PrestaShop is open source e-commerce software used to power over 250,000 stores with international access. The developers of PrestaShop and others are committed to helping small businesses expand into the e-commerce trade at no cost.
The updated version of the software primarily sports a new facelift in the back office, but they have added a few tweaks that the users will find make their experience better, faster and less likely to slow down during peak traffic times. The primary reason for the decrease is the improvement to SQL queries and cache issues. According to Jocelyn Fournier, CEO and Founder at Softizy, “188.8.131.52 is a major release in terms of performances, with up to 10x speed up in some cases”.
It is well-known that the European Union not only took ten years to form and gain full steam, they came with a labyrinth of regulation and rules to be navigated through in order to do business internationally. This can be very challenging to those who wish to maintain an international retail presence.
The developers at PrestaShop have placed 15 new options into the “Advanced EU Compliance module”. These additions will make legal compliance less complicated and faster. This update has been something users have needed for a while.

Tutorialzine has published an article “Comparing Bootstrap With Google’s New Material Design Lite“. Bootstrap was originally built by Twitter with the purpose of making it easy to build responsive websites. It gives you a lot of components and customization options for making web apps. Material Design Lite is a way for Google to spread its material design concept to the web. It gives you only the base building blocks for building material apps. The rest is up to the developer.
Bootstrap has a very detailed documentation. Development involves copy pasting from the examples and getting a usable result fast. MDL is built around BEM, and components are built by combining multiple classes. This approach gives a great deal of control, but can sometimes lead to unwieldy HTML.
Bootstrap gives you a passable default design which we have grown tired of by now, but there are plenty of wonderful themes to chose from. MDL looks fresh and features bold colors and animations. It dictates exactly how your web app should look like and gives you a limited opportunity for customization by choosing base and accent colors. You can check out the full article here.

After an amazing response from the web community, “Design Details” and “Developer Tea” have teamed up to create Spec.fm, a resource to help designers and developers to connect with one another. Their podcasts are downloaded more than 60,000 times per week and we’re working to create new shows to provide the most up-to-date resources and information for the design & development community.
Their episodes are quite casual and not necessarily an “interview-style” show. They have guests on each week but we try to blend the personal and professional; the design resources with the personal stories. Over time they have found that the more open a guest can be, the better listeners will respond and connect with that person. One of their main focuses is keeping the show’s content diverse. This means chatting not only with women, people of color and folks outside of San Francisco, but also it means hosting people from startups, agencies and big companies across all job descriptions. This blending of culture and jobs into one show helps provide a more clear picture of what the design industry can actually be like for designers out there listening.
