Project SFDay 6

Today we visited Zendesk, a medium sized company specializing in call center software. There was some familiarity as Zendesk shared some of the characteristics of a technological company in San Fransisco, with its open planned offices and pantries to provide food for the employees.

There we also met Jian Wei, a product designer for Zendesk from Singapore. Through his insightful sharing we learnt about the Principles of Design at Zendesk, the Design Triangle and about the requirements to work in San Fransisco (Visas, etc.) He also taught us to learn so that your knowledge is like a “T” were you have basic knowledge in most topics, but have deep knowledge in one. This is ensure our competitiveness of us in the Job Market. So Software Engineers should learn design and Designers should learn to program.
