I became a guerrilla UX fighter back in 1995.

Me in my guerrila days

I've been underground for many years, but recently decided to ditch the Kalashnikov, get out the trenches, and take a more formal approach to the topic.

Currently taking an MSc in Human-centred Interaction Design at City University, London.

I specialise in complex system, cognition and aesthetics; my current role is a UX/Product designer.

comment Repeating Sidebar and Nav titles within the Page view
I feel it's important to say that the F pattern only holds for specific layout/content types and despite being one of the most common orderly patterns, in general it applies less often than not. Many sites will not yield such heatmap and a good visual designer will lead the eye to wherever needed. I think the answer would be as solid without mentioning the pattern.

Although people have different opinions and past experiences, I feel that had we engaged in a proper debate on this, we'd end up all agreeing with one another. But doing so here doesn't really help others - this is really what the chat is for. So I recommend we wrap it up for now.

Have you ever tried to add a role-based mechanism, or a command-based transactions (for undo) in the middle of a project? Months of work would be spared if such requirements were identified before a single line of code was written. And would you apply Agile in the following projects: A ticketing system for the olympics, an air traffic control system, a system to replace the current customer accounts of an energy provider? Please educate me on what Agile is about and what am I missing. @JamesRyan.

You make a valid point - you always learn along the way. But if you come to write an email client, or a tree-grid component, you should have a fairly solid understanding of the requirements. Same with projects where functionality was thrown in for a few years with no consideration for UX. New functionality is hardly added; the users have had their say; and now you need to sort it all out - breadth and depth. Such work requires time.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by 'names'. Have a look at Animate.css for a reference to many common animation names. I've also removed the request for JAVA implementations suggestions - StackOverflow would be the place for this type of question.
