Perhaps you have also been there. After pushing your first project online, you wonder why your website’s different pages don’t appear in the search engines like Google. It’s as if only the homepage existed.
For our site's pages to appear in our target users' searches, we need to help Google index our site. And for that, one of the things we must learn is what’s a sitemap, why we should create one, and how to do it.
When you are in a new city, you‘ll most probably need to use your maps application to know which streets to take to…
I used to build technical blogs where I wrote articles to help others understand anything I had struggled with before. It’s quite probable that if you write technical posts, you’ll need to display some code.
When you write here in medium, you can use their cool editor with which you can do
things like thisto display code, but when you code your website from scratch, you might need a solution for that — unless you want to wrap all those code snippets in divs and style them yourself in your CSS...
We want to design and prototype an app for kids to learn a new language while having fun. It must resemble a summer camp experience, but it needs to happen online and bring both learning and fun.
How to translate all those personal interactions and experiences from a summer camp into a mobile app?
We prepare an interview for both kids and parents to start the user research. While we get the results, we sit down to plan our strategy, tools, and steps, basically, our process.
We can’t forget that we will need testers who will test our prototype in…
html5 history mode.
When building an app using a framework, sometimes you need to configure some routes. If you are working with frameworks like AngularJs or VueJs, you might get a free hashbang (
#!)in the URL of your routes, which can be annoying.
This means we will get
#!/myUrl, when what we want
A way to solve this problem is by setting a html5 history mode in your routes file. You might find this solved on the web, for example, in this post in StackOverflow. However, when I implemented it in my code, I faced problems. …
After working as a Frontend developer for years, I felt there was always something missing. That’s why, long story short, I decided I needed to give my career a spin and enrolled myself in some Design training.
That’s also why I found myself in front of a paper about to try my first Notetaking one day. Those were my first steps into the Design world.
The first part of this exercise was to watch a TED talk while taking notes about it. I found one that inspired me: “Why our screens make us less happy?” by Adam Alter.
I write about my learning in tech, wishing that it could be of help for anyone that one day had the same questions I had. My personal profile is @monifasol.
