  • Posted to Ask DN: Where are all the UI engineers?, Sep 01, 2016

    These kinds of designers most likely already have great jobs, don't live in New York, or aren't willing to work full time. I just moved from NYC but half of my time there was spent as a freelancer. I actually found it difficult to find a front-end development position that was mostly geared towards modular Sass, styleguides, large-scale css, etc.

    That's not the original, that's a post made in response to the original.

    I was one of the first people to bring this issue up, before DN even really announced the t-shirts.

    I'm a woman, and the reason this is important and worth talking about is because of the tone and attitude DN seems to take when choosing to offer only Mens shirts. Even if the shirts were indeed "unisex", they were consciously labeled as shirts for Men, not just shirts. As other women on this thread have mentioned, one of the repercussions of the t-shirt fiasco was that it creates a space that is not safe or welcoming for women.

    Granted, I doubt DN had those intentions - or any bad intentions for that matter. But this is a community, a community where we should be able to challenge the status quo and expect more from ourselves and leadership.


    Should we just accept the microaggressions, saying nothing about inequality?

    Should we not expect more from DN, from ourselves?

    Maybe talking about this kind of stuff will show decision makers and leaders that sexism in tech is real. Worth being concerned about. Worth trying to fix.

    Word of advice:

    Your age literally has nothing to do with your skillset, talent, or ability to do good work. It will only bring you down; don't mention it at all.

    In our office, we cut off orders after a certain amount of time, b/c the lunches are scheduled and we need to place the order by a certain time so it can arrive on time.
