Features editor Ivana here! While Rachel was attending to some life changes, I fulfilled a nerdy dream and went to An Event Apart: Denver this week. The big theme that resonated with me? Fundamentals.
We must always recall the basic principles of what we’re trying to build—and document them. We must think of the people–both those creating and those they’re creating for—and choose tools to build software purposefully with those folks’ stories in mind. It's also critical to document our processes, for transparency and posterity, and integrate things like animation and visual polish—it's worth it, making for better products and better creators!
So, to build on that inspiration, the links in this issue are either from a conf speaker, or a reflection of the theme! Enjoy!
