Introducing the DOTNET SDK 2.0 Development Blog Series at Couchbase

by jmorris 20. January 2014 10:39

New blog introducing a series of posts I will be doing on the design and development of the new Couchbase .NET SDK 2.0 client at couchbase.com: http://blog.couchbase.com/introducing-couchbase-net-sdk-20-development-blog-series

The first post is a pre-cursor to rest of the series and I go over some of the history, motivation, goals and objectives, features and finally a bit of the high-level design that I will be writing about over the coming months as the new client is developed. This is intended to be an evolving, interactive series so feel free to drop a comment if you see something that you think can be improved upon.

Design Fail

by jmorris 28. October 2010 13:59

While I am not much of a front end developer or much less a designer,  the design elements of some sites are so poor, that even I shake my head in disbelief. While doing some research for a future post on refactoring and method groups, I came across this site: www.thedesignmethodgroup.com

Note that the site is all flash and you navigate with that teeny, tiny little menu thing!  As you click the on the menu item squares the flash app moves another layer into focus which contains quotes from various famous people. The problem is, WTF does the company even do? It took me awhile navigating through this maze to find out they are a marketing company…apparently the focus on “creating customers”. Maybe the should focus on “communicating with customers” first.

BTW, here is the “Clients Page”:

Is it any wonder?
