THOUGHT OF THE DAY



Don't Design for the End User As an emerging tech sector, we have a few other things to knock out first, and the scramble to make user experience more fluid and seamless is kinda putting the cart before the horse. 

DX > UX

Developer experience, or "designing for the developer."

The way I've heard developer experience described best is "DX is about delivering robust functionality that is stable, speedy, and visually intuitive...it enhances functional power and allows developers to do things that they could never do before." 

One of the biggest bottlenecks to rapid development is dealing with the complexities that come with a nascent technology that doesn't have much in the way of process standardization or robust tooling to deploy and test software. Every step towards improving DX is a step away from yak shaving, or the "seemingly endless series of small tasks that have to be completed before the next step in a project can move forward."

Doubling down on developer-oriented tools will lower the barrier to integrating with and iterating on blockchain-related projects. It mitigates the risk of deploying buggy software. It increases the likelihood you'll catch and patch up a security hole. Ultimately, though, it lowers the barrier to entry. And the lower the barrier to entry is, the easier it'll be to get more bodies working on building for "the end user." And with more developers in the space, we might just end up finding that killer app after all.
