These tablet experiences suck

I love my tablet. Until I was given one a couple of years ago, I never thought I'd like tablets as much as I do now. But that's not to say there aren't a few things that annoy me - and it's not the fault of the device. Fair warning, if you're not interested in a self-indulgent venting of certain tablet design 'faux pas' then move on. Otherwise, let me enlighten you as to why it's time to put an end to these all-too-familiar scenarios.

The holy trinity of a successful project

This week I had cause to remind a couple of colleagues of the 'iron triangle' - a representation of the relationship between the forces that combine to constrain any project.

Bootstrap for Project Managers (aka Dummies)

Bootstrap has been around for a few years now, and everything I'd read about it told me what a fantastic front-end framework it is. That everything is faster and easier and it can save web developers heaps of time. Unfortunately, that's also about all I knew about Bootstrap. Ignorance is bliss, right?

It seems that everyone thinks they need an app without really understanding why!

Flipping out - a yearn for simplicity

Am I sentimental? Yes. And I'm right, sometimes. Maybe mobile phones still have a long way to go before we've designed the perfect interface. Meanwhile, everything old is new again, just you wait and see.

Why you need to truly experience your customer experience; and not just talk about it

My experience with Telstra International Roaming is a case study of why you not only need to map your customer journeys and experiences, though you need to experience them for yourself... and observe real customers doing the same.

Metrics and benchmarks for startups: pity they probably don’t apply to you

Truth be known, I was so excited to stumble upon these numbers that I started writing my blog before I finished reading the original article.
