We continue to introduce you to the design artifacts that our customers receive during the analysis and design stage of the project. So, we have already talked about Wireframes and a clickable prototype, now we will talk about the final design of screens.
Customers and developers usually speak different languages. The client represents the external behavior of the system: what it will do and how end-users will work with it. Programmers think about the product in terms of its internal characteristics.
Today we are talking about the Request response diagram, the optional artifact, we use if the project provides integrations (for example, with Google translator, delivery and logistics service, online payment, etc.).
Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is used in various fields, for example, in sales and project management. In development, this tool is important at the stage of business analytics: with the help of BPMN, all scenarios of interaction between users and the system are described.
I am convinced that the effectiveness of a manager lies in clear planning of their own time and the actions of employees. And this applies to any level of management: from the CEO to the middle manager.
Hi, I am Yuri Pukhov, the director of the IT company YuSMP Group. I want to share my leadership experience. Our web studio is relatively young - we have been on the market since 2017, but before gathering my own team, I was in a senior position in the IT industry for several years. During that time, I formed several principles that help in working with a team.
When I first became a manager, it was difficult to know how to act correctly: to be a tough boss or a friend-assistant for employees, or need to look for a happy middle ground?
I quickly realized that the word boss is not about me and not about my position. I am rather a mentor and a team leader. And this is how I understand leadership:
The leader is convinced that every issue is solvable. He must be resourceful and help employees find a way out of any difficulties.
A leader should inspire. To be eager to do the business and influence others. It is important to believe in the goals and objectives that are set for employees. Insincerity is always felt, and nothing of value can be built on a lie.
It is simple, but a leader is about strength and courage. You have to be strong to admit your mistakes and not give up in difficult times. To be bold to take risks, and accept feedback from employees about their work.
I am convinced that criticism can only be constructive. I do not allow negative, destructive statements either within the team or in relation to the company from the outside.
It is important to give employees feedback. I have often come across the fact that managers are included only when it is necessary to point out weaknesses and mistakes in the work. Of course, it is important to show the growth points to each team member and monitor the quality of work, but at the same time, I try not to miss the opportunity to praise my colleagues.
It is important to set the right example - no one will want to work at full strength if the manager himself does not devote himself to the process. I also instill organization in the team - I make my schedule and control the schedule of employees.
From my point of view, the leader should not only assign himself the achievements of the company, and blame the failures of subordinates. I do the opposite - I share the responsibility for failures with the employees, and I give the victories to the team.
This is how I see a manager-a leader who shows hard work by his example and involvement in processes. He gives employees freedom but does not let the work take its course, notes success, but can defend the boundaries.
iPhones and other not only Apple equipment owners often face the problem of breaking the charging cable. After some time of using the cable at the base of the connector becomes thinner or cracks, the wire becomes not neat, and it is no safe anymore to use such charging.
Apple has decided to patent a new technology for charging cables, which will help to avoid such a breakdown. The patent application has already been sent to the relevant office in the United States.
The new technology is a construction of a sleeve that will serve as an insulating shell for the cable. Several materials used for the sleeve have different properties: a harder material for the outer layer and a softer one for the inner layer. This solution will reduce the load on the bending of the cable, without increasing its thickness. With all the innovations, the cable will not change its look in any way.
It became known that Facebook managers consider targeted advertising for business useless: in the business correspondence of employees, data were given that paid ads are not shown to the target audience even in half of the cases.
Behind every successful project, there are not only great things but also daily operational processes, without which nothing would have happened. The Project Manager is responsible for them in the team-the leader and soul of the project, who takes over the routine and control of tasks.
In the previous articles, we talked about the discovery phase and the stage of analytics and design. Now as these steps have been completed, we have a clear plan of action. It's time to start the development itself!
The concept of a thin slider smartphone was presented by the Chinese company Oppo. When folded, the gadget will be the size of a bank card, and in full size, the screen will reach seven inches (these are the largest displays on the smartphone market).

The United States government is preparing new lawsuits that are planned to be brought against the most powerful Internet corporations: Google and Facebook. The country's authorities believe that the companies violate antitrust laws.
At the new stage, we are working even more detailed on the future product: here the final design of screens is confirmed, all user scenarios are described, and a clickable prototype is created if it’s necessary.
In the Yuspm Group web Studio, we adhere to the position that it is necessary to design future applications together with a client. With this approach, we have implemented dozens of projects that are now working successfully. In this article, we shared our experience of joint design.
We briefly and clearly tell you about the new products, prices, and the joke about the PC.
The next presentation of Apple was held in California, which was the third in a row this year. Earlier in 2020, the world was shown the new versions of branded tablets, smartwatches, and as everyone remembers, the iPhone 12 was presented in three versions.
