Today we caught up with Joel Califa, a design manager at Digital Ocean. In this episode we discuss the state of design Twitter, design quality and process, managing up, hiring designers, rethinking empathy, and so much more.
We've also got a big announcement: we're building a new thing for you! It's called Spectrum
and it's a place for the community to hang out and share what's going on in design, development, and anything else you might be interested in.
We're still in beta, so expect bugs and lots of improvements over the next few weeks, but in the meantime we'd love to hang out with you and chat!
