design + development
Two sides of the same coin, really, but also weirdly separate a lot of the time. Let’s change that by demystifying topics on both sides. No better way to work better together than to learn together!
There are lots of classes, courses, and training materials out there, but there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of spaces to have less formal conversations and information-sharing around design & development topics, so that’s what I’m hoping to create.
I’m thinking this will be informal, with a short initial (10-15 minute) presentation followed by open discussion/ conversation. Sort of like what you’d have at if you met up with a bunch of friends to talk about a topic related to your work, but with a bit of guidance and info to start off with.
I’m still getting set up as far the organization of such an effort, and am thinking about ways to extend the idea into ongoing conversations about creating a better internet together rather than in our design/dev silos, but in the meantime I set up a quick MailChimp list so I can let you know when the first discussion rolls around.
The site is now live, so you can go there to check out upcoming discussions, suggest additional topics, etc.
