Code Literacy & Developer Tools
I just wanted to add one quick thing to that. So, as designers right? If you start increasing your illiteracy and using a tool like inspector. Now all of a sudden, you're empowered, right? You have this extra ability, not just to be frustrated, being like ah, I just wanna move that thing over just a little bit. You can go in and play, and see cause and effect right there, and it's not going to hurt kind of any of the real code, it's all temporary, ya know? So you can kind of go and play and then that's gonna allow you to kinda give that feedback to the developer. So this is a really kind of important thing to play with that everyone can kind of just dive in, open up a website that you like, and just start to see, you know, how it was made. And just start to kinda change things and see what happens. It's really, really fun.
Yeah and basically you can't hide behind this, oh I can't see the code I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about, like you can't do that anymore, you have to like actively embrace yes I have access to the same code you do. Like, it's exposed. You are part of this conversation and I encourage you to kind of dig in and participate.
