    Some good content here, but one major area for improvement is above the fold."Learn React Unleash Your Design Superpowers" is pretty generic. What makes your course different? For example, you could say "A premium training course to build real-world apps in React ", "Learn React by itself without npm, webpack, redux, router, and all the other fluff.", or "Learn React by drawing in React" Or even simpler. "Finally, a React course for designer by designers". :)

    Great marketer and storyteller, but probably not the partner's fault it failed. Opening a Shopify store to learn how to run an online marketplace is like selling cookies outside of Walmart to learn how to start a community farmer's market. Start with research to find a niche marketplace need, then learn how to build/setup an online marketplace, make a prototype to validate your idea, then hire partners to help you do the things you can't do yourself.

    I'm more analytical than opinion-based on this subject, so i've read tons on studies on remote work vs in-person work. Most everything I've read has shown at large increases in employee productivity from working remotely. Also, people who like working from home are more likely to intentionally work harder to prove that working from home is a benefit to their employer.

    I wouldn't say they aren't innovative anymore. Apple Pay, Apple Watch, new Apple TV, shipped 4 new microprocessors in 2016, arguably fastest phone on the market, and the list goes on. It is true that they aren't innovating on the really cool new stuff as quickly as they used to. Also, Jobs had a very high IQ and believed he could change the world. Traditionally, CEOs don't usually have IQ's as high as a Jobs or Musk. Cook is very good at maximizing revenue, not necessarily an innovator (which short term isn't a bad thing for Apple).

  • Posted to How to choose which login flow to build?, Jun 03, 2017

    If your site is public (anyone and everyone can sign up) and your goal is to boost conversion rates/simplify the login process than social login is a great solution. On the other hand, if you are building an app for a certain target business/industry such as healthcare or industrial then social login would be pointless.

  • Posted to What kind of car should a UX designer use?, Feb 27, 2017

    That's a good question, but it depends on who the user is. Automatic is great because it's easy to use and has a low learning curve. For the majority of users, simple is much better. For some, manual is better because of the improved gas mileage, easier to maintain, and the experience of driving them is fun.
