UX & Code Articles + Freebies & Resources

Today's roundup is a mashup of the latest articles about UX and coding plus there's some great web designer freebies and resources. It's a wholesome mix of watercooler talk and essential reading.

First up we've got three fresh UX articles including TNW's look at 'Misleading interface design' followed by an interesting piece from Smashing Magazine called 'How to design interaction'. Then for something different, take a look at William Shatner's interesting user review of a new celebrity Facebook app via Mashable.

Next we've got 18 surprises found in jQuery from Quickleft, bizarre programming languages via Hongkiat and a nice piece on BEM Methodology for small projects, again via Smashing Magazine.

Freebies include an excellent one-page template and hipster badges thanks to Codrops with Flypixel providing some groovy backgrounds, an iPhone 5 gold psd download and some handy real estate icons to add to your kit.

If you're still hungry after all that then why not chow down on three new resources such as a free high resolution stock library named Raumrot, a free HD stock video site called Mazwai and Social Good Ipsum, the newest dummy text generator that has good intentions.
