Welcome to Designer vs. Developer, a show that tries to solve the challenges faced in the industry by opening a conversation between the two, providing take aways, solutions to workflows, tools & discussions on everyday struggles.

This week Mustafa speaks to Surma, a Developer Advocate on the Google Developer Relations Team, about whether the design tools we use are fit for purpose and how Dash Elements (now renamed to ‘HowTo: Components’) will help educate designers and developers about important topics like accessibility.

just design in browser and stop relying on developer to come up with markup

Thanks for the lesson. That said, I'm still annoyed at putting so much (English) semantics in the tags instead of taking an approach akin to CSS with the semantic marking as attributes.

"We're not there yet" and we (hopefully) never will be. Tech won't stop evolving for us to catch up with it. The moment web catches up, some other technology will be ahead of it.

Many thanks for your comments 🙂 We are trying to talk about conceptual things and concerns but at the same time offer advice and solutions. But these conversations are like tech. They never stop evolving for us to catch up with them 😉

Oh, this "there". 🙂 Yeah, we will definitely get there and I'm sure by then we'll be talking about how our tools don't reflect the different FOVs / device texture processing power / whatnot. :)BTW, I really like your show. Always a pleasure to stop for a while and think about well thought out and articulated questions and answers.

Great point, I suppose some of us want to feel like we get to a place where we were 10 years ago with Flash where everything seemed possible creatively speaking.

Hey everyone! Just a heads up: The link to WebFundamentals in the HowTo Components repository gives a 404 because the section hasn’t launched just yet. It‘ll launch within the next few days so stay tuned!(Or, you know, follow @DasSurma on Twitter to get a timely tweet once we do launch ^^)

Sorry about that, the name of the project changed hence the 404. It should be fine now though; github.com/GoogleChrome/howto-components/

Her'es how to always deliver pixel perfect websites: Serve a static image of the design. Then stop using misguided design fad terminology.
