Please say a little about why you joined?

I want to get better at design overall, but especially in UX. While I've mostly worked with back-end web technologies, I've always thought that without a good front-end UX design, all the back end support doesn't mean much. That being said, simply having flashy design without good supporting technology is equally useless. I want to join because while I'm learning more and more about back-end development, I also want to get better and better at front-end design. Essentially that's why I want to join this group.

What is your design experience? If you have none, tell us about how you got interested in design.

I actually worked as a fashion designer (I use that term very loosely) before I started as a developer. It wasn't so much interest as it was random chance. However, the more I did it the more interesting I became in design itself.

Is there anything in particular you'd like to learn?

I would love to learn some design principles. I wasn't trained as a designer so some theoretical knowledge would be very helpful. Also, when it comes to UX design, I would definitely love to learn the latest technologies/techniques, best practices, and look at examples of great works by other designers.

Introduction

Hi! I'm a web developer by training, but I always know that good UX is just as important with it comes to software, especially web apps. I've done some design work in the past, and I'm looking to hone my skills as a UX designer through more practice
