Implementing Accessible Data Charts for the Khan Academy 2018 Annual Report
A few months ago I teamed up with SuperFriendly to create an accessible micro-site for the Khan Academy 2018 Annual Report. The site is a very beautiful visual representation of Khan’s real-life impact on world education, their end-of-year financial reports, and more. By nature, the annual report contains a lot of data and visualizations and charts to represent it. My mission was to make sure that the way this data is presented and implemented is as accessible to site’s visitors as possible, regardless of how they explore the site.

How performant are data attributes as selectors
The results varied quite a bit each time I ran the test. Sometimes classes were faster. Sometimes data attributes were faster. Sometimes both took a long time, and sometimes both ran really quickly. On average, they both took about half a millisecond to run each. In other words: no difference whatsoever.

A/A Testing: How I increased conversions 300% by doing absolutely nothing
The belief seems to be that if they just keep testing, they will find the answer, and build the business of their dreams. Most of them are wrong. Many of their businesses would be better off if they didn’t run any A/B tests at all.

Design Better Data Tables
Tables might be boring, but they are such a major element of any data-rich document that they’re worth every ounce of design thinking we can apply to them. By designing more efficient, clearer, and easier-to-use tables, you can vastly improve the often-painful experience of analyzing and understanding large sets of data.
