PSoC Creator 4.1 - New Start Page
A few months ago a colleague in our web team told us that the PSoC Creator News and Information was one of the most frequently accessed pages on cypress.com. Being the humble folk that we are... we were quite surprised. Then we became insufferably smug because, it turns out, we were never really as humble as we thought. Oh well!
So we took a closer look at the page. It became immediately obvious that, while the blogs section is working well (when we remember to write to it), there is a ridiculously long list of content down the left hand side that no-one is using. We had a "cannot see the wood for the trees" problem! Almost all of the content is readily found on cypress.com, so we trimmed out all those links and made a far more streamlined interface.
The new page is far cleaner than before. There are just three sections. Under Learn you will find the News and Information (default view), plus a couple of new pages talking about new features in the latest release and some information to help new users get started with the product. In the Start section you can quickly create or open projects. And the Recent section lists your most-recently used projects so you don't forget where you saved them.
We think it's a nice improvement. But we already know that we are not exactly humble about these things. What do you think? We always welcome feedback and opinion via firstname.lastname@example.org so drop us a line.
