My two cents about software development on the web

Looking for yourself

But in watching Gerwig trounce around and walk too hard and use up all the space in a city, I realized that the problem wasn’t me, nor was it the way that I walk. The problem was my definition of femininity and how it wasn’t open enough to include me.

Words

At its heart, web design should be about words. Words don’t come after the design is done. Words are the beginning, the core, the focus.

Start with words.

Be represented by your work

This industry we work in is magical. For the first time in human history, it’s possible to be represented (almost) solely through the merits of your work. Build something magical, push it up to GitHub under a pseudonym, and you could become one of the most sought after programmers in the world.

That’s really fucking awesome.

There’s plenty of prejudice and intolerance in our world – and in our industry. But never forget that pixels don’t care.

One of The Greatest Times in History

We are living in one of the greatest times in history.

Never before could you work from anywhere on earth, with people you’ve never met, on projects that can reach the entire world.

Never before could you raise money from hundreds of complete strangers based on a video shot on your cellphone and edited in an afternoon.

Never before could you contribute $25 to the prosperity of a hopeful business owner in an impoverished country halfway around the globe, instantly, from your desk, just because you felt like it.

Never before could you access any knowledge within seconds, start learning something within minutes and find community on any topic, anytime.

Never before was it so easy to fulfill the promise of “you can do anything you put your mind to.”

NEVER before.

There are so many reasons this is one of the greatest times in history.

How are you going to take advantage of this incredible time?
