How to Become a UI/UX Designer

Hey Webwide,

A friend of mine asked me yesterday if I could help out her brother-in-law, who was looking to become a professional UX designer and work at startups. He asked me 8-10 detailed questions and explained he'd already built a basic web app using JavaScript.

He mostly wanted to know about where to go from there. What should he do next?

Here's some of the questions he asked:
  • What makes an awesome freelance developer?
  • What design concepts are important?
  • When should I start building prototypes?
  • Which skills should I learn? Should I learn React?
Since I've been studying web development and working at startups for more than a decade, I decided to put together everything I knew into one compact video.

I thought some of you might enjoy it too — or have feedback for me about other tools/resources/practices I should implement myself.
