Thank you! Great topics and very useful information.
Thank you for sending the recording. I was unable to attend.
Great discussion, especially Jeffrey's comments on graphic design. Do it again soon!
"We still teach tools. We don't teach underlying concepts." Exactly this. Other than digging into the manual it's hard to find sources that truly teach the core of CSS, HTML, and JS, especially JS. It's easy to find tutorials that don't teach. They just say follow these steps to get "X". But then I've only followed steps and not really understood the "why".
Awesome nuggets of info!
Thanks for a great update on the industry! I couldn't attend the LIVE one, and up until today I'm s able to watch the video. Really informative!
Hey. Thanks. Those of us hungry for more information can feast here!
Thank you for this video. The discussion touches upon a lot of concerns that I have working as a web developer.
Great discussion. My wife is exploring front-end development, starting with HTML and CSS. I totally agree that teaching the why of JS is especially important but lacking. I have been searching for and trying to learn JS under the hood for a while now with difficulty.
Thanks for the feedback folks! Feel free to hit us up on Twitter with additional questions: @zeldman and @aarongustafson.
A pep talk is no where near as useful as an honest chat about the current state of web design. it's good to see that seasoned and emerging designers all have the same sea of information to wade through as new comers and find it just as daunting.
Nice work guys.
Love this analogy – "If you don't know how to fix the car, you're kinda screwed. All you know how to do is drive the car." It would be so fabulous to know what the tools are actually doing rather than just learning the tools.
Thank you for the recording! Wasn't able to attend.
Thank you for this!
Thank you for this recording that gave me some much needed encouragement about bringing my skills up to date.
