In our second episode, we discuss the wonderfully polarizing question, “should designers code?” We’d go so far as to say that this is the definitive guide to this question, as we remain as cool-headed, reasonable, and rational about the topic as is humanly possible. And you honestly will never need to read another article about it. Nor should you. The question of whether designers should code is now a solved problem.Not only is this episode more fun than flogging a dead unicorn, it also sports our new intro and outtro music, performed by Mr Pickering himself. We’ve also got a painfully proper transcription this time around.Please enjoy
047: The Web is Neither Good or Bad…nor is it Neutral. It’s an Amplifier with Jeremy Keith – User Defenders podcast : Inspiring Interviews with UX Superheroes.
Jeremy Keith reveals how the web is neither good or bad, nor neutral, but an amplifier. He inspires us to not let the future be just something that happens to us, but rather something we make with the small things we do today. He encourages us to build software ethically with our users’ psychological vulnerabilities in mind. He motivates us to not build on rented land, but to publish using the superpower of our own URLs. He also shows us how looking to the past is just as important as looking to the future.
Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers, and most recently Resilient Web Design. He curated the dConstruct conference for a number of years as well as Brighton SF, and he organised the world’s first Science Hack Day. He also made the website Huffduffer to allow people to make podcasts of found sounds—it’s like Instapaper for audio files. Hailing from Erin’s green shores, Jeremy maintains his link to Irish traditional music running the community site The Session. He also indulges a darker side of his bouzouki-playing in the band Salter Cane. Jeremy spends most of his time goofing off on the internet, documenting his time-wasting on adactio.com, where he has been writing for over fifteen years. A photograph he took appears in the film Iron Man.

Ada-Rose Edwards @LadyAdaKing is a Web Developer, Developer Advocate for Samsung Internet and self-proclaimed “Web Fangirl”. She’s been instrumental in the development of the Financial Times App, one of the first applications to use HTML5 to deliver a great cross-platform experience that rivaled the quality of native apps. She is based in London, England and you can find her on the web at ada.is.
We invited her to chat with Chris Heilmann about the concept of Progressive Web Apps, what new technologies like Service Worker mean for the web and a few more of the technologies she explained in her article “The Building Blocks of Progressive Web Apps“. She had a lot of great insights into application development for the web and tips and tricks how to make them work for everybody.
