How do fonts influence the way you type?

When you think of communication, you might first think of phone calls, text messages or two people talking. As you think longer about it, sentence structure and tone of voice might come to mind. Some things said sarcastically can be laughable or amusing, but when said with a serious tone, it’ll give you the creeps.

What you might not think of when evoking communication is a font. Fonts are not so commonly associated with communication, but in fact, can heavily influence our perception of what is being communicated.

With the mobile keyboard being at the forefront of modern communication, we take great responsibility in offering highly usable and legible fonts on Fleksy, while still keeping them fun and pleasing to the eye.

To better understand what it takes to choose fonts and what they imply, we interviewed our Chief Design Officer, Vicky Gerchinhoren.


Could you introduce yourself and what fonts mean to you?

I have always been in love with letters, I have a background in Graphic Design, so it is kinda natural. I have been studying and practicing calligraphy, which is the art of manually writing beautiful text, for over a decade and I teach Interface Design and the use of text on screens at Elisava, Barcelona´s top Design University. Graphic Design is different art disciplines because it is about communicating something visually — such as a message, that needs to be carried through and conveyed. Whereas illustrations or other types of visual arts are only for the purpose of expressing. Because you cannot accurately communicate everything with images, the text needs to be neatly represented in compositions.

There are different types of letters and the thing with alphabets and scripts is that they carry a lot of meaning in their shapes. The same way you communicate things through styles, textures, colors and everything else, the shape of the text itself has meaning too.

“How you say something can be more important than what you say!”


When you think of brands, what are some that come to mind for having a font that best reflects their personality?

Adidas, because they have this very modular, thick logo that goes along with it and the stripes which are a very simple idea. I think the font there has the same rationale behind it, which is very neat and bold. Adidas is making a statement with very few elements. However, the thing that interests me more is how brands are developing their own typefaces. They’re creating their fonts to fit their brand’s needs.

One of them is Netflix. They decided to create their own font and have it match the cinemascope curve of their logo. It is a distinctive piece of brand DNA ported to the display text. Their new typeface could be used on big screens while also making it legible on smaller displays such as phones. A few other familiar brands with tailored typefaces are Airbnb which developed “Cereal,” Apple with “San Francisco,” IBM with its family of fonts called “Plex”, and Google with its new “GoogleSans” typeface.

Back onto Fleksy, how did you decide to elect the Gilroy typeface for the brand?

We ended up choosing Gilroy for its nice circular shapes that are friendly and inviting. It has amplitude, it’s very geometric, clear and it doesn’t have any additives. The ligature between the “F” and “L” from “fleksy” was also very pleasing to the eye, adding up to the logo style.

While the font is being used in our logo and communication materials, we only recently added it as a font option for our keyboard. We originally chose to use Roboto for our app settings in order to improve legibility. Roboto has also been proven to be space-efficient, which is important when you’re confined to a screen size of 9:18, and even less as a keyboard.

Basic Data Types in Python | Python Web Development For Beginners

At the end of 2019, Python is one of the fastest-growing programming languages. More than 10% of developers have opted for Python development.

In the programming world, Data types play an important role. Each Variable is stored in different data types and responsible for various functions. Python had two different objects, and They are mutable and immutable objects.

Table of Contents  hide

I Mutable objects

II Immutable objects

III Built-in data types in Python

Mutable objects

The Size and declared value and its sequence of the object can able to be modified called mutable objects.

Mutable Data Types are list, dict, set, byte array

Immutable objects

The Size and declared value and its sequence of the object can able to be modified.

Immutable data types are int, float, complex, String, tuples, bytes, and frozen sets.

id() and type() is used to know the Identity and data type of the object

a**=25+**85j

type**(a)**

output**:<class’complex’>**

b**={1:10,2:“Pinky”****}**

id**(b)**

output**:**238989244168

Built-in data types in Python

a**=str(“Hello python world”)****#str**

b**=int(18)****#int**

c**=float(20482.5)****#float**

d**=complex(5+85j)****#complex**

e**=list((“python”,“fast”,“growing”,“in”,2018))****#list**

f**=tuple((“python”,“easy”,“learning”))****#tuple**

g**=range(10)****#range**

h**=dict(name=“Vidu”,age=36)****#dict**

i**=set((“python”,“fast”,“growing”,“in”,2018))****#set**

j**=frozenset((“python”,“fast”,“growing”,“in”,2018))****#frozenset**

k**=bool(18)****#bool**

l**=bytes(8)****#bytes**

m**=bytearray(8)****#bytearray**

n**=memoryview(bytes(18))****#memoryview**

Numbers (int,Float,Complex)

Numbers are stored in numeric Types. when a number is assigned to a variable, Python creates Number objects.

#signed interger

age**=**18

print**(age)**

Output**:**18

Python supports 3 types of numeric data.

int (signed integers like 20, 2, 225, etc.)

float (float is used to store floating-point numbers like 9.8, 3.1444, 89.52, etc.)

complex (complex numbers like 8.94j, 4.0 + 7.3j, etc.)

A complex number contains an ordered pair, i.e., a + ib where a and b denote the real and imaginary parts respectively).

String

The string can be represented as the sequence of characters in the quotation marks. In python, to define strings we can use single, double, or triple quotes.

# String Handling

‘Hello Python’

#single (') Quoted String

“Hello Python”

# Double (") Quoted String

“”“Hello Python”“”

‘’‘Hello Python’‘’

# triple (‘’') (“”") Quoted String

In python, string handling is a straightforward task, and python provides various built-in functions and operators for representing strings.

The operator “+” is used to concatenate strings and “*” is used to repeat the string.

“Hello”+“python”

output**:****‘Hello python’**

"python "*****2

'Output : Python python ’

Python typing and validation with mypy and pydantic.

Python is a dynamically typed programming language, which means the types are only checked at runtime and a variable is allowed to change its type over its lifetime, whereas a statically typed language like Java checks the types at compile-time, and a variable is not allowed to change its type over its lifetime. On the other hand, Python is a strongly typed language because the types cannot be automatically converted at runtime. For example, you cannot have an addition calculation on integer 1 and string "2", while in a weakly typed language such as JavaScript such calculation is allowed.

Even though dynamic typing can make it faster to write Python code in the development stage, it is also very easy to introduce bugs and errors which can only be identified at runtime. Besides, with no type definitions, the code can be more difficult to read and maintain. For example, you need to read through a function to get to know what type of data would be returned by it. However, with type hints or type annotations, the return type of a function can be known immediately. Once a program is developed, you would rarely need to rewrite or redesign it. However, it is much more common that you or your colleagues need to read or maintain it after some time. Therefore, making the code easier to read would be very important, especially if you work in a team where people have to review each other’s code.

Typing has become more and more important in Python and the type hint standards introduced in PEP484 make it possible and easy to add type annotations to your Python code. After type hints have been added to a Python file, the mypy library can be used to do static type checking before it is run. Besides, pydantic, a data validation library using Python type annotations, can enforce type hints at runtime and provide user-friendly errors when data is invalid.

Stretching the Reach of Implicitly Typed Variables in C#

Image for post

Type inference is a common feature among mainstream programming languages. The functional ones, like ML and Haskell, are pioneers in exploring this programming paradigm where the declaration of a variable or a function may omit a type annotation. Today, even classic imperative languages such as C++ offer, to a certain extent, a kind of type inference.

C# is not an exception to the ever-increasing popularity of inference-enabled languages: since C# 3.0, developers may declare implicitly typed variables with the var keyword (in C++ 11, a similar feature was introduced — re-targeting the then-existing auto keyword). This functionality, however, falls under a provision: a declaration must be accompanied by an initializer.

Although one would not expect to see ML and Haskell’s “whole-program type inference” in C#, could this initializer requirement be relaxed? Why does it exist, altogether?

  • Is it due to any limitation or just a matter of taste?
  • Could the variable’s type be inferred from arbitrary expressions?
  • If yes, what are trade-offs from a language-design perspective?

In this article, I will describe the foundation of a standard type inference technique and ramble about the questions above.

Non-initializing Declarations

What do you answer when someone asks: why is it necessary, in C#, that a local var-declared variable is accompanied with an _initializer? _The accurate reply to this question is: because the language specification says so; it is not because the type would not be inferable otherwise. Consider function f.

The two statements above (a declaration- and an expression-statement) are not fundamentally different from the single statement var num = 42;. In fact, if permitted, the _Intermediate Language _(IL) code produced for the former would probably be equal to that produced for the latter. Also, one may easily observe that int is a valid replacement for var in f.

To set the stage for our discussion, let us quote — with minor adjustments for pedagogical reasons — the relevant fragment of the C# specification to which var is subject:

“When the local variable type is specified as var… the declaration is an implicitly typed local variable declaration, whose type is inferred from the type of the associated initializer expression.”

Another characteristic of C# is that a variable must be definitely assigned before we attempt to obtain its value. Let us also quote the language specification fragment that states such mandatory assignment.

“For an initially unassigned variable to be considered definitely assigned… , an assignment to the variable must occur in every possible execution path…”

It is not my intent to enter the pedantic realm of language specifications. Yet, based on our (informal) observation that var num; num = 42; is equivalent to var num = 42;; and the fact that a variable must be assigned before being used, could we slightly stretch the functionality provided by var?
