August 2, 2016 — React is becoming a popular choice of JS framework for building interactive features into custom WordPress themes. But why is this? And what exactly is it good for?

I’ll also give an introduction to how React works, show a little code and tell you a little about my journey into the realms of amongst other things npm, webpack, linting and flux.
July 29, 2016 — UXという言葉、もう馴染みのあるものになりましたか？まだ取っ付きにくいでしょうか。もしくはうんざりしているでしょうか。本は読んだけどどう仕事に活かしていいかわからない、やってみたけどあまり会社の体制に合わない・・・そんな風に思っている方もいらっしゃるかもしれません。
July 4, 2016 — Advertising can be enjoyable, entertaining, moving and even beautiful. Why is it such an awful experience online?

July 1, 2016 — This presentation aims to give you a fresh perspective at WordPress plugin UI and ways to improve it. WordPress plugins often fail to provide elementary guidance and comprehensive communication via UI, thus causing unnecessary support requests and bad karma not only for their makers, but for the WordPress user experience in general. In this talk we take a close look at human reactions and emotions related to plugins and their presence in “WP Admin”, as well as good practices plugin developers can rely upon in order to create a comfortable and more “human” experience for the people using their products.

June 24, 2016 — You can’t always predict who will use your products, or what emotional state they’ll be in when they do. By identifying stress cases and designing with compassion in mind, you’ll create experiences that support more of your users, more of the time.
May 28, 2016 — Not sure what user experience (UX) is? (Neither am I). Or whether it matters to you? (It TOTALLY does!) Or why it’s important? (Let’s find out!). I’m not a UX expert, but I don’t think you have to be: we should all be thinking about how people interact with the things that we make. Let’s take a really (really!) simple web app, tear it apart, and realise that UX is hard, very important, and definitely worth thinking about. Expect tips, links, resources, door handles, cars, small children, and possibly a little WordPress.
