7 Golden Rules for Creating Great UI

7 Golden Rules for Creating Great UI

AWS CLOUD LAMBDA

The User Interface is one of the most critical parts of any software product. To increase the chances of success, designers and developers follow a few fundamental interface design principles. These principles represent crucial concepts used to guide software design. In this guide, I’ll share seven golden rules to help you create a beautiful user interface.

Who will benefit from this guide?

This guide is meant for:

1.  Developers looking to design their own amazing user interface

2.  UX designers seeking to give their portfolio a better appearance

Why I decided to get UI skills

As a UX designer, I thought I had everything I needed to succeed. Unfortunately, I didn’t have UI skills, and I came to learn the importance of creating beautiful user interfaces the hard way. First, my UX consulting clients preferred to hire someone with a variety of skills. Secondly, my portfolio was terrible, and it portrayed a bad impression about my work and skills. Having majored in engineering, it became my main excuse for failing to build something that looks good.

But soon I realized that I couldn’t let my excuses be the cause of my failures. Without any knowledge about aesthetics, I decided to learn through hard analysis everything there is to know about the aesthetics of apps. After hours of digging, practicing, and detailing what works, I picked up a few lessons for building a great UI.

How these rules can help you

As a nerd, you might not have an intuitive understanding of beauty and balance, but with these guide, you’ll be able to create a good-looking interface. This guide focuses solely on application rather than theory.

Light comes from the sky

Did you know that the human brain can tell what user elements we are looking at from shadows?

Light from the sky illuminates the upper part of objects, thereby casting shadows below the objects. As a result, the top side is always lighter and the bottom side darker. For instance, the lower eyelids of a person do not appear shaded, but if you happen to shine some light on them, you will notice the difference.

Everything works under this principle, including user interface. All UI elements have shadows below them. Though screens are flat, people have been able to make things on the screens appear to be 3-D.

10 Big Data Trends to watch in 2018

10 Big Data Trends to watch in 2018

BIG DATA TRENDS

Open Source

The future of Big Data will be dominated by the open source applications like Spark, Apache Hadoop, and others. Forrester Research claims that this tendency is increasing 32.9 percent per year.

The Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) allows an access to data from various devices. Unsurprisingly, this year promises is to become a revolution in the interconnectedness of smart home technology. With the majority of people in the developed world routinely operating multiple devices, loT attempts to fill the void between data collection and enable communication between different sources.

Cloud computing

Businesses across the globe have started to use cloud computing for their IT activities. Primarily, many companies are using cloud to run the apps. Predictions shows that this percentage of companies relying on cloud computing will only continue to increase over the next few years. Big data Analytics is another important predicted trend in the IT world that influences not only how the cloud is used, but also addressing the growing demand and providing opportunities for innovation.

Machine Learning and AI

These technologies are on the spotline, and more companies have begun investing in it. Machine learning as a branch of AI, analyze big data without being explicitly programmed.

Chatbots

The arrival of messaging apps furthered the development of chatbots. Chatbot is a software program that conducts a communication with a user via textual methods. With a help of chatbots, you can carry out a number of different tasks, such as chatting with users, helping with purchases or pushing social media activities as much as like the famous app or also known as Crowdfire.

Predictive Analytics

Big data helps businesses to get the predictions of future behavior. In few words, predictable analysis brings the opportunity to customers ‘to know their customers’, and consequently maximize the profit and choose the right marketing strategy.

Cybersecurity

The last and arguably the most important field where changes must occur is cybersecurity. Today we live in two worlds, with the second being played out or inside of our computers. As our lives continue to advance and become digital, the demands for cybersecurity and policing of the Internet will continue to expand.

As cybersecurity adapts and develops to meet its society’s needs, its demand, function, and role will be forced to evolve due it its security. Anti-piracy companies will help by blocking illegal content, and new technologies will protect our data and computers from attacks, and other kinds of damage.

Business Intelligence

The companies’ decision-making will be based on big data. Even if it’s a small company, ignoring the importance of data science will lead to regressive management and loss of the profit. The use of Business Intelligence from Cloud will drastically increase. All decisions regarding market growth or expansion into new regions, or markets will be based on Big Data.

Big Data Focused Intelligent Apps

Such application incorporates Big data Analytics to provide personalization and improved service. AI and Machine learning will be implemented in almost every app.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has already taken an effect; this has got many organizations and companies to ensure they comply with such regulation.

When question were asked about the function of Big Data in their respective organizations, about 66 percent of the respondents stated that they took cognizance of it to be either “strategic” or “game-changing”. Only 17 percent stated that big data was nonetheless “experimental” at their companies, and some 17 percent described their efforts as “tactical.”

These various perspectives on big data make it clear that this is one trend that is not going to fade away anytime quickly.

 

 

Predictions were given about the future of big data and what companies would face if they see big data as a strategy. Our company, MicroMoney, uses Big Data to provide our customers with the best service, and banks with the most accurate information to serve customers they couldn’t serve before.

Big Data and analytics will drive modern business operations, and will not certainly reflect their overall performance; corporations will take an encompassing approach to facts and analytics.

Organizations will create end-to-end architectures that will allow data management and analytics from the center to the edge of the organization; and company executives will make Big Data and analytics as part of their enterprises’ strategy, which shall permit big data professionals to take up new roles and create business growth for corporate excellence.
