phroggyy 2017-11-03 00:14:25 I think it's important to have a *basic* understanding of design, but more towards UX (positioning, sizing, contrast, helper text, etc) than UI design https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kXgWRN7weM I think understanding UX is *super important* as a dev
muzical84 2017-11-03 00:15:03 I can answer UI questions from an accessibility standpoint, (Dad’s almost totally blind, so it’s a bit of a passion,) but not aesthetics :stuck_out_tongue: Ooooh; saving that video.
phroggyy 2017-11-03 00:15:56 @muzical84 you don't need to be able to pick all the colours, but you should be able to say "no, this is a bad colour because there's not enough contrast to surrounding elements, so it's unclear to the user" and tell the designer your thoughts
mikebronner 2017-11-03 00:16:17 completely agree … any sort of developer needs to have some level of UX and UI design to be able to talk with front-end devs intelligently, and develop a backend that doesn’t cause problems because of differing design decisions in the backend that don’t work with design decisions made in the front-end
phroggyy 2017-11-03 00:16:25 I regularly argue against our current designer when I disagree with a design decision

muzical84 2017-11-03 00:16:40 Yikes! “Working knowledge” is a good standard.
phroggyy 2017-11-03 00:17:46 Most recently it was how we displayed uploaded images – we had a bug where the image preview which we had looked like it wasn't part of the comment you were submitting (this was comments with optional images attached), so the quickfix the PMs and designer devised was "don't show a preview, just show the filename next to the attach button"
mikebronner 2017-11-03 00:17:46 @muzical84 yes, thats a great way to put it
muzical84 2017-11-03 00:18:02 (It came up on the stream and I thought it was relevant.) How does “chemistry” work when some team members may or may not be on the autism spectrum? We don’t always….mesh….well with others….
phroggyy 2017-11-03 00:18:51 I argued against this on the basis that a user writing a comment (this is B2B stuff, so it's long comments discussing _their_ own customers) would want to double check their image before posting And be open to the possibility that you're both in the wrong @muzical84 first determine why you don't get along, then talk to a manager about it
muzical84 2017-11-03 00:20:28 I don’t always know, and the other party wasn’t willing to tell me :confused: Usually, at least at my last job, who was “wrong” was strictly an issue of seniority. i.e. a more senior dev was automatically right no matter how provably-wrong he or she might have actually been.
t.huynh 2017-11-03 00:21:37 perhaps “Full stack” could be defined as proficient at BE or FE and familiar (and willing) to de the other
mikebronner 2017-11-03 00:21:59 @muzical84 i think that fosters a bad culture in a company. it is important that issues are debated on merit, so that people can learn
