    Did you try to remove all those fancy / 3rd party plugins?

    With all this hype for Sketch 43 has now an editable file format - let me remind you, they had it in the past, but ditched because of serious performance issues. Fingers crossed that they tackled file format right way this time. I'm not gonna jump right away on this update band wagon.

    I read that this car thing is being dropped. Now they're more into partnering with existing carmakers source

  • Posted to How I sent 7000 emails for 0.7$, in reply to Samuel Zeller , Aug 24, 2016

    You're using shared hosting, they can ban you for sending too much emails thru their server. Why? Sending bulk email campaigns will affect their servers and other clients on this machine, they don't want to get banned from Google/Yahoo or whatever.

    From their TOS:

    We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam. "Safe lists" and purchased lists will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice.

    Sorry for being that guy, but it's a big thing for hosting companies and your account not going to last long.

    Great talk Pasquale. I enjoyed from the audience, almost died when you talked about the background. Overall push.conf every year gets better.

    Andy, I agree with you that 100% remote team based on great communication can work. Try put yourself in situation where you are remote and rest of the team is sitting together at different location. Another one is where your product owner & design team is in bay area (PDT), you are in Europe (+9h to PDT) and QA team is in China (+15h to PDT). Sometimes for me it was crazy ride.

    I just quit my job where remotely worked ~3yrs with my UX team and remote clients. Company hires ~350ppl, has few locations in Europe, but if you're the only designer at location it's super hard to exchange knowledge, get proper feedback/insights etc. You're becoming Slack/Skype/Hangouts ninja.

    Being on site with your fellow coworkers designers, engineering, product owners has one big advantage - you ship better products. There's no better way of figuring shit out when you just sit with the team. If you need "full focus mode", put the headphones on and do your job. It's totally fine to go out and work form the cafe, park, but constantly working from home narrows your point of view.
