“Designeveloper — a Practical Designer’s Guide to Next-level Your Developexpertise” Presentation – WordCamp Philly ’15
Bridging the designer/developer gap is a challenge not often accepted. Designers who are comfortable in PHP and in the ‘back-end’ of WordPress are rare enough that we’ve coined the term ‘unicorn’ to describe them. My personal favorite is ‘designeveloper’ (yep, it’s even on my Twitter bio). My transition began from a house painter and part-time graphic designer to a web designer for WebDevStudios. 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.
