Okay, so shoot me. It’s been a while since I’ve updated and I am ashamed to say that a lot of that time has not been spent programming. I did however manage to get some work done.
While teaching myself how to program again, I wanted to improve my sorely lacking design skills. I ended up finding a website, Hack Design dedicated to improving programmers front-end abilities. The website is divided into twelve sections, introduction to design, typography, user experience, user interface, graphic design principles, mobile, interaction design, front-end design, product design, advanced user interface, advanced user experience, and context and next steps. Each section has multiple subsections with various articles, and each week your supposed to complete a subsection (i.e. read all the articles in the subsection). So far, I’m a fan. Some articles I’ve read are a little advanced, and go over my head, but overall I believe that it has already improved my design ability. I’ll update more the farther I get into the program.
Feel free to check it out on codepen, and I would love any feedback you guys could give me.
