Be nice. Or else.

I use my own site Wookmark. Started building it years ago. To be honest, it still has a long way to go (e.g. screenshot functionality, better collaboration, Sketch plugin), but it works great for me and I'm continuously improving it. If you end up taking a look, would love to get your feedback.
For anybody interested in importing their Ffffound accounts to Wookmark, just create a Wookmark account (20$/year) and reply with your account info. I have an import script that works great (just imported a Ffffound account with 5000 images earlier this week).
Looks interesting, but the landing page is too sparse to get a good idea of what it does. Could not find a blog post or even Tweet about it. Is this an internal tool? Or a small side project?
All good. We should also find out who developed it and give that credit. Would be amazing to always have insight into who designs and builds all the great work that's shown here on DN.
Designed by Anton & Irene.
Make sure you actually need all those new shiny tools. Many of these things are industry-grade tools for big companies like Facebook, Pinterest, etc that have tons of developers and highly complex services. Most websites and smaller teams don't need all of this and you can happily live with something technically simpler. No need for a professional kitchen when all you're making is a sandwich.
CodeKit has made my life much easier working with things like SASS, Jade, JS, etc. They have a great video section with lots of tutorials.
I'd just start with one thing at a time. Maybe just build a static page in Jade and SASS and use a build tool of your choice (or CodeKit) and become comfortable in those. Then pick up some JS library you are interested in and just focus on that. You could very easily lose yourself in all this new tooling, so I'd be very strategic about what you learn and how much time you invest.
"Stealing" is the wrong term. It implies taking something from someone against their will. Makes for a nice headline though.
This is really about the "imitate, internalize, improve" learning process. First, you straight-out copy something you admire. By doing that, you understand how it it works. Then you can take your own spin on it and apply the techniques/styles/etc in the future on your own work.
Remixing others work is really great for a platform like Dribbble, where a lot of things are posted for fun.
Did you see any details on them? All I could find was the placeholder page for requesting an invite.
Congrats to your team. This is some really beautiful work all around. Great execution on the brand guide as well. I'll study this closely :)
Agree. I also got a ton of direct, harsh feedback starting out that I really appreciated, from people way more talented than me. And that's great, as long as it's valid and has the "Focus on x, y and z" part that's actually helpful. To me, Eli just has the harshness without the helpfulness. And I just find that one-sidedness useless.
While I found the overall interview really insightful, this was a super lame way to end it. People grow from insightful, constructive criticism, and not from attacks. "Honesty" does not make an attack any better.
