Today, Search and Discovery experiences are essential on any ecommerce website, and end-user expectations keep getting higher and higher. At the same time, building experiences with great UI and UX design remains complex and time-consuming.
From day one, our mission at Algolia has always been to “Empower every business to create delightful experiences” that can create joy and trust among users and drive business goals.
We added new advanced features to our platform and constantly improved our front-end libraries, for example, InstantSearch and Algolia Autocomplete so that all developers can build those experiences quickly.
At the same time, we realized that we hadn’t done enough to provide you with enough guidance and resources for the UI and UX design to build fully functional, performant, and enjoyable experiences.
