I’ve recently joined the blogging community at Search Facets (Endeca’s ‘corporate’ blog), with an opening post discussing some of the formative influences on the creation of the Endeca UI Design Pattern Library. Now, I don’t normally do tributes, but with the launch still pretty fresh in the minds of many observers, now is a good time to reflect on those who (perhaps unknowingly) contributed to its inception, and to give credit where its due. I also took the opportunity to give a bit of insight into which topic areas & patterns we anticipate working on next, and where we’d like to take the library in the longer term. You can read more on Search Facets, and I hope to be writing more there shortly.
BTW, I put the word ‘corporate’ in quotes above as I strongly support ex-colleague Daniel Tunkelang’s observation that for a blog to flourish it needs to find its own voice, and we are fortunate at Endeca in having considerable discretion to articulate our own views and opinions. Long may that continue.
