25 Excellent Usability/UX Articles and Resources

This post is partially outdated.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?

Was this useful or interesting? Share (toot) this post, or maybe treat me to a coffee. Thanks!

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens (long: Jens Oliver Meiert), and I’m a frontend engineering leader and tech author/publisher. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google and as an engineering manager for companies like Miro, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma.

I love trying things, not only in web development (and engineering management), but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you want to do me a favor, interpret charitably (I speak three languages, and they can collide), yet be critical and give feedback for me to learn and improve. Thank you!

    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.
