    Everything started with Instagram...

    I would like to learn some java and get some certifications I've been delaying for ages.

    Few weeks ago I wrote my first design related article and I enjoyed it very much so I'd like to keep writing and improving my writing skills along the way.

    Those goals are very good! Remember that you can learn swift with Apple's Playgrounds.

    BTW, I did the same in 2009, a 5 months backpacking trip in Asia and afterwards got a huge retainer that allowed me open my studio. Good luck!

    After Instagram's anything is possible...

    Now seriously, is it me or the red stripes create optical misalignment?

    "I think by now, in our space, meaning the space of design, it sort of took on the mantle of bullshit… now everyone’s a storyteller.”

    For the non-fanboys: anyone who cares about customers need: battery life, better storage, fast processor, memory...

    For the others: yo are right, their OS and ecosystem is still unbeatable.

    Just registered my account, looks great! Also a very interesting concept.

    A few things:

    • Contrast is too low in general but especially on the menu items labels.
    • Sidebar and content area only limited by one line. When too many elements in a board the limit between sidebar and content will be weaker.
    • Font-size too small for my eyes

    You're right. Last product launches were a bit disappointing and outdated compared with some competitors.

    Nice article and a pretty useful way for reviewing design, thanks for sharing Pedro!

    There's one point that even I understand on behalf of objectivity, I have to disagree at a certain extent: leave opinions at the door. Let's see, no matter you are the moderator, the presenter or another stakeholder invited to the session, you will always have an opinion made as a professional, sometimes expert, hired to share your opinion and bring value to the table.

    I have the feeling that in the last years the design industry is dehumanizing itself in order to be taken more seriously, I'm not sure we should remove the human factor out of it.

    Thanks Derrick. It's not what I'm looking for b ut seems an interesting tool for design-dev teams.
