  • Posted to Ask DN: Significance of design education?, Feb 20, 2013

    We've built a great design team at Disqus. When building the team education never came up. Not even once. I'd say it was at least partially because the founders, myself, and the people around us didn't have degrees. Our lead engineer at the time was a high school drop out.

    Instead we looked for real experience, good taste, and how the candidate approached problems.

    As a dropout, my advice would be to dive in and build real things for real people. In this industry nothing beats actual experience.
