I saw this yesterday. I think that one thing that doesn’t get mentioned enough here is the craftsman-like understanding of your materials that comes from using the actual code to make your design. You end up internalizing the way that the materials like to bend, and you stop creating things that can only stand up with a lot of scaffolding to hold them in place – so your work is less fragile.

What strikes me most is the statement that CSS+HTML+Javascript isn’t really
coding. It’s been my belief for a while now that it is, indeed, just basics.

The next big walkaway ( for me anyways ) is this unspoken concept of
designers as Content Delivery Systems. When I was just a print designer, I
believed that I was a content creator – but as time marches on I am more
persuaded that I actually create nothing, that all I do is shape and mold
and orchestrate content.
