Netlify acquires OneGraph GraphQL platform

From the Netlify blog…

Today we’re thrilled to announce that Y Combinator and SignalFire-backed OneGraph is joining Netlify. We launched Netlify in 2015 to help developers move from legacy monolithic web architecture to Jamstack, where the web presentation layer is decoupled from backend logic. OneGraph will drive innovation in the Netlify platform to make it even easier to build and manage integrations across third-party services as well as access to your own internal services and data. OneGraph uses GraphQL as a modern standard for connecting these services, using great tooling that’s fast, extensible, and reliable. We’re excited for a future where developers have a unified way to access the APIs and services they choose on Netlify. OneGraph’s co-founders Sean Grove and Daniel Woefel will be leading API ecosystem strategy here at Netlify and an integral part of the engineering team.

While fully integrating OneGraph into Netlify will take some time, we’re excited to announce the first step in making multi-app service integrations easier – officially launching API Authentication, through Netlify Labs. With one-click in the Netlify UI, you can now generate and manage authentication tokens for a catalog of third-party APIs. The feature is available to all Netlify users from the Netlify Labs dashboard.

Gilbane Advisor 11-17-21 — Digital humans, relative units

This week we have articles from Christine Vallaure and Simon Yuen. News comes from The Enterprise Knowledge Graph Foundation (EKGF), BA Insight, MediaValet and FFW, Kyndryl and Microsoft, and Lucid.

Opinion / Analysis

An era of digital humans

The process to create a digital human is extremely labor-intensive and manual. NVIDIA is researching tools and developing ways to accelerate and simplify digital human creation — and we believe AI and simulation is the key to doing this.

Simon Yuen leads NVIDIA’s Digital Human efforts and explains what they are doing to make digital humans more realistic and useful for a wide range of applications. There are also a couple of fascinating short videos.

Why designers should move from px to rem — and how to do that in Figma

If you are anything like me, you happily used Pixel (px) in Sketch and Figma during the past years without thinking much about it. It is the unit they gave me. Surely it is correct, and if not, the development team can fix that, no? Plus, there are a lot of people saying my design should be pixel perfect, right?

Christine Vallaure points out that designing only with pixels conflicts with accessibility requirements, and then provides a deep dive on why, and what can be done about it. She is writing for other designers, and developers, but the article will be illuminating for anyone interested in web design and/or accessibility.
