One week to go in August! September is looking especially exciting for me…next week I’m starting a new job! I’m joining R/GA here in Portland as an experience designer and I am so. excited!
More exciting news: near the end of next month I’m teaching a two-day Intro to HTML & CSS class for the brand new Portland chapter of Girl Develop It. I can’t wait to help some awesome women make their first websites!
Also I wanted to direct you to Learn to Code with Me, a fantastic blog by Laurence Bradford who happens to be one of the nicest people on the ‘net. She interviewed me recently for her Women in Tech feature. Check out the rest of the blog if you’re a new programmer (or are code-curious) and want help and motivation to keep pushing through the bugs.
Okay okay I think that’s all my news. (Whatta month!) Here are a few articles I’ve enjoyed over the past week—use ’em to kick your brain on this morning.
- Sometimes the best way to clarify a complex concept is to give yourself restraints. I’m loving the method described in Write better walkthroughs with the 3×3 Method.
- Zurb has long been one of my fav companies and their latest Foundation update only solidifies my feelings: Foundation Now Helps You Build Accessible Sites.
- Ever wonder What is Product Design?
Have a great Monday!
