Hi Marie! Didn't know this existed, thanks for the link :)

I am an experienced developer turned fulltime solo maker. I am working on two different web apps (having to to do habits and books). I am teaching myself design/UI/UX. I would love to get feedback on the things I create from experienced UI/UX designers. (i.e. you can tell me exactly why does my UI hurt your eyes :) )

@marie_dm thanks for starting this thread.

I enjoyed your post, thanks for sharing! I really like tracking stuff and numbers as well!

Had a great chat with Amy and Lakshmi! Thank you for joining, yay! I'll plan to host more and meet more of you!
