This post is partially outdated.

Today I thought I’d share some of the most valuable usability and user experience articles and resources I know, in a somewhat wild mix. Since there’s presumably enough to read and talk about later, please welcome a few great articles and research papers you hopefully enjoy as much as I do:

In case you miss people, organizations, or other things concerning the above topics, here are a few more excellent sites where you’ll find interesting material and good advice:

No matter that these are 27 resources, what are you favorites of both these and your own bookmarks?

    Jens,

    That’s an awesome list.

    There are two articles I keep close:

    “Information Interaction Design: A unified field theory of design” by
    Nathan Shedroff:

    “All watched over by machines of loving grace: Some ethical guidelines
    for user experience in ubiquitous-computing settings” by Adam
    Greenfield (Boxes and Arrows)
    * http://tinyurl.com/nw3mx

    Not sure these belong on your list. They’re just good. Curious to hear
    about other personal touchstones.

    Very useful list, and I particularly like Jesse James Garret’s PDF in your list. Although it is quite old now it still covers the user experience fundamentals very well.

    Late addition: If this was helpful, take a look at my Delicious bookmarks tagged usability/ux and temporary, too.

Have a look at the most popular posts, possibly including:

Cover: CSS Optimization Basics.

Perhaps my most relevant book: CSS Optimization Basics (2018). Writing CSS is a craft. As craftspeople we strive to write high quality CSS. In CSS Optimization Basics I lay out some of the most important aspects of such CSS. Available at Amazon, Google Play Books, and Leanpub.
