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.


Ivy and Derek were talking about what it means to do “the bare minimum” and why that’s really the first thing to accomplish – before doing any more than the bare minimum. Which sounds funny.

So what is the bare minimum? And how long does that take Derek to get it in place? (for this stage of the course)

The bare minimum (done) – is always better than – anything that isn’t done (even if it might have been amazing).

Here we go!

(I also spent 45 more minutes playing with it after that while the video rendered and uploaded)

We would certainly expect this to take you a lot longer than 2 hours. But hopefully, this just gives you another way to think about it – now that you know what all this stuff is! 🙂

Take a look at the code (the PHP and everything). Ideally, everything here would be very familiar now. If not, let’s make it so!
