policy Reference — “The new Content-Security-Policy HTTP response header helps you reduce XSS risks on modern browsers by declaring what dynamic resources are allowed to load via a HTTP Header.”

Digital nomads

  • FlyOnward lets you rent flight tickets with your name on them to use as proof of onward travel plans when you travel abroad.

Show off

  • After a little bit more than a year of remote hacking Trint, a product I’ve been contributing to with my UI design/dev skillz, is becoming a grown-up product, available to everybody after a successful launch earlier this month.
