Frontend Masters
Just finished Design for Developers by Sarah Drasner on Frontend Masters.

What an amazing course! I learned a lot about design, CSS tricks, grids, layouts and compositions, photoshop tricks, typography, image optimization, and prototyping. Can't wait to put this knowledge into practice now :)

Here's my final design from the exercises: 

That photoshop grid has come a long way :D also a big fan of all the architecture & Swiss design references.

Thank you so much for this great course!

I wrote (another) book! It's called Engineering Management for the Rest of Us.

A lot of Engineering Managers and leaders studied for years and years to become the best Engineer they possibly could be… and then they were promoted.

It can be very tough for those of us who didn’t go into Engineering with the distinct concept that we would become managers, but still want to do our best to support our teams.
