Hello Product Hunters, Exactly 4 years ago, I started this humble journey of writing a book about design and code. Never in a million years did I think it would shape my career. I feel very blessed to be able to continue writing for you and I thank you for supporting this project. To celebrate our 4th anniversary, the book is available at a big discount for a limited time! Today, we’re announcing a big chapter about SpriteKit. We’ve spent a lot of time designing this game so that it can be fun to teach, specifically for designers. I think you’ll enjoy learning 2D animations and coding a simple platformer iPhone game in Swift 4. Ask me anything! –Meng

@mengto http://designcode.io is written in React, any chance you could put out a tutorial on how to make an app page like it?
Meng ToMakerPro@mengto · Designer
@thomaswang Absolutely, we're slowly getting better at React and picking up new techniques like styled-components and CSS grid. The course is definitely on the way within a month or two!
