Becoming a power user in Sketch is all about knowing the tiny ins and outs of the interface. Recently, I collaborated with the great team over at Designers.How to craft a 5 lesson course all about this subject. In this course, you'll become a better designer through deep knowledge of your tool, shaving seconds and reducing strain from repeated actions. I've gathered up a huge volume of those little tidbits and secrets and bundled them into this jam-packed course!
The first episode is FREE, you'll need to become a member of their incredible community to get into the rest.
I'll occasionally publish my personal notes from reading a new book, attending an industry conference or something similar on this blog. I personally refer back to my own posts frequently, revisiting technical skills or refreshing myself on the highlights for a new project.
This is one of those posts. I just completed reading Practical SVG by Chris Coyier from the A Book Apart series. As usual, it was a fantastic read and brought me up to speed on the current state of SVGs for the web! My notes follow.
Remote work gives you the power to craft your own life.
It seems that the slow transition to larger remote workforces in the technology space has finally begun. The many benefits of working remotely combined with the pitfalls of modern offices and the current robustness of remote-enabling technology have finally culminated in this perfect moment. The time is finally right for remote work, right now.

I've been using and experimenting with the Amazon Echo for a little over two weeks now. Echo is a cloud-connected, wireless speaker from Amazon, currently in limited release. Overall, it's been an outstanding addition to my home as well as an all-around neat gadget. I love to watch Amazon continue to grow as a company by bringing offerings into so many, varied fields. As usual, Amazon delivered a quality product, at the right price here. It seems as though Amazon has correctly predicted the evolution of the wireless speaker, and beat all competitors to market with an outstanding product.
