🔥 5 Awesome Design Tools 🔥

Have you been eyeing these cool cards and thumbnails that a lot of us are sharing?

Do you want to get started as well?
Here are 5 tools to get you going 👇 🧵
🔸 Figma

This is the one I personally prefer.
It's a little more advanced than other tools, but you can really make some cool stuff once you get familiar with it.

🔸 Canva

This is a super popular tool - if you're a beginner in graphic design, this tool is for you!

🔸 Carbon

With Carbon, you can make cool-looking small code snippets.
Their UI is a bit clunky, but you can configure your snippets in a broad range of different ways.

🔸 Snappify

Snappify is similar to Carbon, but has an overall better UX.
With Snappify, it's really easy to make beautiful looking snippets *fast*, even though it's a bit more limited in terms of customizability than Carbon.

🔸 Stencil

Stencil is a great tool if you need to make creatives fast.
It's not nearly as advanced as Figma and Canva, but you'll have some cool-looking creatives ready in no time.

"Stop having expectations".
It's advice I hear really often - and I don't buy it at all!

Have loads of expectations 🤩
It can be pure joy if you let it!
First of all, you can't really cheat your brain.
It'll have expectations - that's pretty much what the brain does; makes predictions.

Have you ever tried to "talk yourself down" in fear of getting disappointed, and when it then happened - you got disappointed anyway 😅
That's because you can't fool yourself.
If you know that there's a chance of something really good happening (even if the odds are low), there will be some expectation.

Embrace it instead 😍
Isn't it the best feeling in the world, hoping that something really cool might happen?

5 annoying JavaScript habits that you want to avoid.

I see these 5 over and over.

They are bad for performance, readability, and they signal a lack of basic understanding of the JavaScript language.

Let me go through them here 🧵👇
Using map() instead of forEach().

Arrays expose different methods for different purposes.
If you are simply iterating through a list, you want to use forEach(), not map().

Using the wrong method may miscommunicate the intent.
Creating an extra arrow function (thus an extra function closure), while not being necessary is both bad for readability and bad for performance.

It's a sign that the author doesn't truly understand that in the nature of JavaScript, you can pass functions by reference.
