As engineers, I believe the way we approach a problem is as important as the code we write. This is especially relevant in the context of UI engineering where design is such a vital element.
Unfortunately, it seems quite hard to find good content about everything that happens around us and inside our heads when we are building user interfaces. This is what The Layout is about.
My intent is to create a space for high quality content discussing the principles, mindset, and practices that I believe shape the craft of UI engineering. It is meant to be a shared space with many voices—so, expect some awesome guest authors.
I’ve just posted the very first article, Mind the Gap. My plan is to publish a new article every other week-ish. For now, subscribe to the RSS feed or simply follow The Layout on Twitter or Google+ to get future updates.
I really hope you enjoy it!
