It’s time to highlight the top five posts of the year. It wasn’t easy to choose only five, and by limiting our choice to only five, we had to eliminate hundreds of wonderful posts. We feel, however, that these top five are the most hard-hitting, useful, or knowledge-packed posts that will retain value well beyond this year. And without further ado, the winners are: 1.

The Daily Egg Year-End Roundup: Best Posts of 2017
Editor’s Note: Welcome to this month’s web development update. It’s actually the first one that we publish, and from now on, Anselm will summarize the most important things that happened over the past month in one handy list for you. So that you’re always up to date with what’s going on in the web community. Enjoy!
Today, I’d like to begin this update with a question I’m asking myself quite often, and that was fueled by the things I read lately: Where do we see our responsibility, where do we see other people’s responsibilities?
Monthly Web Development Update 09/2017: Functional CSS, Android 8 And iOS 11
(This is a sponsored post). Good UX is what separates successful apps from unsuccessful ones. Customers are won and lost every day because of good or bad user experience design. The most important thing to keep in mind when designing a mobile app is to make sure it is both useful and intuitive.
Obviously, if an app is not useful, it will have no practical value for the user, and no one will have any reason to use it.

Low-Hanging Fruits For Enhancing Mobile UX
Since humans are visually driven creatures, the impact of imagery only increases with the help of animation. Our eyes innately pay attention to moving objects, and animation is like eye candy — catchy and bright elements that call attention to and help differentiate an app from its competitors. As of late, more and more designers are incorporating animation as a functional element that enhances the user experience. Animation is no longer just for delight; it is one of the most important tools for successful interaction.
How Functional Animation Helps Improve User Experience
Visibility of system status is one of the most important principles in user interface design. Users want to feel in control of the system they’re using, which means they want to know and understand their current context at any given time, and especially when a system is busy doing work. A wait-animation progress indicator is the most common form of providing a system status for users when something is happening or loading.
Best Practices For Animated Progress Indicators
Design is more than just good looks – something all designers should know. Design also covers how users engage with a product. Whether it’s a site or app, it’s more like a conversation. Navigation is a conversation. It doesn’t matter how good your site or app is if users can’t find their way around.
In this post, we’ll help you better understand the principles of good navigation for mobile apps, then show you how it’s done using two popular patterns.

Web and mobile apps are moving away from pages towards completely personalized experiences. These new experiences are built on an aggregation of many individual pieces of content. The way this content is now being presented is in the form of cards. The card-based interaction model is spreading pretty widely, and you can see digital cards almost everywhere — from news sites to food delivery apps.
In this article, I’ll explain what cards mean to UI designers, and I’ll review three popular card-based services.

Successful developers all have something in common: the desire to create. To fully realize that creativity, they need to continually improve their skills. The web industry has grown from this desire to learn. You only need to look at the unwavering demand for conferences, workshops and training days for evidence of this.
For many companies, however, these sources of training require time and money that simply might not be available — especially when you consider that technologies evolve all the time.

When I realized I had written what seemed to be a course (i.e. not my usual article or book), I was left with a sense of panic. There are so many options for running an online email course, and all of them seem slightly confusing or time-intensive to set up.
Then I remembered the autoresponders feature in my newsletter application (I use MailChimp, although every newsletter software has it). I could trigger lessons with autoresponders and deliver course material to where most people spend most of their day: the inbox.
