Hi Alex, what parts specifically are outdated?
Thanks to the feedback I got here and elsewhere, I was able to correct mistakes. I also included a bit more on animation in the post.
I guess you mean Figma and InVision Studio having Electron apps and not real native apps? Contrary to what I expected, I haven't found that to affect performance. In fact, Sketch (about which they say there's no Windows version because they can only make it perform well on Mac) seems to be the slowest with files with lots of screens, especially when zooming and panning. Opening a design in Figma can take several seconds, but I do that only a few times a day.
Sure, let's continue in DMs!
Haha nice, it seems you had a good time doing it. I was a bit grumpy when I read it and thought why the hell does a company of that size need somebody to do a project that big in their spare time. I take it back though.
Thanks Charles! I can see how you wouldn't agree with my verdict, but I was still on Version 0.94.20 from July 24. Would you recommend using InVision Studio today on production work?
Keyframe animation is in the feature comparison table, but I could highlight that in the text better.
Is there anything that I missed that would affect my recommendations?
We got to stop doing this in our spare time
It depends on your school, but here are some things I consider invaluable about my Industrial Design Engineering degree:
edit: I only now read that you’re considering an organizational degree. My gut feeling is that would be mainly useful but not required in large orgs. In smaller companies knowing the field in which it operates is more relevant. Unless you want to do consulting. Anyway I would only study something that I would enjoy studying, regardless of its usefulness.
Thanks to Bevan and Gavin’s comments I changed my mind about this issue! My analogy with clothing was not helpful. FWIW, I wrote a follow-up: https://www.kooslooijesteijn.net/blog/brutalism-not-great-for-looking-relatable
Regarding the benefit of componies having more resources: a friend brought up that open source potentially have even more contributors/contribution.
