    Todays read: BBC Glow 

    “Ouh, shiny! BBC’s Glow is finally out”

    I found this article in ajaxian.com. Read the article here.

    This article is about a new JavaScript framework recently open sourced by BBC. BBC Glow. BBC uses this framework in their websites. It’s too early for me to say whether this is a cool stuff to work with. Anyways you can try to make your hands dirty with “Glow”. Have a nice “Glow” time.


    What is BBC Glow?
    Glow is a JavaScript library which aims to make working with JavaScript and the DOM easier. It tries to do this by abstracting common tasks, hiding cross-browser issues, and providing a set of user interface widgets.

    Tips – Web UI Design 

    Smashing Magazine planet-ajaxian-small

    I’ve been a huge fan of “simple web design” & usability. And I’m a regular reader of Smashing Magazine & Ajaxian. Today I got a chance to walk thru a couple of very nice articles – “12 Useful Techniques For Good User Interface Design” & “10 Useful Web Application Interface Techniques” in Smashing Magazine.

    More and more applications these days are migrating to the Web. Without platform constraints or installation requirements, the software-as-a-service model looks very attractive. Web application interface design is, at its core, Web design; however, its focus is mainly on function. To compete with desktop applications, Web apps must offer simple, intuitive and responsive user interfaces that let their users get things done with less effort and time.

    In the past we didn’t cover web applications the way we should and now it’s time to take a closer look at some useful techniques and design solutions that make web-applications more user-friendly and more beautiful. This article presents the first part of our extensive research on design patterns and useful design solutions in modern web applications. Below you’ll find a collection of 10 useful interface design techniques and best practices used in many successful web-applications.

    Have a nice read.
