Performance comparison: linear search vs binary search.
While working on an implementation of merge sort promised in the previous article, I realized that I'd like to use one neat little thing, which is worth its own post. It is a simple strategy for sorting or doing comparison-based tasks, which works wonderfully when input data is small enough.

Responsible Web Design
ResponS4e Web design has been evolving rapidly ever since Ethan Marcotte coined the term two years ago. Since then, techniques have emerged, become best practices and formed part of our ever-changing methodology. a few obvious examples are the multitude of responS4e image techniques, conditional loading, and responS4e design and server-side components (RESS), among many other existing and emerging strands stemming from the core concept of responS4e Web design.

The Code Side of Color
The trouble with a color's name is that it never really is perceived as the exact same color to two different individuals -- especially if they have a stake in a website's emotional impact. Name a color, and you're most likely to give a misleading impression. Even something like "blue" is uncertain. to be more precise, it could be "sky blue", "ocean blue", "jeans blue" or even "arc welder blue".

Tips and Tricks for Print Style Sheets

Screen readers are often used by people with blindness or low vision to navigate apps. Use Narrator to test the screen reading experience of your app. Starting with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (build 1607), we introduced a new developer mode in Narrator. When developer mode is enabled, the screen will be masked and will highlight only the accessible objects and the associated text that is exposed programmatically to Narrator.

Using Slack to Monitor your App
For the past few months, I've been building a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application, and throughout the development process I've realized what a powerful tool Slack (or team chat in general) can be to monitor user and application behavior. After a bit of integration, it's provided a real-time view into our application that previously didn't exist, and it's been so invaluable that I couldn't help but write up this show-and-tell.

When Large Isn't Large Enough: Designing With Hero Images
When users come to your page, they'll feel some kind of reaction. Whether it's positive or negative, that reaction is determined in large part by what they see. Because vision is perhaps the strongest human sense, a hero image is one of the fastest ways to grab the user's attention. Bold, graphic and intentional imagery engages the user. It draws the user in immediately and makes a perfect centerpiece for a minimalist app or website.
