Build Stuff That You’d Use

As a designer or developer, keeping up with and growing your skillset can be challenging. However, figuring out what to do with those skills once you have them can be even more difficult. In this presentation, we’ll explore the reasons and mentality behind building things for yourself, how to come up with ideas that can lead to enhancing your work and workflow, shipping those ideas even when they aren’t perfect, and creating things that other people might even pay to use.

    Thanks for giving the talk, Dave. Great flow, very conversational in nature, and plenty of good reminders no matter what (or for who) you are building!

    I had this on my calendar (a friend told me about it) but just found the group to RSVP. Any chance I can still attend?

    I didn't get an RSVP question when I RSVPed to add my name... Did it save my response from last time?
