Key points in this video

It's not about the tools. You need a plan to make those tools work.

Good design entails...

  • Gathering requirements — Define what targets the result needs to fulfill.
  • Coming up with solutions — Pick tools and approaches that can help meet the requirements.
  • Assessing the options — Compare the costs and benefits of each approach.
  • Adapting as needed — Be ready to change as needs do.
