The Advice - Duane King
Duane King is an Interactive Creative Director and Designer, in Portland. Duane's one of the most knowledgeable and resourceful designers I’ve met. Today we sit down to talk about the longevity and sustainability of design, starting two businesses and working with companies like Nike and Herman Miller. Duane grew up in Texas, started a luxury branding company and then moved to Portland to pursue design. Since then, he's made huge contributions to design, including designing one of my favorite websites (with Nike!). He shares his past 20 years of struggles, successes and experiences with us. He also has a cat who goes on walks and plays fetch!

The Community - Jed Schmidt
Jed Schmidt is a JavaScript Developer at Uniqlo in NY. Before that Jed lived in Tokyo and worked as a Japanese Translator. We talk about the huge shift in jobs, and how it feels to be working in a field that was once his hobby! Jed also was a founder of BrooklynJS. He tells us what sparked the inspiration for the meetup, what it means for the NY community and why he's decided to step down. We have a bunch of debates about minimalist coding, staying up to date on trends in Programming and people degrading each other's coding style. Jed also shares a link to him singing A Capella on Good Morning America.
