#UX Tip about Keyboard Shortcuts!
- Use a shortcut with the CTRL key for "large-scale" actions (like CTRL+S for save).
- Avoid ALT+ letter combinations that may conflict keys that are being used to access menu items (when not using a mouse).
- Use SHIFT + [key combination] to extend the action of [key combination] (like SHIFT+ALT+TAB to navigate backward through currently running applications).
- Use the ENTER key for the default action of a dialog box.
- Use the ESC key to stop or cancel an operation.
Click the link and get more ideas on how to select the shortcut keys wisely.

#UX Tip! The digital proficiency of users is worse than you'd expect. Only 5% of the adult users can complete a "Level 4" task – e.g. scheduling a meeting with several attendees.

#UX Tip! Fitts’ Law states that the bigger an object is and the closer it is to us, the easier it will be for us to reach it. Seems obvious, isn’t it? So how come we still need to cope with jumpy menus in some websites? Apparently, applying Fitts' law is not always simple, and no - a bigger button is not always a more usable button.

#UX Tip: Cards are a useful UI component for grouping several related pieces of information together for providing an entry point to further details. Cards work especially well in contexts where they provide summaries of many different kinds of content.

#UX tip: The golden rule of dashboards' UX is to avoid them and provide your users timely notifications about abnormalities, mishaps, and valuable insights. In some contexts, though, dashboards cannot be avoided, so here are your rules of thumb to do it right.

שתהיו למוצר משמעותי ולא "לרשת חברתית"
למשאבה רפואית ולא למשאבת קליקים
למערכת ולא לאפפ

שיהיה לכם תואר במדעים ולא ביזמות
בעיבוד תמונה ולא ב-growth hacking
בהנדסת מכונות ולא בדיגיטל

שתעשו פרויקטים ולא תתנו talks
שתשפרו חיים של אנשים ולא תגנבו את דעתם
שתתאימו גם לבעלי מוגבלויות

שתאפשרו להתנסות בלי להרשם
להרשם בלי להתקין
ולהתקין בלי להרשם

שתכתבו מעל ה"פולד" וגם מתחתיו
דברי טעם ולא דברי רהב
שהתרגום של הכפתור "Close" יצא לכם "סגור" ולא "קרוב"!

שהמיזם שלכם יגדל לאט אבל בטוח
על בסיס ראיות ולא על פי דעות
שתבנו אותו להיות חברה גדולה ולא exit

שנה טובה!
