Welcome to Episode 13 of Immutable! In this episode, we discuss open source traction, spec redesigns, staying excited about side projects, the best ways to network on a budget, and organizing layers in your design files.

If you have questions of your own, you can tweet us at @immutablefm, email us at questions@immutable.fm, or join our Slack team!

Topic 1: How do you get traction on open source projects?
Topic 2: As a student applying to positions, would a recruiter like it or take offense at a spec redesign of their product in your portfolio?
Topic 3: I always find myself coming up with cool ideas and concepts that I get really excited about making. Then after a while I eventually stop and forget about them. Do you have any tips on finishing ideas/projects and seeing them through? Especially from a design and programming point of view.
Topic 4: If a person had $1k and wanted put it towards “networking” (is there a better word for this now?), what’s the best way for them to spend it? Round trip to SF and get coffee with a bunch of people? A conference? Which ones? Any other tips? Etc, etc...
Topic 5: How you do actually organize your layers and how important it is to you? Where does this organization integrate into your process?
