About the book

The key to successful projects and products are the people behind them. Have you ever found yourself wondering how these thinkers and creators of the web actually work, and how they tackle their projects? Where do they seek inspiration, and what are the lessons they have learned in the course of their careers? With the help of this eBook, we want to focus on the people behind the names for a change.

The authors of this eBook had the occasion to sit down with experienced influencers and successful designers for a row of interviews in which they provide first-hand insights into their very own workflows, habits and strategies. WordPress co-founders Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little are among them, JavaScript evangelist Doug Crockford, IDEO’s Duane Bray, Meetup’s vice president Andres Glusman, as well as many other creative minds from design, UX and startup branches. Their insights and stories are not only truly inspiring, but also contribute to giving this fast-moving, tech-driven web industry a more familiar face.
