Designing the new Uber App

不久前Uber发布了全新UI设计的App。Uber的设计师在文中阐释了Uber以终为始的设计理念。在交通中,终极的问题是“你要去哪?”。因此Uber新版设计中,在主屏拿掉了“输入上车点”的步骤(默认当前定位为当前上车点)。当选择目的地后,路线行程已经计算好并呈现在地图上了——用户的每一步操作都给到最快速的反馈。

由于在迭代过程中有更多新的功能加入,Uber也在反思初心,如何将叫车这件事做到最简单——如何让设计保持更简洁。

同时Uber也展现了对霸占用户“行驶途中时间”的野心。与音乐播放器的结合;与目的地附近餐厅菜单的结合等都是在为“车上时间”布局。当无人驾驶普及后,车载娱乐方式也许是一片蓝海。

A big redesign is daunting. There are a lot of variables and unknowns that tell you there will be potential failure down the road. But we knew that if we wanted to build for the future, we had to be comfortable taking that risk. This meant not only taking a big bet on how things look, but also re-imagining how things flow.

Uber’s original premise was simple. “Push a button, get a ride.”

So, to move past the comfort of our beginnings we decided to design the new Uber experience with a simple twist: “Start at the end.”

Programming Has Changed My Life

计算机是绝对理性,不会出错的。如果你的代码出现了Bug,那只会是你自己的错。

在编程过程中,最痛苦的莫过于找一个毫无头绪的Bug了。而每当抓耳挠腮了好几个小时依旧不见头绪,甚至会有把电脑砸了的冲动。冷静下来,Bug依旧在那里,电脑依旧在那里——他只是在”绝对严格“执行你输入的代码而已。绝对冷酷,绝对一丝不苟。

从这层意义上来说,写代码绝对是在“打磨心性”。年少时,你很难承认自己的错误。而在这样“严酷“的对手面前,你只能妥协,然后安安静静的找到你哪里错了——日积月累后,你会成长为一个有担当,有韧性,有耐心的人。

The reason is due to the nature of writing code. Despite all advances in AI, computers are pretty dumb. They do exactly what you tell them to do.

Talking to a computer is not like talking to a human. Computers have no opinion. They don’t care about being right or being wrong. They just do what they’re told.

The lessons I learned from programming did not stay exclusive to my career as a software developer. They carried over into all other aspects of my life.

How To Read A Self-Help Book In 90 Minutes

世上好书这么多,想读的书永远读不完?文中提供了实用的读书方法。

第一步:挑选合适的书,不能运用到当下的书不读。很多书当你格局不够的时候,读了白读。第二步:读框架和目录。读这类书的目的很简单,就是从中获得可以运用在生活或工作中的一些技巧。因此首先读一下封面和封底,看看这书要教你的是什么?再读读目录,把不感兴趣的部分跳掉。只标出自己感兴趣的部分。第三步:认真读,当苦差事一般的读。记录自己有体会的句子,并且务必在书上涂涂画画。第四步:读完几天之后,当思绪已经渐渐从书中出来,根据读书时记录的笔记写总结。第五步:尝试将书中的内容教给别人,融会贯通。

Especially if you, like me, read books to learn new things. Around 80% of the books on my reading list are non-fiction. And I have a simple system that I use to read more non-fiction books.

Instead, use this process to get actionable advice from books so you can immediately put your knowledge into practice. Whether you use it or not, I challenge you to think consciously about WHY you read.

WEEKLY PRODUCT

Typora

一款简约的输入编辑器。支持Markdown语法编辑,实时预览,各种格式导出,各种定制主题。而更关键的是,Typora实在是太美了,从Typora官网的设计就能略知一二。

除了没有文件管理系统,Typora的所有细节一点不比另一款著名的编辑器Ulysses做的差。要知道,Ulysses可要50刀,而Typora则是完全免费。

而自从开始使用Typora写markdown后,就再也没有打开过pages,word了。

WEEKLY MUSIC

I Lived

I lived.

Hope when you take that jump You don’t feel the fall Hope when the water rises You built a wall Hope when the crowd screams out It’s screaming your name Hope if everybody runs You choose to stay Hope that you fall in love And it hurts so bad The only way you can know You give it all you have And I hope that you don’t suffer But take the pain… Hope when the moment comes You’ll say I…I did it all I…I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places The things that I did Yeah, with every broken bone I swear I lived Hope that you spend your days But they all add up And when that sun goes down Hope you raise your cup Oh, oh I wish that I could witness All your joy and all your pain But until my moment comes I’ll say I…I did it all I…I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places The things that I did Yeah, with every broken bone I swear I lived
