"Yandex.Money in your application to enter uninterestingly make shtonibut"

"Yandex.Money in your application to enter uninterestingly make shtonibut"

Often the guys asked this button to change the design - in whole or in part - to make it better. We read these letters (I'm in the morning for coffee) and see that a dark theme is being asked more often than a custom unlock, but less often than a photo of your favorite coteyka on the main screen.

Problems of interfaces of ground-based transitions

Problems of interfaces of ground-based transitionsWhen it comes to the drawbacks of user interfaces, complex, visually overloaded computer programs are presented, such as the ERMS or graphics editors. But even in a simpler interface, consisting of one button and several light signals, there are many problems and shortcomings. An example of such an interface is a traffic light.

Programming with the mouse: how we escape from routine with CRM

Programming with the mouse: how we escape from routine with CRMWhat is the programming with the mouse? This is the principle of creating a user interface, which allows you to get away from writing code. Many people criticize this approach: they say that mouse programming is unworthy of a real developer, everything should be in code. But before even to draw a circle, it was necessary to know the basic syntax of the same Basic.
