A few highlights:

On why designers should learn programming, 9:35

On education and knowing your design tools, 15:00
“The faster you are at the tool and the quicker you are at doing things that are boring, the more time you can spend on real design problems and actually innovating and solving the things that the computer can’t solve.”

On the future of UX design in a world of fast-changing tech, 20:46
“There's always going to be room for problem solving when humans interact with technology.”
