1. Being a web designer sure isn’t getting any less complex. It’s not just design and some HTML and CSS these days. In addition to visual design skill and good UX intuition, front end folks should be working locally, using version control, using preprocessors, writing JavaScript, thinking about performance, testing their work across different browsers and devices, and more. Don’t worry though! This isn’t complexity for the sake of complexity, these tools make working on websites better. We’ll go through all of these things, so you can get a bird’s eye view of the entire workflow.

Let’s talk about how code can be a type of writing, and how we might use literary techniques to shape our software.

  5. I have spent the last three years working on, primarily by myself in my spare time, a web app called Stellar, which collects your social media favorites all in one place. It was easy to build and also difficult to build. I’ll share what I’ve learned while building it and what I’m still struggling with. And maybe we can help each other figure out how to make it easy for more people to make their own apps and what to do with them once they’re out in the world.
