Learn Enough Design to be Dangerous
I hear lots of developers say “Oh, I could never be a designer; I just don’t have the eye” – and I’m here to tell you that’s BS. Design is a skill that can be learned, just like anything else! A designer’s full responsibilities are complex and multifaceted; this talk won’t teach you everything you need to know to get a design job. However, it WILL go over design basics in a straightforward way, for developers who want to create UIs that don’t look terrible.
Kathryn Grayson Nanz is a developer advocate at Progress with a passion for React, UI and design and sharing with the community. She started her career as a graphic designer and was told by her Creative Director to never let anyone find out she could code because she’d be stuck doing it forever. She ignored his warning and has never been happier. You can find her writing, blogging, streaming and tweeting about React, design, UI and more. You can find her at @kathryngrayson on Twitter.
