Topic 1: What do I tell a designer on Windows who finds Adobe too expensive? Unfortunately, Gimp, Inkscape, and Paint.NET don’t seem to be the best alternatives.
Topic 2: I'd love to hear about how you setup your new Macs. any bootstrap process you use to install apps you always use? Common configs or settings changes, etc.
Topic 3: Sam can you talk about developing Old Sport, if you used Swift... other libraries etc
Topic 4: How do you assess what project to start on? I'm stuck as I can't push past the feeling it's going to be a lot of work for no reward.
Topic 5: How do you work with people who use a different design workflow than you?
