Hi, there. You're not logged in. So, you must be a visitor. Welcome!
What is this? You are viewing one of our supplemental "Stories." In addition to our core design curriculum, we are constantly building out additional resources. Stories are a collection of real work tasks, design history, UX explorations, and work-throughs. Stories are often off-the-cuff and less concerned with production value.
Derek talks about Career Karma and how that works. It’s essentially a gamified high-pressure sales system. If you want to be forcefully sold on a random boot camp – it’s really great.
But – more than that, this video is about learning. Developers learn things – all the time. But they aren’t just watching a video. You learn in the wild! With real situations.
We’ll also talk about #hustling and gaming the system for SEO and marketing.
On this edition of SUPER EXPERIENCE USER EXPERTS DOT COM, we talk about – just how many different things there are to think about in a project.
It’s not just a wire-frame… or some code… it’s really 3-dimensional learning.
There’s research, strategy, business/marketing, user interactions, SEO tactics, detective work, some lite client-side web scraping, learning when to ask for help – or just when to talk to someone about your task, and we even re-create a component from the site with HTML and CSS.
These events are slightly fabricated to bring out the thought process and show how a Jr. developer’s job really is in most cases. You have to think about A LOT of things… not just ‘code.’
It’s an hour long… but – keep in mind, if you’re going to be a developer/design – then you’re going to be doing this for AT LEAST 7 hours a day… so, you’d better enjoy the process! 😉
(It took Derek 8 hours to make!! haha… so, we hope you get something out of it. Let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org)
