All,

A recent Google search of mine returned the site Welie.com as one of the
first hits. I've never seen this site before and couldn't find anything
about it in the IxDA archives. Since the site is about patterns in
design interaction, I was wondering if any of you have used the site and
what you thought of it? It appears to be published by a single
individual, but he does seem to have some decent credentials.

Thanks,

Odd that the search fails within IxDA, because there have been some
recent discussions involving welie.com.

One came up under Pattern Tap,
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=31495&search=pattern tap)

Another came up under "Best Practices VS. Patterns"
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=30922&search=best practices)

Also mentioned in a discussion of "Patterns vs. Designs"
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=15919&search=patterns vs
designs)

hmph. I think the next discussion could be regarding the benefits of
using tinyurl.com over cutting and pasting.

Well, you get the idea.
Shaun.

It's definitly a great resource, his pattrens are categorized nicely
which makes it easy to search through. He is a very reconized
interaction designer in the Netherlands and his blog posts are very good
so I would definitly refer to this resource.

Welie's site is one of the best known (and one of the best) UI design
pattern sites. I refer to it regularly. He and Jenifer Tidwell really put
this idea on the map. (I think the Yahoo pattern library helped, too, but it
came after them and, well, I'm biased).

The site has a nice archive about the basic practices of interaction
design and is a good resource for different approaches in navigation.

The most interesting parts are actually his published papers which,
if you are not in the possession of "interact", can be found at
"about me".
