It doesn’t really matter when you are starting to learn, but what you should learn is ui design theory cause once you know that, the software doesn’t matter. But, most will say Figma. Check out this course https://learnui.design

Started with sketch, everyone moved to figma. Never touched XD

I used Sketch for the last several years but did my last few designs in XD. I still technically prefer sketch, I think, but i found using inVision for prototyping to be incredibly lacking and clunky.

It pays to be fluent in both Figma and Sketch. Especially with how their respective smart/auto layouts work.

Using Sketch but my team is currently transitioning to Figma.

I keep seeing all these posts advising people to take a leave of absence instead of quitting. Do LOAs even exist outside of big law / big consulting firms?

I just can’t imagine the firm being open to an LOA. Has anyone at a non-major firm done a LOA?

My husband's been smoking for almost 15 years and can't stop. He tried vaping but didn't like various side effects. Any time I bring up him quitting he either ignores me and leaves the house to go smoke or gets angry, screams at me and says I'm not helping him. He did try patches and gum for a day and didn't like them. We've been together for 14 years and are thinking about having a baby. Should I just accept the fact that he will get cancer and die while putting me and our child through pain?

Hi friends - need a suggestion. My mother got critically ill due to Covid and has been in the hospital in India for over a month with added complications. Hospital charges are through the roof and it is a long road ahead of us. Are there financial aids, options available to explore to meet the expenses? We are salaried people and parents are retired. We are exploring loan options and wanted to check with this group for other creative ways to manage. Thanks a lot for the help!

My spouse has made it clear to me that they no longer support me working in biglaw and want me to find a job with more reasonable hours. They were supportive early in my career and when we had one child, but our second was born a couple of years ago and all the additional work they put in at home, the lack of family time and lack of couples time is becoming a big strain on our marriage. We are in a high cost of living city so will have to undergo a major lifestyle change if we forego my biglaw..

I am currently doing my full-time internship at a startup where I am getting paid 17$/hr. I will most probably be continuing with them in Fall as a part-time and asked for an upgrade to 25$/hr. I asked for that upgrade because I already have around two years of experience outside of Canada as a social media executive in a multinational company. I am currently doing a masters degree at Concordia so I believe 25$/hr would be more appropriate. Am I aiming too high?
