Weekly curated resources for designers — thinkers and makers.
“Sorry, would-be UX designers, don’t believe the marketing hype, UX bootcamps won’t do it for most of you. The model is broken. At best, you will get an introduction to UX — which is great — but most of these bootcamps won’t prepare you for a real-world job.”
