User experience design professional.
Coding to web standards allows us to benefit from the interoperability of web-related products. It makes web development faster and has benefits for those with special needs to use the Web.
Responsive web design
Design and development should respond to a user's behaviour and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation through the use of flexible layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries.
Mobile first design
With mobile user numbers continuing to increase, I design experiences and interfaces for them first, and the for tablet and desktop experiences separately.
The speed at which a page loads content is important, improving it can lead to an increase in engagement and conversions. In 2010 Google began incorporating page load speed into its ranking algorithm, so optimised websites get preferential treatment over slower websites.
Agile development advocates the use of adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, continuous improvement, encourages rapid and flexible response to change and encourages active ‘user’ involvement throughout the product’s development.
Software testing helps to address issues such as security, functionality, accessibility, and load performance before new code is released for users.
