    I admit that its buggy. But it works most of the times. And also this was my side project and I did it for fun over the weekends.

    The goal is to make it better and stable :) Let hope we will reach there.

    You can customize the components. This was really a side project for me and I was just focusing on Material as that is what they use in my Company.

    Its generally a lot of work to make each component work, and actually some components are easy to build some or not. I would love to see the community building for design style guides.

    That is pretty much the limitation of the slides. All the slides will have equal heights and widths.

    And again its not a replacement for invision or google gallery.

    We at Google use google slides to make our design presentations and share it will different stockholders and quickly get feedback on designs. As its much faster and simpler and everyone knows how to use it.

    And moreover the versioning (slides version history) and assigning comment to people is extremely useful in our case. :)

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

    I'm a recent grad with a CS and HCI degree. I love doing UI dev & UX design. When I was trying to find a job after graduation I realized that UX Engineering positions are not that popular and Its hard to find the position.

    So, either I had to brand myself as a Front-end Developer(JS/Angular/Ember etc.) or an Interaction Designer(Just do pure design and leave the rest to Engineering team) to find a job.

    And also I was told that(this may not be completely true), UI/UX Engineers are generally paid less than Interaction Designers/UX Designers. And also UI Engineers in some places are branded under UX Designers are seen as people who build what designers say. I would love to know more thoughts about this.

    So to check that I did an Front-end dev internship at a decently big company and realized that how less they cared about design. Which made me to brand myself as an Interaction designer moving forward even though I get paid a lot more as a developer.

    And not to mention, I know a ton of UX Designer who are really good at UI Dev they understand OOCSS, SASS or paint times etc. But they don't brand them self as a UI Dev.

    And I guess with the increasing number of new tools and techniques makes us focus less on CSS, for example frameworks like Angular 2, React, Polymer.

    To conclude though I'm really love doing UI Dev. I had to brand myself as a Designer to land on my dream job. That being said I satisfy my UI Dev craving by doing side project on the weekends.

    Yes, there can be lot of people thinking UI Dev is not the coolest job or they don't get paid much. May be you should change the job description a bit and let the people know that they are equal to any other designer/developer.

    I would really love to know everyones thoughts on this.
