Building Better Interfaces, a talk by Hakim El Hattab

At CSS Day 2019, I was fortunate to see Hakim El Hattab bring his talk Building Better Interfaces. A recording of his talk – and all other talks – are available on YouTube:

This session is a deep-dive into the areas of interface design that Hakim has specialized in for over a decade—interactivity and animation. He’s going to take an in-depth look at a few different UI components to highlight common pitfalls and present concrete solutions. He’ll talk about the correlation between having fun at work and building interfaces that are fun to work with. Most of all, he’s going to share practical tips for building better and more enjoyable user interfaces on the web.

Personally I think a more fitting title would’ve been “Building More Delightful Interfaces”, as the additions don’t necessarily make the interface itself better, as they already were really good to begin with. If you have the time to add these kind of extras, be sure to do so … they surely will bring smiles on the face of your users.
