Interactive Developer : Google Engineer’s Portfolio

Projects | July 31, 2015 | 14 Comments





드디어 1년 넘게 공들여 쓴 <인터랙티브 디벨로퍼>가 출간되었습니다. 지난 10년간 제 분야에서 일하면서 경험했던 것을 디자인과 함께 에세이 형식으로 풀어쓴 책입니다. 단순히 책이라기보단 저의 10년을 담은 개인프로젝트를 만든다는 생각으로 글은 물론 책에 실린 사진들에서 표지디자인까지 직접 작업하며 신경을 썼습니다. 보통 책을 발행하면 마케팅 등 여러 가지 이유에서 표지 디자인이나 기타 세밀한 부분을 저자가 마음대로 할 수 없는데, 이번에 한빛 미디어에서 최대한 저의 의견을 반영해 주셔서 아주 만족스러운 책이 나온 것 같습니다. 까다로운 저자 덕분에 같이 많이 고생하신 한빛 미디어의 관계자분들께 감사의 말씀을 전합니다.

군 재대를 기다리면서 사이버지식 정보방(PC방)을 이용할때면 매번 블로그 새로고침하면서 기다리고 또 기다렸습니다.
책 나온거 확인하자마자 바로 질렀네요…

저의 꿈이 웹디자이너로 시작해서 미대에 진학하기 시작하고,
김종민님이랑 많이 비슷한지라, 많은 도움이 될거라 생각합니다.

감사히 잘 읽겠습니다.
그동안 고생 많으셨습니다.

Will there be a English version of this book?

    cmiscm  August 5, 2015 at 3:18 PM

    I hope, but not sure yet :)

Mr kim, I really like your works and design, hope there is an English version of this book. :) I want to be an interactive developer like you , where should I start? Could you please give me some suggestions?

    cmiscm  October 29, 2015 at 3:54 PM

    Hi, I would suggest to you to learn any code first. Such as JavaScript, Objective-C or Java for Android. The first time, it may little hard, but if you become familiar with a programming language, learning other programming languages is not a big deal. And please keep in mind that there are no shortcuts to becoming a person you want to be. Please see many designs and have many experiences.

      Thank you very much for your suggestions! I’m working as a front-end developer now but I’m not so experienced. I totally agree on what you said there are no shortcuts to becoming a person you want to be. I’m curious where do you find good designs and how do you get inspired? Maybe my quesition is a little big, cause I really don’t have many expirences about design and interaction.

        Hi, Good design is not difficult, the design that you like is the good design. I usually get inspired from my favorite things, such as minimal, Gogh, desk, typography, etc. I really want to translate my book to English for you, because the contents are very good to understand my design process. I hope someday you can read this book in English.

          Thanks for your reply,it really helped! hope I could read the English of your book one day:) I think I still have a long way to go, but I will try.
