"Web Designers vs. The Command Line - A story of leveling-up with front end technologies."
If you're a Web Designer that works with HTML+CSS, this talk by Ricardo Zea is for you.
An insight about how I was able to overcome complex explanations and tutorials. Weird terms for the Command Line. And scary config files.
Main goal? Learn how to use Sass and BrowserSync and improve my development workflow tenfold.
Ricardo Zea is a Sr. Web/Mobile Designer - Front End Developer originally from Colombia, currently working as team lead Sr. Web Designer at Axcess Financial, and formerly as Sr. Web Designer at LexisNexis.
He was also an Adobe Flash and CorelDRAW professor for about 4 years for Graphic Design students at the university he graduated from back in Colombia.
Always eager to share his knowledge and experience with fellow web professionals, especially beginners because there are a ton of things that tutorials and forums assume you know or don't really explain.
Whenever someone asks him "Are you more a Web Designer or a Front End guy?" he answers: "I Do Both, go here: http://idoboth.com".
You can find Ricardo asking questions in Stack Overflow, posting useful bits of Web Design/Development in Twitter. You can check Ricardo's personal portfolio site, and see some of his comics drawings in Dribbble. He also tinkers with demos in CodePen and constantly posting Gists in GitHub.
