We're talking with the authors of A Boot Apart's latest book: Design for Real Life. Sara Wachter-Boettcher and Eric Meyer chat about designig for stress cases as opposed to edge cases: does your app or website take into account what a person might be going through when they're trying to use it?
This week we were joined by Julie Ann Horvath, designer and developer for &yet. Julie has recently been the subject of tech news headlines because of her public resignation from her previous employer (Github) due to sexism and harassment. It's a heavy and traumatic topic, but we're thankful to Julie for sharing her experience so we can grow as a community and prevent these types of unfortunate events in the future.
*Note: Within minutes of wrapping this episode, Brendan Eich stepped down as CEO.*
This week we were joined by Mina Markham, a Sass-lovin' designer and developer from Dallas, Texas. She's a Syracuse University alum, part-time freelancer, full-time Parago employee, and soon-to-be Girl Develop It teacher.
