65: Strand Web Components


MediaMath (@MediaMath)  has created an open source project built on top of Web Components & Polymer (@Polymer) called Strand. It was created for their internal web product Terminal One but is available and easy to get on Github. Daniel Lasky (@aerolith),  Justin Moore (@jcmmit), & Anthony Koerber (@DrDooganMeister) chat with us about the pains of migrating from Polymer 0.5 to 1.0 as well as what it has been like to drive an open source Web Components library with Polymer Elements ranging from basic buttons to complex grids. Check out Strand’s documentation for further detail

Free eBook: Data-Informed Product Design



Designers must understand user needs to create any product. But what type of data should you look at? In her new book, Data-Informed Product Design, Pamela Pavliscak outlines a way to use data of all kinds to understand the relationship between people and technology. Generally speaking, big data is quantitative; it gives you the what, where, and when, while “thick data” provides the qualitative perspective—the how and the why.


Up until now, there hasn't been much information on how to combine quantitative big data with qualitative thick data. That's where this report can help. If you're involved in any aspect of product design, this is indispensable reading. It's useful, and we're pleased to offer it to you, for free! Get the free ebook now.

Design Sprint: A fast start to creating a great digital product


October 20 | 10:00am PT | Banfield, Lombardo, & Wax


The Design Sprint is the first, and for some projects the most significant, phase of a design thinking process. It gets the entire product design and development team on the same page, reduces the risk of downstream mistakes, and generates vision-lead goals for the team to measure their success. Join Richard Banfield, C. Todd Lombardo, and Trace Wax as they explain why and how Design Sprints work and how you can use Design Sprints to enhance your own design process.
