Mackenzie Child, Part Two: Design Background, Developer Skill

In the second half of this episode, Mackenzie Child and I talk about his 12 in 12 challenge, and what it was like to make the switch from designer to developer.

We cover a lot of ground in this episode. Starting with Mackenzie's first job as a designer, getting the backstory on why he decided to learn code, what encouraged him to make the switch, and how designers can get coding, today through Unicasts.
