The Web in Developing Nations
So it’s been way too long since I last wrote here viagra online apotheke. My writing efforts have been entirely focused on my master’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction, so I thought I could at least post some of that work here for the time being.
I recently wrote a research paper about web usability in developing nations. I love discussions around web performance, so I was particularly interested in this topic. In the context of the class, I wasn’t able to dive as deep into the technical aspects as I would have liked, but I’m pretty happy with out it turned out overall. Here is a quick intro to the paper:
The internet is widely available and reliable for those of us in developed countries like the United States and most of the European Union. We have fast, highly accessible networks, ever more powerful technology to access these networks, and relatively good education systems to help us use them. But people in less developed areas of the world can have a significantly different, and often more challenging experience accessing the web. What are the problems people in these developing countries face in regards to web accessibility and usability? How can a better interaction with the web help improve the lives of these people? As designers, developers, and analysts, what can we do to improve this interaction, and why do we even care in the first place?
You can read the full paper here.
It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to write because of the holidays and diving further into my HCI master’s program at DePaul. I finally took some time to reflect on my work from the past few months, so I’d like to write about a couple of projects and some insights I’ve gained from them.
The organization I work for now is going through a major overhaul on its eCommerce platform. We are moving inventory to a new warehouse, changing shipping policies, adding new products, and working towards simplifying our customers’ experience. My role so far has been to rework our SQL databases to conform to our new data structures, rewrite the back-end (PHP) logic associated with those tables, and rework our store website’s custom admin panel. It’s been a lot of work, but I’ve really enjoyed the chance to stretch out my SQL knowledge.
Data structures seem to be a common thread between my work projects lately. My work involves different ways of organizing data, like JSON, SQL, and associative arrays, and how to communicate that data around different programming frameworks. It’s always satisfying when all the different parts of a system fit together nicely and churn out exactly what you expect.
Future of WordPress – Calypso
If you’re tuned in to the world of web development, you may have seen some exciting headlines about WordPress recently. WordPress is being completely rewritten in React! WordPress is now built on Node! WordPress is abandoning PHP for newer technologies! While statements like these make for clickable headlines and thrilling tweets, I don’t think they accurately describe what’s actually happening on the web’s largest CMS.
I’m still not really clear on how this affects the rest of the WordPress backend. Some tech sites and documentation indicate that WordPress is actually moving away from PHP and SQL databases entirely, in favor of Node and JSON. Other articles I’ve read say that Calypso will only affect the view model of the WordPress admin, and the rest of the backend will still be PHP as it has always been.
