Dan Benjamin and Jeffrey Zeldman talk with Jason Fried, CEO and co-founder of 37 Signals.
Ethan Marcotte is the man who brought the concept of responsive design to the web from the world of architecture.
We would think that, in order to achieve such a feat, Ethan would have to know his tools inside and out just to begin to use them to manipulate the world around him.
But is that the case? How much do we need to know about our tools in order to produce something remarkable?
Jeffrey Zeldman is the godfather of web design. His role in promoting web standards to the community has been instrumental in advancing the way we build and view websites today. But his job is to be a designer. So how do you recognise something that needs to be done and then decide that you are the person to do it?
Jeffrey takes us through his decision making process that has led to him developing A List Apart, An Event Apart and A Book Apart, as well as hosting The Big Web Show, managing his design agency and writing books about web design. Then we talk about the importance of giving something back to the community to ensure longevity.
This week our question comes from one of our subscribers, Ellis Taylor.
Ellis replied to last weeks newsletter and asked about best practices when it comes to loading in additional content at various breakpoints.
This week we welcome freelance UX consultant, Jenn Downs to the show. Jenn shares what she’s learned since her first talk and how she got started speaking. (She even wrote an article about it, too.) She tells us how important it is to watch yourself on video even if it sounds like the hardest thing ever, and how she got over her fear of public speaking to get up on stage.
For the past 6 years, Jenn Downs swung her way through the jungle at MailChimp from support to tech writing to UX Design Research. But in January of 2014 she was bitten by the entrepreneurship bug and left MailChimp to start a family business. She is now the Business/Tech Manager for Carpenter Koby Downs in Atlanta. Never one to only do one thing at a time, Jenn is also a freelance UX and email marketing consultant and a mentor for Code for America. Outside of being web nerd, Jenn is also a songwriter and plays bass and guitar in a few bands in Atlanta.
