I work for an amazing software development company. Though we keep what each of us is working on diversified, we each have a few areas of expertise. My interests always seem to shine right on user interaction design and user experience. I am fascinated by the way we interact with applications and always looking to improve that interaction.

I don't claim to be any sort of expert but am always happy to share my opinions and what I have learned though experience. I am always eager to learn and open to listen.

As an improvement to the month picker I would suggest possibly using an interface more in tune with this one lucianocosta.info/jquery.mtz.monthpicker

comment Login/sign-up in modal dialogs
In my experience I have found that modal dialogs should be avoided except where absolutely necessary or in the few rare cases where they provide a better user experience than the alternative. I completely agree with @Roger sentiments above. Perhaps you should go with the mindset of if they aren't logged in provide a space for logging in right inline with the page (with a link beneath to a sign up page).

comment How to mark a tooltip-containing word in a paragraph?
If you do decide that tool tip is the way to go, I would shoot for something like the icon in line three here, except use an 'i' instead of a '?'

Double underline is often seen on terrible websites to bring up "tool tip advertisements." I would avoid the double underline because of that association. I personally will keep my mouse from touching anything with a double underline for fear of some ad popping up.

comment How do you prevent scope creep in agile projects when usability testing?
Isnt a product backlog just that? A backlog of things that, when completed will make the product a better product? Whats on the product backlog and what is required for deliverable x don't equate in my mind. What is wrong with adding them as PBIs but not necessarily adding them to the sprints leading up to the deliverable? That way, if you don't have time to resolve the issues now, at least they will still be on the radar for future releases.

comment What's the appropriate way using desktop like notifications in a webapp (chrome notification feature)
Good points. Im coming from the perspective of a web app that has to deliver the same experience across the board. Having it be a chrome app is a great point.

Thanks for the comments. Yeah I spent half a day going back and forth on the nuances of this topic about a month ago when we were working on some UX mockups.

I'm not familiar with Chrome's notifications feature and a quick Googling didn't pull up anything explicit. Can you like to a reference about it?

comment Multiple Phone Number Inputs on Forms - Best way to reduce manual entry?
This seems like the cleaner solution to me. Is it a problem that the two numbers are ever different? If so I might embellish this solution to have the option to add a additional phone numbers (not just a mobile phone) and so that way you can have any number of contact phone numbers and just click the box to receive texts on the appropriate one(s).

comment Why don't we auto-save for users instead of having them save manually?
When I work in Photoshop I work off of a copy of the original file and ctrl-s all the time. What would you do if you worked for hours on something you actually wanted to keep and then Photoshop crashed?

comment Why don't we auto-save for users instead of having them save manually?
@Oskar Integrity issue in what way? I would probably have the undo stack be tightly coupled to the file but not saved within it. Alternately you could go with the timeline versioning where you just roll off copies of the file along a timeline (or a diff of the file from a particular state). Either way that is implementation's problem, not UXs.
