A Comparative Analysis among the Posts of UX Designer, UX Analyst and UX Architect

Most often people get confused with the terms of UX designer, UX architect and UX analyst. The designations seem to be similar but there is a huge difference in the actual roles played by the respective post holders. A deeper analysis will help us to understand the roles in a better way.

Role played by a UX designer

A UX designer is a creatively driven person who can represent the website vision through his sense of creativity thereby giving an ideal user experience aimed for the target audience.

The UX designer has to take care of the website design structure and the flow so that the user would not have any issues with the navigation. Along with this, the UX designer has to keep intact the aesthetic beauty of the UI.

When we talk about user experience, it encompasses everything. It takes an entire experience to be created comprising of the complete journey while the user goes through the user interface.

Role played by a UX analyst

As the name suggests, the UX analyst shoulders the responsibility of requirement analysis of the client. In addition, the users’ behaviour should be incorporated within the designing parameter of the user interface.

Any website UI that is intended for the users should keep in mind their liking and disliking for building a design that would most likely be applauded by the audience. Thus, the UX strategist or the analyst has a very significant task to do.

In bigger business houses, there is a clear job division and separate UX analysts are recruited to complete the jobs. However, in smaller enterprises, the UX analyst may be allocated with the job of designing a particular section of the website.

Role played by a UX architect

The role of a UX architect is separate from an analyst or a designer.

He may be directly or indirectly involved in giving realisation to a user experience however he is responsible to give a meaningful presentation of data and organizational structure at the website but from the users’ perspective.

It may sound easier, but it requires a lot of effort on the part of the architect. The architect also performs the duty of an analyst for ensuring that all the user requirements are completely met while he presents the information.

The Features of Angular 2 and TypeScript

By far, one of the most popular frameworks for JavaScript is the Angular JS with which versatile web applications are developed. Latest Angular 2 version along with Type Script is introducing the true principles of object oriented paradigm into the mainstream programming world. The syntax is very much similar with Java 8.

The Present Scenario

Around 1.3 million developers are using Angular JS throughout the world. The latest version of Angular JS namely the Angular 2 is being used by 300 thousand users. Those who used to work with jQuery found that Angular JS has many more advantages over it.

Features of Angular JS

  1. MVC architecture being truly followed
  2. Incorporation of POJO models
  3. Declarative user interface
  4. Functional directives
  5. Flexible utilisation of filters
  6. No need to write unnecessary codes
  7. Proper DOM manipulations
  8. Proper service providers
  9. Context aware communication
  10. Pre-developed unit testing

Despite all the above mentioned features still Angular JS alone would not be able to solve all the challenges posed by modern technical requirements. For example if you demand a gaming or a mathematical computation program then Angular JS might not be able to successfully serve you. However, it is very much effective to solve the problems based upon the field of generic web applications. The supporters of Angular JS found a relief after Google declared the release of Angular 2 that comes with a promise of sufficing for the inadequacies of Angular JS.

Role of Angular 2 as the saviour

  • There are some advantages if you switch over to Angular 2 which are as follows:
  • Usage of TypeScript
  • Giving support to web components
  • Great performance
  • Simplified interface
  • Experts propose to use Angular 2 to complete the large scale projects.

Angular 2 and Typescript

One of the major advantages of Angular 2 is that it could easily work with both TypeScript and JS whereas Angular JS could only perform with JavaScript. The official website of Angular 2 incorporates the documentation of TypeScript. For this reason, one should know the advantages of TypeScript.

Features of TypeScript

  • TypeScript combines various characteristics of JS that helps it to solve the long-term projects.
  • Its syntax is more convenient for the Java and C# developers.
  • TypeScript offers support for interfaces and inheritance that will facilitate code decoupling and its reuse.

Software application advancement is the priority of application developers and that is why, they are continuously trying to add more documentation with the new Angular 2. Hopefully, in future we would get a richer version of Angular 2.

Tips for Optimization: Integrate HTTP Compression with ASP.NET

Definition of HTTP compression

Since the closing of the last century, most browsers have supported the process of compressed contents. Contents are compressed using the method of content encoding specified within HTML 1.1. During the process of browser request of a web page, it specifies if a particular content-encoding method is supported by it or if not then which kind is supported. As per that request, the server fulfills the browser demand. The information is communicated via ‘accept-encoding’ request header. If configured accurately, the server could respond to header value and would automatically compress HTTP content just before passing it to browser. After the arrival of content, the decompression process is performed by the browser that renders the page.

Advantage of HTTP compression

Primary aim of using the HTTP compression method is to reduce the byte numbers that is transmitted in between the server and the user machine. During the process of page loading, the overall transmission time is the main bottleneck behind its slow speed. Bandwidth is directly related with costs spent as site operator and by reducing the bytes of transmission, you not only save money but also improve site performance.

How to integrate HTTP compression with ASP.NET?

Many methods are there to blend HTTP compression along with ASP.NET in Software Development. If a user has complete access to server then using IIS6 would offer few basic compression support. By default, IIS6 offers HTTP compression for dynamic content. However, while compressing dynamic contents, one would need extra steps. User machines under the control of Windows Server 2008 could avail outstanding features offered by IIS7. This architecture lets you define file compression based on MIME method used in your configuration.

Hopefully, those developers who do not have direct access to IIS could implement alternative methods to deploy the support for HTTP compression. One may use either open source projects or commercial products that exist on interwebs to implement HTTPModules to compress the content on the basis of configuration rules.

First of all, add HttpModule reference to web.config and deploy a single assembly in the bin folder. Thereafter compress the HTTP content (served by either of the 2 architectures) via intelligent sets of rules.
