* * * Codifying Intuition: A Deep Dive into Debugging
Debugging is one of the most fundamental skills all software developers should have, but is unfortunately often overlooked. Even worse, many developers lack a methodology for debugging and rely on intuition alone. Intuition is great but without a method, it's difficult to approach improving your debugging skills, and it's even harder to teach when you don't have a system yourself.
In this talk, you'll learn how to systematically debug your code and how you can leverage tools to take your debugging skills to the next level. Whether you are a new grad itching to become a better developer, or a senior engineer unsure of how to develop your mentees, there is something for everyone.

* * * Prototyping: Nobody Cares How You Did It
Building on his presentation around Motion, Tom will be exploring the importance of protyping motion and micro interactions when it comes to Interaction and/or UX Design in the digital space.
Among the topics discussed will be:
Why protypes are so important. Hint: You can’t describe them.
Where prototypes ft into the UX and/or Interaction Design workflow.
A quick survey of the prototyping tools out there including Adobe Experience Design, Principle for Mac, Proto.io, UXPin and After Effects.
Where protypes fit in a Design System.
