  1. Will there be a transcript after? Would love to at least read this debate.

  2. Hi Tina, I’m a long time reader and really enjoy your posts every day.

    I have a question spurred on by your item today on whether designers should learn to code.

    I’m trying to steer my college aged kids to a good way to learn to design if you’re learning today.

    If you were going to have your own kids learn to design would you have them learn a visual method (like laying out a website in Photoshop) or a code based method?

  3. Should coders learn to design then, maybe? Learning to code is an absolute necessity if you want to be a good web designer (key word is good). You’ll understand the limitations and loopholes and how a design works when translated into code. You can have infinite possibilities at your fingertips.

  4. What, are you going in to politics now?…


  5. Do you know if this debate will be recorded?
