We are seeing more and more Web Designers or Graphic Designers taking the leap to User Experience Designers.
User Experience Specialist is already a well-established role itself.
With the focus we put today on user experience, developers see their own work making the shift from fully technical to user-oriented.


But why aren't we yet talking about User Experience Developers?

Do developers have what it takes to ensure a good user experience?

In practice, it seems most of the developers are not prepared or even “designed” to make a difference in optimizing apps and websites for real users.

Now let's imagine a stadium where a football match is being played, a goal is scored and the game goes on as if nothing happened: players don't take time to enjoy the moment, public has no reaction.

Small things that can make the difference in social media strategy

We might say that social media plugins are for web what the little black dress is for a woman's wardrobe: everybody owns at least one, but not all know how to shine wearing it.  

So, just like in fashion, let's look at the best in class and get some inspiration.  
(before continuing there is a small observation to be done: we do not have in mind big brands with notori...
