“Designeveloper — a Practical Designer’s Guide to Next-level Your Developexpertise” Presentation – WordCamp Philly ’15

Over the course of my 4 years at WebDevStudios, I made the transition from a web designer to a developer and now even, a developer lead. I aim to give some practical insights and resources to help make that designer/developer transition and learning curve a little less scary. Maybe… even a little exciting.
