New Year’s Resolutions tend to be self-focused, but what about something more altruistic. Some resolutions that touch others besides ourselves?
Now, I’m not talking about world peace, or stopping hunger (although there is nothing wrong with those). What I am talking about are things we, as UX practitioners, can do to improve the the projects and products we work on.
We should be more concerned about our industry as a whole.
Some ideas to get us started:
- design for mobile- not just as an afterthought. Mobile may be the primary interface sooner than you think and it would do us well to treat it with the priority it deserves
- accessibility for all- there is a lot of talk of accessibility & 508 compliance…not as much action. I’m looking at you, Apple!
- HTML5 use- why are we still using a mish-mash of technologies and workarounds when this beautiful code is just waiting to tie all our CSS and interactivity together in an easy-to-read format?
