Hi everyone! My name is Tyler and I wanted to introduce myself to the community. I just joined Repl.it as a designer and I’m so excited to help make your experience more exciting, productive, and creative. I’ll be working primarily on a mix of user interface and user experience design.
Some background about me: I grew up doing art and architecture, then studied computer science and math in college. Afterwards, I did a master’s degree in education where I focused on making tools for learning and creativity. If you’re familiar with Scratch, I worked there this past summer and prototyped new tools for brainstorming!
Over the next few months, you’ll start to see changes to the site where we focus on making our typography, colors, and user interface more consistent and pleasant all around. You’ll also start to see collaboration and community become a more central part of your Repl.it experience.
As my first contribution on the team, you might have noticed that some of your files have icons! We started by choosing some of your favorite programming languages to make it easier to find specific file types. Over time, we will include icons for every programming language on Repl.it.
