About The Things We Have And Haven’t Learned (Yet)

The life of a designer, developer or running-your-own-business-person is great and rewarding, but can also be frustrating at times.

After working in the industry for many years, we are still learning every single day.

As we all know, there is always something new to learn – and besides the ever evolving technologies behind the stuff we do, there are numerous other lessons to be learned (sometimes the hard way) as well.

Today, we get a lot of our daily information from the web, continuously feeding our knowledge. Years ago we used to buy lots of books, but this has drastically changed in the recent years. Today the world of design and web development is fostered by a large community. We feel that the only real wisdom is the one that is shared, and now we want to give something back to this great community.

When talking to other designers, developers and friends from throughout the industry – no matter how successful, large the company, how old, how much experience and so on – we realized that almost all of them run into the same problems and challenges. There are a lot of good blogs, magazines and other resources out there with a focus on design, web development, best practices and a lot more. We want to share our “lessons learned”. We will also post other things that we think are noteworthy, funny, interesting or helpful or all of that combined in any way.

The how, when and why is something we are still unsure about, so this will become another lesson learned for us in the future.

Enjoy the reading. We are always happy to hear your feedback and suggestions.

Holger, Oliver, Tom, still learning :-)
