We were really excited to find something that captures our own design thinking so perfectly. From starting with user needs, designing for accessibility, and insisting on evidence-based design decisions; these guys have structured these ideas really well.
1 Start with needs*
2 Do less
3 Design with data
4 Do the hard work to make it simple
5 Iterate. Then iterate again.
6 Build for inclusion
7 Understand context
8 Build digital services, not websites
9 Be consistent, not uniform
10 Make things open: it makes things better

“The trade-off between native and a web app is between affordability and quality of user-experience”
Another excellent slide deck from Martin Fowler, this time on developing apps for multiple mobile devices and the hazards posed by cross-platform toolkits (among other things…). Definitely worth reading.
